UC - Geometric Take Two ....

.... Morning!  Here's another in my series of scheduled posts.  It's time to remind you about our current challenge over at Uniko.  We want to see GEOMETRIC patterns with the OPTION OF CIRCLES, SQUARES OR TRIANGLES.  My first card was circles, so this time I decided to go for squares:

Stamps: Uniko - Background Builders Squared, All Occasion Sentiments #1
Inks: Versafine - Onyx Black; Kaleidacolor - Luau
Accessories: White Lustre Card; Stampin' Up! Card - Melon Mambo

I used my MISTI to make this card.  I lined up the stamp in the middle, making sure it was straight and using grid paper and a ruler was able to space out the stamped image evenly.  I've put a video link at the bottom of this post showing how to create background patterns.  I kept this really simple by adding a bold sentiment in black - I didn't want to hide the background!!  On the inside I cut a mat layer of pink card and added some more squares to the white panel - I used my MISTI to position the stamps correctly.

Fabulous colours and perfect stamping. Every time I see a card made with the misti I go to buy one and then flake at the cost, but I'm so impressed with the results - maybe this time?
