One week goes by so quickly that it's again time to make CAS cards for Less Is More! This time our theme is "Geometric". There's many possibilities to go with it and our DT and talented guest designer Julie are showing you fantastic samples in the challenge blog HERE and in their personal blogs as well. We are very happy to be sponsored by Uniko. Play along following our guidelines and you could be a monthly winner!
Card 1 : Aurinkoa Päivääsi
Entering this card to following challenges:
My first card is a one layer with stamped flower image (Woodware) and hand-drawn border. I've colored the image with Copics. I left the vase unshaded and just shaded the flowers -I think this made them pop nicely when the vase is just "blocks of color". I love love love this stamp! I hadn't been coloring on this specific blending card for a while and it was acting up on me a bit... I used the good old "cover it all with Wink Of Stella"-trick to make the blending look flawless after I was all done with Copics. The shimmer really hides your small mistakes nicely... And the shimmer and shine look very pretty IRL! "Aurinkoa Päivääsi" is Finnish language and translates to something like "Sunshine to your day". This must be one of my personal favorites from the cards I've made lately, the stamp is so gorgeous and fun and fast to color in. Isn't it great when you make something that comes together fast and still has quite a lot of impact!
Card 2 Happy Birthday
My second geometric card is made with a small circle stamp (stamped three times to form a short of triangle) and a Hero Arts sentiment die + stamp. I did the hidden die cut technique which is quite new to me but I'm already rather obsessed with it... Get ready seeing a lot more of this technique in the future! I die cut the sentiment 5 times so it's very sturdy. The layers are from black card, that helped to get the sentiment pop from the card more.
I really enjoyed making my geometric cards and now I can't wait to see what you will create! Happy crafting!
