Geometric Sending Smiles

Why is the summer going by so quickly!!!??
I have had some time off and stepped away from social media, but I'm back now and ready to play.  

So meet today's card.
I used this fun Geo Framework stencil from A Colorful Life Designs to create my card.
Lots of geometric shapes.

So here's what I did to create my card.
  • I cut a piece of white cardstock and laid it onto my Make Art Station and positioned the Geo Framework stencil over that.
  • I inked it up in a random way with some Distress Oxide inks...Cracked Pistachio, Peacock Feathers and Blueprint Sketch, moving the stencil around and inking until the whole panel was covered.
  • Next, I die cut the 'Sending Smiles' sentiment from the center of the stenciled panel.
  • I cut the word shadow from some white cardstock next and glued them together.
  • I splattered using my black Posca pen, then glued it onto a piece of white cardstock, then onto an A2 size card base.
  • I popped the sentiment over the card panel.

Here is the stencil I used:

I love the geometrics in those pretty colours Karen and the words cut from the piece and a white shadow place behind the words really makes them stand out..love the splatters in the background too. x
