playing with triangles...

 Hello my fabulous friends!

Today I'm looking at the new Color Block Mini Triangles set from Spellbinders. I'll be honest, this one took me a while. Not because the over all design is complex... I just sat playing with different ways of arranging and weaving triangles before I settled on what I actually wanted to make. LOL!

Let's take a closer look!

Please note, while Spellbinders did send me product and ask me to create with it, my opinions remain my own.

Paper: Canson Watercolor paper, Tim Hold Kraft, glitter paper
Ink: Distress Ink, alcohol ink
Die: Spellbinders Color Block Mini Triangle
Hot Foil Plate: Spellbinders Splatter Sentiment
Foil: Spellbinders Pewter
Stencil: The Crafters Workshop- Cell Theory

I cut the triangles out of silver glitter paper, but it was a little too bright against the more distressed colors of the rest of the card, so I added a little brown alcohol ink to grunge them up a bit. I also ran a dark marker around the cut edges of the triangles. That little bit of ink on the edges helps the triangles stand out from the busy background. 

Speaking of the background... this was just a piece of scrap cardstock that I had been testing Distress Ink blends on a while ago... Keeping a pile of experimental papers can come in handy!  

I finished with a quick hot foil sentiment to help balance the design. I was a bit worried it would get lost in the background, but it stands out beautifully!

See you soon!
