Flirty Triangles

As You See It Challenge #238 Just Us Girls Word Week #561

Two really awesome challenges for this “out of my box” card. The As You See It Challenge #238 entitled Aura uses the dreamy SU colors of Petal Pink, Flirty Flamingo, Basic Gray and Black.

The Just Us Girls Challenge #561 is Word Week and that word is “Triangle”.

So for the combined triangle color challenge I came up with my card using some unknown stitched triangle dies that I ink blended with Worn Lipstick and Dusty Rose (Flirty Flamingo), my second larger triangle is weatered wood and london fog for basic gray. Looks a little dark in the photo. I definitely need to invest in a real gray not that green gray color. The focal layer is backed with some basic black and all mounted on the closest thing I could find to Petal Pink. This 110 lb. cardstock is from my local Michael’s pink pack. Sentiment and die are from Sugar Pea’s Stamp of Approval stamp set.

Different for me but I do believe it may grow on me.

    1. Thanks Bonnie. Yes the colors work well together but I normally question myself at times. Thanks for the support.

    1. Thanks, Lisa, it was a nice color challenge. I just don’t have the SU colors but glad I have your comparison list.

  1. The contrast between the light and dark colours really makes a striking statement. I like the die cut ‘you’ – very stylish. I think you’ve combined the challenges well and I like your card a lot. Thanks for playing with us again at As You See It.

  2. So pretty! I love the colors and your layout is perfect for this week’s challenge! Thanks so much for sharing at JUGS!!!

  3. Now this is a fantastic way to play with triangles! You did good on your gray, when starting with London Fog. That one really isn’t quite gray, but you really did create a nice gray with it.

    1. Thanks, Golda, I know what you mean about that London Fog. It’s really a greenish tone as is the one I have from GKD. I need a real gray.

  4. This is a very striking graphic design. The contrast between the pinks and the blacks lends itself well to the geometric shapes, Gayle! Thanks for playing along at As You See It Challenges!

  5. I get pretty excited when I see something that’s a little different. Your card is playful and the layout is unique. Thank you for sharing it with us at the As You See It Challenge Blog! You’ve got me thinking about what supplies I have that I could use to make a card like yours. Thank you for the inspiration. 🙂
