Stampin' Up! Australia - Color Coach Card #35 - Fusion! Chevrons! Thinlits!

Tempting Turquoise #2


Fusion have an awesome inspiration/sketch combo happening this week. CHEVRONS!

My card is another step along my Color Coach Journey and it uses Tempting Turquoise, Rich Razzleberry and Pumpkin Pie....in a bit of an unusual way....

One of my fellow Elite Stampers team members shared this video on Facebook the other day....it uses a couple of techniques combined.....stamping with an embossing folder and misting inks prior to stamping. 

The video is from Audrie Magno-Gordon....she is so clever!

So....I decided to use chevrons in my main panel.....I sponged Tempting Turquoise, Rich Razzleberry and Pumpkin Pie onto my chevron embossing folder and then sprayed a mist of water over it. I pressed my watercolour paper onto the embossing folder and just as Audrie said, the colours run together beautifully and you get a gorgeous 'arty' image. 

In hindsight, I would have made the turquoise border a lot thinner....I think it competes with the chevron piece too much. 

Anyway....I did a couple of others so maybe I will play with those and make some different cards. :)

Hope you like my card!
