Bright Ideas!

Geometric Art Cards by Cheiron Brandon_

Hi readers!  Happy Sunday to you! I hope you’re having a great weekend! Did you make a card yesterday for World Cardmaking Day?  Today I’m pleased to welcome Wednesday Challenge Design Team member Cheiron Brandon to our store blog as a guest.  She has some very BRIGHT ideas to share with us today!

Enjoy!

Don’t throw away those gelli prints!  This card set started by taking a piece of paper that I had used on my gelli plate that turned out rather solid. I had pulled some prints through a stencil using Dina Wakley’s paints in turquoise, lime and lemon and this was the piece I used to “clean” the plate. I saved it and thought it would be a great background to use with the Mini Geometic Art Layers stencil. This stencil has so many fun shapes all in one place! I used my Ranger Mini Ink Blending Tools to dab more of the paint in blackberry, lemon, tangerine, ruby and magenta through the stencil (I used some scrap paper to make sure I was only getting paint on the parts I wanted to).  To give the piece an added layer, I sprayed White Linen Dylusions through the Mini Positive stencil

Once my piece was dry, I cut it up into squares and mounted the squares onto a very thin black mat and adhered them to my card. I love the idea of making card sets and thought the Label Love set from Altenew would be perfect to bring the set together. I love the idea of creating sets with prints I have made. It’s like being able to send the recipient a tiny piece of art.

  1. These should be hung in a gallery! I LOVE the idea of those gelli plates-I’ve watched You-Tube videos of them in action but have not gotten inky with them myself, yet. Love the layering and mixed-media-ness of these cute cards.
