Hello! My adventures to create a card for the latest Runway Inspired Challenge continue! When the latest in the challenge was presented, I was completely lost – void of ideas and sad that I wasn’t able to come up with anything..and now, 2 cards in 2 days! 😀 Well, that’s life, I suppose! 😉
The card today is inspired by several cards I’ve seen – I have no shame to admit that I am more often than not inspired by the cards created by others out there. This is also one of them (its an idea which combines techniques included in many other stamps I’ve seen, so I am not mentioning them all here..). My heartfelt thanks to all those great creators out there! 🙂
Now, coming to the card – I first got out some Memento Dew drops ink in shades of red and swiped the ink pad across a card stock panel. After this, I took the Trendy Triangles stamp from MFT and repeat-stamped it in white pigment ink. I then reversed the direction and stamped the same image in black dye ink. This gave the background a geometric look. For the embellishment, I added some dots of pearl white acrylic paint like it is splattered diagonally across the panel – I’ve just discovered what great replacement acrylic paint makes to enamel dots! Love it! 🙂
Now, I proceeded to die cut three pieces of cardstock in red, black and white using WPlus9 Timeless Tags and cut the base a little more. I stamped the sentiment in blak pigment ink and adhered the three pieces together. I then took some pink-white dyed string and after looping it a few times, adhered it between the panel and the die cuts. Finally I foam mounted the panel on a white card base.
This is my second submission to the Runway Inspired Challenge #70
Thanks for looking! 🙂
Great geometric effects!
Thank you! The fact that a geometric stamp was involved was the key, I think! 🙂
Ha, you sound like those who say that a good camera makes for a good photograph! 😛
That’s not what I meant! 😦 Its just that there wasn’t a lot of effort involved the get the shapes proper, since the stamp itself was!
Okay, okay 😛
Wow, that background pattern is so striking! Really looks like professional patterned paper! Thanks for strutting your stuff with us at Runway Inspired Challenge!
Thank you so much Taheerah! 🙂
