Geometric Hello


Hi everyone.  Time for a new challenge at ATCAS.  This one is being run by the very talented Harriet (Ally Cat Cards).  Harriet chose this amazing code word ...






Prize:  3 images


Lots of scope with this word!  I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut out a geometric stencil, sponging over it with soft blue for the background of my main panel.  I added more "geometric" design using a mesh stencil and embossing paste, covering just a small section.  I die-cut three layers of the hello die and glued them together. The finishing touches were some white enamel dots that I made myself using a tutorial I found on Happy Little Stampers - so easy! ... and I added a tiny rhinestone for a little sparkle and a knotted ribbon.

I hope you'll join us for this fun challenge!  As always the challenge is open for two weeks, so there's lots of time to play along.  We are thrilled to have Lyndal (Ideas and Paper) as our Guest Designer this month ... please click HERE to see her beautiful "geometric" card, along with the cards from the rest of our amazing DT.  Hope to see you in the gallery!
