"Jack suggested that I made a card using triangles but I am going to open up the possibilites and ask you to make creations with bold geometric shapes. This could simply be part of some patterned papers or a fancy shaped card...the choice is yours BUT I want to see some geometric shapes as a main part of your work....no cheating and telling me the brad is a circle!"
I have used red and green card stock and a piece of gold mirror card. I have made one of these cards before so i used that as a template. the green card i cut into triangles then used the cuttlebug embossing folder (christmas baubles) I matted and layered the triangles. The main image is from the christmas dottie and george downloads this is one that was already coloured, i have added some snow writter and glimmer dust on the fur trim to give it a little more dimension. I then went mooching through all my christmas stamps and used these to decorate the other sides of the card with bit of ribbon from my scraps box.

I was very busy yesterday as i went to the Great Northern papercraft extraviganser. for the first time this year they ran a breakfast workshop. I chose Blonde moments as i love Dyans classes. we did a tag class using blonde moments pigment powders. It was run by Dyan Reaverly and her lovely assistant Kirsty Wiseman. (pictured bellow)
Here is my tag book using everything Blonde moments can be purchased from Art from the heart.

I have had to put this onto my blog really early as i'm going to the great northern papercrafts extravaganser today and it takes 2 hours to get their. so i wont be back until late.
The image is from George at work which i coloured with my prisma pencils and blended with sansador i then cut him out and decoupaged him to give him a little depth. i added 2 eylets and threaded 3 pieces of wire twine through (this is my recycled bit as the twine was used to wrap my parcel up that i received from art from the heart when they sent me some blog candy). I then matted and layered the image onto scraps from my ever increasing pile of paper. as you have guessed it is Blonde moments "citrus fling" papers. (I love these papers). i then added my 3 flower brads.
I loved doing this challenge. i think my darling hubby has got used to me crafting whilst delivering parcels in his van. (i now have a mobile craft room)(how good is that)
ooohhh i cant wait till next weeks challenge.........
I DO MISS HER.........
