Chevron Background Paper

I thought it would be fun to create some of the ever popular chevron paper. 

Products Used:

Cardstock: Whisper White, Tempting Turquoise, Real Red, Daffodil Delight
Ink- Real Red, Tempting Turquoise, Daffodil Delight, Basic Black
Stamp Set- Feeling Sentimental, Oh Hello!
Accessories- Chevron Embossing Folder

The first card  is made with the Tempting Turquiose ink, I made the ferris wheel two tone by stamping it in the  tempting  turquoise ink first then right into the black and then directly onto the whisper white cardstock.

This first one is with the Daffodil Delight ink

The telephone booth is made in the Real Red ink with the "Oh Hello" salutation

Here's the How to's to make the chevron paper

To achieve the chevron paper start with your Big Shot and the Chevron embossing folder and  a piece of cardstock,  I used the Whisper White

Take out your daffodil delight ink and your sponge brayer

start rolling the ink lightly across the paper as you see in the photo. Roll the ink until you get the desired shade.
