Chevron Birthday CAS

 Good Evening Crafters!

Well today I wanted to show you one of new "toys" that I brought at Ally Pally and Have started practising with!  Now - be gentle with me - this is my first time stencilling so I need a lot of practice at blending etc, but I did have fun - and the card only took me 10 minutes to make, perfect for those last minute cards when you forgot a birthday - oops!!

I think I'm a bit late to the party on chevrons - I've been admiring them on cards for the last 12 months and finally invested in something with them on!!

The stencilling paints I used are from BJ Crafts - see the links below.  I watched a tutorial at Ally Pally and thought they were a fab idea, so look forward to playing with these and no doubt investing in a lot more colours :)

Doesn't the sheen on them look beautiful in the light :D

Products Used:
Stencil - Stamposaurus Stencils (I like the fact that you get the cut out parts behind the stencil as well!  Great idea!)  I can't find the stencils online which is a shame, but I have linked to the company.
Paints - Imagination Crafts "Turquoise Satin" and "Blush Satin"
Sentiment - Inkadinkado "Stylish Sentiments" Rubber Stamp
Ink - Memento "Tuxedo Black"
