Fusion Chevrons

Well, Hello Thursday.  Where did Tuesday and Wednesday go?

I have a card for the Fusion challenge.

I went back and forth about what I was going to do for this challenge until I spotted my tweed stencil.  Hanging on the end of my cabinet, it looked like chevrons to me so I pulled it down and made this card.

I used Distress Inks except for the grey which is HA soft granite. I just happened to have this small piece of black and white twine, which looks a little chevron-y, and adds that last color to the mix.  I did a little surgery on a Penny Black stamp for the sentiment, placed on a punched tag with some  (gasp) sequins.  I don't often use sequins, and have very few, but these red ones seemed to bring a little party to the card.

Thank you for stopping by and have a wonderful day.


  1. So bright and happy; I love the clean colourful look.

  2. I love this! Heather has it right. Bright and happy!

  3. I love your take on the Fusion challenge. Such a cheerful CAS card!

  4. Bobby, I love this card! Great take on the inspiration! Thanks for joining us at Fusion!

  5. Great card!! Your tweed sure looks like chevrons to me as well!

  6. Hey Bobby! Great idea to use your tweed stencil for this challenge, it's perfect! You did a good job inking the different rows too, it seems like it would be difficult to do (or require masking). Thanks so much for joining the Fusion Challenge!

    1. I did mask it with post-it notes, Kelly, ala Laura Bassen. ;)

  7. So clever to use your stencil to create this card Bobby. Love the fabulous spectrum of colors. Thanks so much for playing along with us at Fusion!
