Retro Chevrons

Honestly, the picture of this 2 pad spread doesn't do it justice! It's striking in person with the contrast of Very Vanilla and Basic Black. The designer paper really makes an impact, don't you think?  I saw this fold somewhere, don't recall where, but I fell in love with the looks and simplicity of it.  I cut 8 strips 1 1/2" x 4" and folded the tips in opposite directions. I adhered them next to one another to create the chevrons.  I create another on the right side to resemble an arrow.  I'm loving the new 'grunge look' that's so popular right now. It's shameless can't possibly get it wrong!  So, are you a grunge stamping fan?
