Geometric Shapes

Hi Everyone,

I am sure you guessed I would play with this weeks Less is More challenge - its geometric shapes on a one layer card - two of my favorites!!!!


Of course I had to pull out my favorite iStencil - this time I inked it up in reddish tones and made a dark grey background. I also masked the periphery and only concentrated on the "ball" or lets call it a circle, since we want to be geometric ;)

Click on the picture and it will get you to the store :)

I die cut the "birthday" - inlaid, of course to stick with one layer. Stamped the tiny happy on the side and added an enamel dot. 


I am also linking up with the current Muse challenge, where the talented and creative Anita from Neet and Crafty made a wonderful card for us to CASE.

Here is her card:

So, if you are wondering how this relates - well, I stuck with the orangey/red color scheme, the inlaid die-cutting and the asymmetric centering of the image - only mine is  reversed.

And linking up with:
Seize the Birthday - anything birthday
Snippets Playground  - use a snippet (the die cut)
AAA challenge - anything goes

Fabulous! This is so creative and dimensional, you wouldn't think "OLC" when you first look at it. Love it - great job!

Suchi said...

You can make wonders out of the istencil! We call it "Paisa wasooool" in India when something is used up to its full strength! You have made superb use of it Cornelia! :)

Yes I will echo Rahmat's comments...you are the master, with this stencil. You make it so 3D, love the colours and blending and all set off fabulously with the black inlaid die sentiment and the tiny happy x Wow and so very striking x

Oh wow Cornelia - what a stunner! I do love that stencil, it works so well every time - and the inlaid word is just such a great extra as well.

Great to see you in the Playground.
