It's Nat's turn to set the dare over at Daring Cardmakers this week. Nat wants us to pay special homage to that very popular design element that is doing the rounds....
Here is my card....
Chevrons are everywhere lately and I had lots of papers to choose from but opted for this beautiful paper from MME Love Me collection. I wanted too use something bright rather than softer colours on this card. I started off with kraft cardstock as my base and then layered the chevron paper. I inked both kraft and PP with PI Fresh Snow to give the edges a softer look.
The butterfly stamp is from Darkroom Doors and I just love it! I inked with PI Fresh Snow and stamped on to kraft cardstock. I wasn't up to cutting it out with my kraft knife, as it can get fiddly with those point wings! So cut out with my trusty Fiskars scissors. As the butterfly looked quite plain, I decided to add a small ivory tea rose to the centre and some small round stick pins as antennas.
The sentiment is part of the same set at the butterfly from Darkroom Doors. I inked it in Memento Lady Bug Red ink on to white cardstock. I wanted to cut it out with one of my nesties but the sentiment was too tall for them so just snipped it out instead. I added a little chevron stitching to the edges to give interest.
Quite a quick and simple card but I do love my butterflies and might just keep this card for myself!
