Our theme for the month of October is geometric, so I went through my stash of Hero Arts background stamps, and this one jumped into my hands:
I stamped the background onto some Tim Holtz watercolor cardstock (mainly because my first thought was to paint some Distress Inks over it, but I changed my mind). I stamped the background in Versamark and then heat embossed with white embossing powder. I left a blank area in the middle of the stamp, so that I would have space to stamp my sentiment, using the Thanks stamp & cut set, with Intense Black ink, also from Hero Arts. I used four Distress Inks in greens and blues to fade into the centre.
I wanted to emphasize the geometric pattern in the background, so I cut some very thin pieces of silver glitter paper, and adhered them to match some of the lines in the background. I added some sequins as the finishing touch, just to make it slightly asymmetrical.
