Trio of Triangles (Day 1 of 3)

This week I am designing for Penny Black and the theme is “triangles”.  Whether it is the shape of the card or a design element - anything goes!

Today I am focusing on one stamp image, Rock and Roll, to create three triangular cards.

The triangular card bases (2 ¾ b x 3 ¼ h) were created from Penny Black’s Mix & Match Cardstock.  White mats (2 ½ b x 3 h) were lighted distressed with Faded Jeans Ink and elevated with dimensional foam on the card bases.

Rock and Roll” was stamped on watercolor paper with black ink and heat set with clear embossing powder.  The images were then water colored and trimmed.

The “Cute as A Button” set is wonderful for embellishments.  One stamped impression gives you lots of buttons to work with.  I set the extras aside and just grab a few whenever I need them.

More details on how to enter your art in this week’s Penny Black “triangle” challenge can be seen here.

I look forward to having you visit and see the 5 triangles used in tomorrow's card!
