Chevron Fun with CASology

Happy Tuesday from CASology! Let's have some fun with a pattern
that just won't quit! It's so flexible and graphic that it shows up
on cards, fabric, home decor...you name it.
This week's cue card is: CHEVRON!

I used the Die-namics Chevron Stripes die to cut a mask. Starting with Twisted Citron DI and working my way inward, lifting and moving the mask, I sponged on Mustard Seed and Pumice Stone DI. The butterfly is from Hero Arts (Butterflies Coordinating Stamp and Die Set) and I added some color using my Copics.

Butterflies remind me of whimsy and dreams, so I think this sentiment is perfect. It's time to see how the other DT members used chevrons in their designs...and I'll tell you it's an awesome mix of inspiration this week!
