Chevron goodness

Addicted to CAS has a challenge to use Chevron designs and since that is one of my favorites, I had to play along.
 It was hard to decide where to start but I did pick up this little die from Reverse Confetti and it seemed just right.  I had colored the paper first with Distress Stains on watercolor paper. The sentiment is from Paper Smooches.
 On my desk I had this adorable butterfly that I had stamped, cut out and colored earlier and I thought it was just the way to go to keep my card CAS.  The butterfly stamp and matching die is from Clearly Besotted.  I just added color with Distress Stains.  My card base was plain white but I just couldn't go with that so I added some various Distress Stains to that.  The base of my card is not watercolor paper so this paper does take the stain inks a little differently.

Here is the Addicted to CAS challenge.
Plus it fits this challenge.
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)

OH, wow, I love how this turned out. Very striking. I haven't tried using Distress Inks on regular paper in this way--will give it a go. Thanks for the inspiration!
