Welcome to the Practical Scrappers Specialty Team Blog Hop! This weekend you can swing by the blogs of any of the listed team members and check out their Chevron Projects. Practical Scrappers and several team members are doing giveaways! Scrapbook Pal has graciously offered to sponsor this hop and Practical Scrappers is going to be giving away a $25 gift certificate to the Scrapbook Pal store! Details on how to enter are on the Practical Scrappers blog!
So, have you ever had a great idea, you are positive that it is going to look GREAT, and then you go and try to make it work, and it just.doesn’t.happen.? That was me with my chevrons! LOL I had a GREAT plan! I bet if I used a thicker chevron, it would have worked wonderfully! Maybe I will try that when I have a bit more time!
So, I tried to remedy some of what I had already done. I used the chevron square that I cut out with my brand spankin new Artbooking cartridge and made a mask of it. I was going for a bit of the ombre look with the inking.
I was going for a single layer CAS card (that’s Clean and Simple). That stamp is a new one in the Idea Book that goes live on August 1st. Isn’t it fun? I colored it in with a blending pen and lagoon ink.
I hope you like my quick card! Make sure to stop by all of the other ladies’ blogs!

Love the card! I think the ombre look turned out great! 🙂
love the way the ink came through the mask…almost looks sparkly!!!
Love the color and the effect of one color on your chevron card.
Love the simplicity of this.
I love ombre and it looks great on your card. I haven’t gotten any ombre papers yet, but every time I see it done, I fall in love! TFS!
