Awesome Chevron Card – Runway Inspired Challenge ric#73

Here is my card for the lastest Runway Inspired Challenge (ric#73).

The inspiration piece, from the Balmain Spring 2015 collection, is colorful and bold:

I used a new Hampton Arts adhesive stencil (no masking tape required!) to create the pattern with my Kuretake watercolor paints on regular cardstock (not watercolor paper). I added a horizontal strip of glossy black paper to make up for the fact that I didn’t quite center my sentiment within the chevron pattern.

I applied the watercolors rather heavily, I wanted the color to be bold. I was surprised that the finished painting was glossy in spots – I am assuming that is related to how thickly I applied the paint.

And I resisted the urge to splatter something sparkly/shiny (like Wink of Stella or Perfect Pearls) onto the finished card. This card works for any of my offspring just the way it is, sparkly things would limit my potential recipient audience!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Off to the doctor for another lung check.

Supplies: Stamp – Paper Smooches, paper – California Paper Goods glossy black, Papertrey Ink White, ink – VersaFine Onyx Black, paints – Kuretake watercolors, stencil – Hampton Arts, embossing powder – Filigree Fine Art Powder.
