Ikat with Avery Elle

I have to admit that have not been 100% sold on the look of ikat that is popping up on so many cards right now, but there is a set at Avery Elle that is quite nice.  One of the three long stamps is clearly ikat - the other two you could build up into a pattern or just use as a jagged chevron or dots.  I got the set because of the various uses and I knew it would come in handy for a fun card - and it has!!!

This card is playing along with the Avery Elle AEIOU challenge.

You Are Fabulous

Fabulous card I love the fun bright colours you used. I had to look Ikat up as I had not heard of it, you make it look appealing :) Thanks for the inspiration.

I apparently live underneath a rock, as I've never heard of "Ikat" until your post, so of course I had to look it up :) I really like the serene look of your card with those earthy colors!
