Altenew: Modern Geometry. Video

This post is also available in Українською мовою

Geometry used to be one of my favorite subjects in high school. We had a fantastic teacher and she would always explain everything so clearly and to the point, I loved her classes! No wonder I now love geometric backgrounds on cards!

I started working on this card by creating a circle mask out of thin printer paper. I masked a portion of my background panel and stamped a pattern using a tall solid triangle stamp from the Sohcahtoa stamp set. I used 3 colors of ink for my stamping – Coral Berry, Frayed Leaf and Warm Sunshine. I went with light colors as I wanted to have more of a pastel looking background.

I was going for a random pattern look and to add to the randomness I also added a few triangle outlines in gold embossing powder. I also used the same gold embossing powder from Hero Arts to heat emboss a bold thanks sentiment.

For my vintage roses and leaves I only used 2 colors of ink – a light and a medium. Instead of using a third darker color I went with gold embossing powder. I love the look I was able to create, never seen it before and so happy I got to try it.
