Chevron and Bold Hello

Hello! Sneaking in another card for a couple of challenges - LOVE how it came out! Pretty clean and simple:

So, I started off super inspired by the current Runway Inspired Challenge:

And since I decided to go with distress inks, I thought I use the current Lawnscaping challenge as well:

I started off with my Lawn Fawn Chevron Backdrops stamp set, and I heat embossed the medium sized chevrons on white cardstock with clear powder. 

I then inked it up with two different colors of Tim holtz distress ink, blending it out in the center. I was going to make this one layer, so I masked it off with washi tape, but ended up making a smudge with a dirty finger! Oops! So...I trimmed off the panel, and remounted it on a fresh (clean!) white cardbase.

I added the sentiment from Just My Type, and placed some black enamel dots on each side of it.

I just love these bright fun colors! And I'm still working on that clean and simple stuff! Thanks for stopping by! Have a great night!!!


  1. Stunning card, Heather (as all of yours are!). You're convincing me to try some things outside of my 'comfort zone' - embossing, playing with inks (my stash is soooo limited!), exploring different techniques, in general. Thanks for sharing, and for inspiring!!
