AAA Cards #117 - Geometric

Hi everyone. It is time for a new AAA Cards challenge and it is Elaine's choice: geometrics. :)

I love the triangles in this graphic and it reminded me of a stencil that I've had for awhile but don't use very often. Seemed like a good reason to get it out for this challenge.

I started my card by stamping the sentiment in the middle of a panel of white cardstock. Then I taped the stencil down over it and randomly selected a few triangles to add a pretty aqua color down. Once I was happy with those, I removed the stencil and retaped it down slightly off center. I used a light purple to overlap the teal triangles to get a third shade too. I trimmed the sides down on my panel and adhered it to a top folding A2 white card. To add a little bit more interest, I added a few sequins around the sentiment.

Stamps: Concord and 9th - Everyday greetings
Inks: Lawnfawn - fresh lavendar, merman; MFT - Black licorice
Stencils: Heidi Swapp - triangles 2
Embellishments: Doodlebug sequins
