Fun with the Split Chevron Stencil - Day 1

Hi all!  Is it really March already?  Have I really ONLY posted 4 times this year?  What???  YIKES!!!!  Let's see if I can make up for some lost time!

I've spent the last few nights playing with different backgrounds using the newly released Split Chevron Stencil.  Here I sponged on a diagonal using Sauna, Mandarin Spice, Peppermint Scrub and Royal Treatment inks.  I actually started with a 4 x 5 1/4" piece of white card stock, however once I moved though all of the colors and tried to repeat the pattern, the Royal Treatment and Sauna created a color similar to...I hate to say poop!  So, I cut that right off ;) 

It's all about being flexible in your design.

Next I flicked a bit of water on the sponged piece and removed the droplets with a dry cloth.  I placed the Split Chevron stencil over the sponged and splattered background and added white embossing paste.  Eek, I love how it turned out.  

I added a Midnight strip of card stock to the background and added it to a white card base with foam tape.  For contrast and a big POP, I stamped the Zen Feathers in Midnight ink and added them with foam tape as well.  I finished by stamping the sentiment right to the card base.

I'll be back on Monday with another way to use the Split Chevron stencil!

So pretty, Maureen! And you are absolutely right: your cannot have the vibrant colours of the background spoiled by a muddy brown. Also love the stark black of the feathers against the colourful background.
