It's Hip to be Square

Good morning,

I have another new DT project for you today, for the new challenge at Cardz 4 Guyz and this week Jane has chosen the theme


Now this can be interpreted any way you wish - simply a square card, or using squares on a card - as long as it has squares somewhere, it's good. Here's what I decided on for my DT inspiration ...

Well, I don't do anything by halves - this reminds me of those puzzles where you have to count 'how many of something!' Lol.

I started out with a piece of white cardstock and attached my Claritystamp 'Abstract Squares' stencil with some masking tape. Using my inkdusters, I brushed some Dried Marigold and Peacock Feathers distress ink through the stencil - producing lots of little squares (and rectangles) for my background.

Next I added three coloured squares cut from some scraps and placed them behind the piece of vellum which I stamped the word 'Remember' from one of my Claritystamp Wordchains in archival ink, then fastened it to the background using four eyelets.

I also wrapped a piece of turquoise twine around before I secured it to my turquoise mat, adding a couple of little brass keys as an extra embellishment.

Hope you can join us with your own 'Square' projects.
Hugz, Jan xx
