Greetings! I love geometric shapes. I love using geometric dies, stencils…I love art that has beautiful, precise geometry like Frank Lloyd Wright’s stained glass windows and architecture. Interesting considering I prefer to make messy art myself. Anyway, I was so excited when I first saw the Mid-Century Angles stencil from A Colorful Life Designs. It’s really neat and clean, but there’s a lot of interesting things happening on that one stencil. Check out what I’ve made with it.

I placed my cardstock onto my Brutus Monroe Sticky Mat, and placed the stencil on top. Then it was just a matter of simple ink blending….no masking required. I wanted the colors to bleed into each other, so I was sure to overlap them. I used Memento Inks in Dandelion and Rose Bud, plus Distress Inks in Salvaged Patina, Wilted Violet, Kitsch Flamingo, Peacock Feathers, Twisted Citron, Saltwater Taffy and Mustard Seed. I went around the edges of my card base with several of these colors, making sure that I didn’t put the same color next to where it was on the stenciled panel.
For my sentiment, I used the Buzzworthy Sentiments from The Greetery. I inked the words with VersaFine Clair Inks in Warm Breeze and Purple Delight. I also added a few clear, iridescent sequins for a little bit of shine.
When I first saw this stencil, I immediately imagined it in shades of orange, olive green, and mustard…very 70’s. And I know I will ink it up that way soon, but I really wanted to try it with a beautiful rainbow of colors, and I am so glad I did. This stencil has so much impact!
