ArtyGirlz Triangles Challenge
The challenge at ArtyGirlz this week is to use triangles on your project. I made this card using the Edwin's Grandpa stamp by Magnolia and Basic Grey papers. I have paper pieced his tie and trousers and the rest of him has been coloured with Prismacolours and Sansador. He is stood on an orange triangle and there are also some triangles on the backing paper - hope this counts!. The sentiment is my new Hero Arts stamp which I got yesterday.
