Inked Chevron Card (Sharon Jeffs)




Inked Chevron Card
by Sharon Jeffs


I've been trying to have a go at creating less fussy cards lately, I really admire the clean and simple look and so I decided to have a go using the Chevron Card Panel Die, one that is quickly becoming one of my favourites!

I cut this Chevron panel from a heavy Watercolour paper.  To create the colour strip direct to the panel, I masked off the edges with a pair of post-it notes and it was then easy to add colour without worrying about any edges getting smudged.

I chose to use a blending tool and rubbed Distress inks into the unmasked area.  Once I took the post-it notes away, I had a colour block strip across a lovely clean panel.  I then mounted it to my card and added a Chevron accent and a flower to finish.

The best part of my card and my new Clean and simple look was that my card only took 30 minutes to complete!  Perfect for me and my hectic lifestyle.
