Hello! Michelle Lupton here today, with the new challenge for the month of October. This month, our theme is “Geometric”, and we are playing with our Hero Arts stamps, dies, inks, stencils, embossing powders, you name it!
For my card today, I wanted to use the theme “geometric” in a way that is not necessarily obvious. Whenever I make geometric cards, I tend to make masculine cards, but this card is definitely feminine.
I started with a square card, and drew in a diagonal cross with a pencil – this was to provide a guide so that all of my stamping would line up in a geometric fashion. I could have used my MISTI to do this, but I decided to go old school and stamped everything by hand with just my pencil lines to line me up.
After I’d done all the stamping, I added some detail to the centres of the flowers with my Versamarker (basically a felt tip marker with Versamark ink in it) and added some gold embossing powder. I then added some shimmer with my Wink of Stella clear glitter pen.
Our theme this month is
So break out those squares, circles, triangles and rectangles 🙂
There’s a prize to be won, for one lucky participant in our Geometric challenge! The Color Layering Grateful Leaves stamp set. Yay!
Thanks for visiting 🙂
