Lemon Zest Chevrons.

Happy Sunday my friends,

Hope you are all having a fun Sunday. I am here to share with you my card for Jackie's Pantone Colour challenge. By taking part in this challenge you could win a custom designed blog header by Jackie. Check out the details here.
Today I have made a card for the 'Lemon Zest' challenge and decided I would case the card Jackie made for this challenge.

Here is my case using water colour paints directly onto PTI chevron stamps.


This is a fun technique to try. You really feel like you are painting and it is very relaxing. I followed the same layout as Jackie and just changed the stripes to 3 lines of different sized chevrons and repeated this 3 times. I added these cute little butterflies with the gems. I like the kinda messy, arty feel to the final look. I managed to find some lemon card in my stash for the base.
I am also going to enter this into a new to me, challenge site, I came across Keep it Simple. They are having a chevron challenge. And the twine challenge at Drunken Stampers

And here is Jackie's card:

  8. The little black, blinged butterflies on the bright yellow chevrons are perfect! So is the way the twine separates the sentiment border from the main panel. Thanks for joining us at Drunken Stampers this week!

  10. This is so zesty and cool! I like how you left a white border on the left side of your card to put your sentiment and the twine. A great CASE and a great design!
