Geometric

Back to join the Less is More challenge #329 - and it is Geometric.

For my card, I have used the ink splats from Stampin' Up! Gorgeous Grunge, and the geometric element is provided by Winnie and Walter stamp called V for Chevron.

Additionally, I tried the foiling technique using a Quickie Glue Pen, and for a first try, I guess it's not too bad!  I have pre-ordered the Couture Creations Hot Foil machine - back in January - but am still waiting for it to arrive, so when I saw Lindsay Weirich demonstrate the use of the glue pen to achieve a foiled look, I thought I'd give it a try.  Definitely not an exact science (for me) so not something I'll do often, but the glimmer is a nice touch - and does accentuate the geometry at play here.

The inks I used are all Distress Oxides - they stamp beautifully!
