Geometric Design

This card was made for two challenges: the Mod Squad Challenge Blog - Geometric (have a geometric shape or shapes) and the Stamp Junkies challenge - Striptease (have an additional strip of cardstock or patterned paper). I am also entering it in the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge - Anything Goes.

I decided to make a geometric background by making crossing lines with a black marker and filling in the shapes with different colours. I used coloured pencils which I smoothed out with a blending stump dipped in mineral spirits. I was going for an ombre look in each area but I don't know if it comes across in the picture.

For the sentiment I used foiling element from the Made With Love StampTV kit. I had planned on adding foil but with so many colours in the background I liked the black sentiment better. I added a strip of yellow cardstock to my card base and wrapped some baker's twine around it, tying it with a bow. I matted both the sentiment and the background before adhering the background and popping up the sentiment with foam squares.

Materials used:
Gina K. Designs: Lemon Drop, Blue Lagoon and Wild Lilac cardstock
                          Foiling sentiment from Made With Love StampTV kit
Laurentien coloured pencils

Creative Memories oval cutting system
foam squares, blending stump, black marker and gold baker's twine from my stash
