Chevrons - Sort Of

This is for the Chevron Chic Challenge over at Moxie Fab World

This also fits the Creative Belli Challenge #117   using the letter "S".  I used stripes/stitches.

And sneaking it in for the JUGS challenge found here:

The closest I had to a chevron type stamp is the zig-zag stitch from the set "In Stitches" from Gina K Designs, illustrated by Tami Mayberry.

I stamped the zig-zag stitches stamp in red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet - the colors of the rainbow (all inks by Memento).  Stamped the sheep and sentiment from Gina K's Funny Farm in Memento Tuxedo Black.  Colored the sheep with Prismacolor markers and cut out.  Punched the tail of the sentiment layer with a square punch and layered on navy cs.  Added the leaves to hide a little smudge and anchored them with a long forgotten brad found deep in my stash.  Layered on the navy cardstock then onto a yellow card base.

Stamps:  Gina K  In Stitches, Funny Farm
ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black, Lady Bug, Tangelo, Dandelion, Cottage Ivy, Danube Blue, Paris Dusk and Grape Jelly
cs:  Gina K Pure Luxury White, In the Navy, Rocket Red and Dandelion
