Fusing Chevrons & Circles

Whoohoo for Wednesday!

Are we all having a good week? It's been a good week so far here in the studio, things ticking along nicely. The sunshine has made an appearance along with some very strong winds but today the Spring rain is upon us, a good reason to stay in doors and craft! 

Anyway, I've been getting a little scientific and decided to join in on the Fusion fun! Fusion is a NEW challenge blog and there are 3 ways you can join in on the challenge, use the sketch only, use the inspiration photo only or combine the sketch & inspiration. 

I decided to have a bash at fusing both the sketch and the inspiration photo. It was a bit of a challenge, but I'm super pleased with how my card turned out. You can check out the challenge HERE and the sketch & inspiration below my card...

I started out with a strip of white CS 5 cm x 14 cm and began stamping the chevron pattern first using the solid mini chevron stamp from Wonderful Washi Christmas. I had a little practice stamping it on some scrap first, so that I knew I could line it up & it would make a complete chevron line! I alternated  the lime chevrons with some circles from Background Builders: Round In Circles.

A cluster of punched stars, one stamped with the grunge circles also from Background Builders: Round In Circles and a sentiment from FONTiments - Birthday stamped vertically completed the layout nicely! 

Here's the challenge...

I really enjoyed creating a complete chevron line out of a single mini chevron, so you might just see that appear on another project or two! I'm loving the colour combination of lime & black too, can you tell?! 

That's all I have to share today, so it's back to designing for me today, some super stamp sets in the works! Oh, and a bit of swimming too as operation fit into wedding dress is well under way! 

Until tomorrow, thank you for stopping by this little part of blogland, I hope you all have a lovely day!
