Chevron stencilling with Distress Inks + tutorial video

Hi there!

Welcome to another blog post and this time two new cards!

This time I am using some Distress Inks to create two different cards, but the same technique.

The colours I am using is Picked Raspberry, Mustard Seed, Mowed Lawn and Salty Ocean. I used the mini blending tool from Ranger to apply the inks. They blend so easily and I just love how they combine and create new colours in between! Fantastic!

I used Memory Box Chevron Chic stencil, such a pretty pattern and created two of the same colour combination stripes. I used the first one vertically to create a Thank You card. I decided to go with the vellum stripe across the card with some gold embossing – I do not use that enough that’s for sure! I think it adds elegancy to the card on that vellum.

The other card front with chevron stripes I used horizontally to make a Happy Birthday card. This time I went with black background, additional colour matching stars and clear embossed, black sentiment.

  1. Bardzo piękne karty. Dodanie pergaminowego paska spowodowało, że karta jeszcze bardziej zyskała na urodzie. Gratuluję wyjątkowo udanych kartek..

  2. Właśnie zobaczyła tutorial – doskonała robota. Świetnie zrobiony, fajnie zmontowany. Ja niestety nie mam takich aktorskich zdolności i brak mi wykształcenia operatorskiego, nie wspominając o montażu… 🙂

  3. Both cards are really beautiful! I love how you created the ‘rainbow’ of colors with your stencil and the gold embossed sentiment is perfect! Love the stars on the 2nd one, too! Thanks so much for the video, and for playing along with us this week at ATSM!
