Geometrics

Another one layer card for LIM for this week's challenge - this time to use geometrics!  A great theme, and I do have lots of ideas for this one, but with very limited time and supplies still constraining me, I opted to use a MFT stencil to produce these two very quick, clean and simple cards.


I used masking to keep my border straight for this card, but for the one below, I just started at the centre and worked my way out, ensuring to leave plenty  of white space.  I used Distress Inks and a finger dauber to apply my ink.


Card recipes:  

Stencil:  MFT Abstract
Ink:  Distress Inks - #1 - Carved Pumpkin, Abandoned Coral, Festive Berries. #2 Cracked Pistachio, Salty Ocean and Seedless Preserves
Sentiments:  by Stampin' Up! - Botanicals for You, Hello

  1. Great cards - especially with limited supplies. I should use my stencils! I really like the font of the "just for you" I'm so glad I added it to my collection.

  3. These look great, so eye catching and bold! I've got a stencil similar to that one and now I'm thinking I should use it more. Thanks for the inspiration :)

  4. Two terrific cards there Ann. You've really shown how different colours can give that stencil a completely different look. Love the vibrancy of the first card, but the beautifully subtle blending on the second has really caught my eye!
    So glad you shared these with us at Less is More.
