Hey There!

Chevrons and Woodgrain
I was inspired by the Retro Sketch this week Challenge #110
for the theme of the card and cascolours and sketches Challenge #70
for the colour theme of Black and Grey's
When I looked at the sketch my eye went from the bottom left up to the top so I had the idea to use chevrons and as a result of this and the challenge colours I made a Masculine card.

I used different colours of grey inks and a woodgrain stamp from Waltzingmouse to add interest and texture to the card.
I stamped and die cut the sentiment, both from Clearly Besotted Stamps.
I popped on foam pads to the woodgrain stamping as I felt the chevrons worked better on another lower layer behind.
I popped on some black and grey dots and black/white twine to finish off the card.
I loved the way the chevrons took your eye from the bottom all the way up and then the sentiment of Hey There! was waiting for you at the top.
