Zig and Zag with the Sisters

Edna and the sisters are back with a fun new challenge: Z is for Zigzag! Works whether you pronounce the letter as 'zed' or 'zee', and that's just in English. :D A few years ago chevrons were a big trend for a while, although some purists even then insisted that technically the design element was really zigzags. 
I played around with a bunch of ideas, and then the other morning noticed a roll of washi tape my brother gave me a couple of years ago, and the card evolved around that: 

Picking up on one of the colours in the washi, I coloured up this crazy bird. I added a little more zigzag interest under the right side of the panel and a little brushstroke stamp for my bird to stand on. I tried to pick a good sentiment for his expression.
The sisters zigzagged in all different directions with their creations for this challenge, as did our current Queen and guest designer, CG! I bet you have something zigzaggy in your supplies, so why not come and play along? 

Supplies: white, black & Stampin' Up smoky slate cardstock, Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous Bird Crazy stamps & dies, Technique Tuesday You're Not Normal & Stamplorations Holiday Artsy stamps, Versafine onyx black, MFT black licorice & Versacolor sky grey inks, Ranger clear embossing powder, Copic & Spectrum Noir markers, Winnie & Walter Katharine dies, Scotch washi tape, foam tape

Pin It Now!

I agree with Majo, I could pick your card out if there were no names under the pics. Awesome card, perfect washi tape and that bird!! beautifully coloured.

I was so drawn to that amazing washi tape that I failed to notice the bit of black zigzags on the right side! Brilliant card! (And yes, I agree with all three above!)

I'm with the sistahs, this great card is totally you. And I think I'm a zig zag purist - to me, chevrons have to have curved lines.

Love, love, love this zigzaggy card, Lindsey! Great color on that bug-eyed long-beaked psychiatric bird! I like that! Hugs, Darnell
