|How are You? geometric pattern card|
Saturday, 18 February 2017
A little while ago I was helping my mum to clean out her garage and I came across a load of my old school books and folders. One of the things that I used to love to do was to decorate the insides of the folders by sectioning the space into squares or triangles and then colouring them in. I made this card shortly afterwards, inspired by that memory.
I used Spectrum Noir alcohol markers; BT5 using the chisel tip to create the outline and PL2, PL4, PL5, LV1 and LV3 to colour in the triangles. I happened to have some card that matched the turquoise marker colour almost perfectly, which I used for the card base. The sentiment is from an old sticker collection by American Crafts which has been in my stash for years! I added the faux stitching around the perimeter to help it stand out more. It just goes to show that you don't always need stamps, patterned papers and fancy dies to create a striking card.
