Another card for this week's OLW challenge, hosted by Heather, to use squares. This card was inspired by the grade-school technique of pasting squares of tissue paper onto your page (see inspiration photo below). I masked the big triangle and the sentiment strip across the centre before stamping the overlapping squares (unfortunately, my square stamp has rounded corners) in multiple colours. I then removed the masks, ran it through the Cuttlebug with the sentiment strip covered to ensure no embossing there and finally scored a border on the top and bottom of the sentiment strip.
This card was inspired by this photo on my Inspiration Board on Pinterest:
PS - thank you all for thinking I'm so awesomely patient and talented to stamp every little square perfectly lined up on yesterday's card. I wish I was that awesome. I obviously did not explain myself very well (except to Darnell, whose mind must work like mine (I'm so sorry, Darnell! lol!)).
Here's a photo that I hope shows the process
1) drew the pencil line
2) stamped the first row of squares (shown in black)
3) stamped the second row of squares (shown in turquoise), and erased the pencil line
4) coloured the little squares created by stamping the bigger squares (not shown).
They say a picture is worth a thousand words, so hopefully this makes my 'secret process' a little clearer!
PPS - extra special thanks to Shirley who crowned me Queen of "geometric shapes with stained glass colours" - I'm proud to claim that title! (It's certainly nice to be Queen of SOMETHING! lol!)
