Happy Friday Quick Quotes readers, Louise here to host the blog.

Today is the first Friday of October which means it's time to reveal our new challenge...

Create a Geometric Design!
(Use Triangles, Circles, Rectangles, Squares, Etc.)

Today happens to be my son's 17th birthday which means that by the time you read this, he either will or won't have passed his driving test. I made him this card which has nothing to do with cars in case he doesn't pass. I used masculine colors and a geometric design based on triangles.

Before making the geometric design on the background, I started with a piece of Spring Showers 102 which I cut to the size of my card base. To add the design:
  • I used removable tape to hold the stencil in place while I applied PowderPuff Chalk Ink in Navy using my ink blending tool.
  • Next I rotated the stencil, taped it to other side and applied the ink in the same manner.

Here you can see the background of the card with the geometric triangle pattern:

I added the red triangles cut from the Secret Garden 103 paper and the sentiments from the Earth Wind Fire 500 paper. 

To make the arrow, I used my ink blending tool to apply PowderPuff Chalk Ink in Navy to a scrap of white cardstick. I cut the arrow using a metal die and then cut it in half. I applied more Navy ink directly to the edges and adhered the arrow as you can see above, 

All edges were inked with PowderPuff Chalk Ink in Navy.
