Geometric shapes card

Hello friends, hope your Saturday is going well
 so far? I am popping by to share my latest card
for 'Less is More'. It's  'One layer' card time
 again and the theme is............
 
 
'Geometric shapes or patterns'


This is what I came up with, more 
watercolouring and my favourite colours yet again ;)



Watercolour,Geometric, LIM, CAS
Grrr that pink sequin does match the pink, it shines more peachy from some angles though!



I used the negative part of a die, I watercoloured
 through that. Then I added a few splashes of white and 
purple. I ran it through my Happy Cuts machine using
 the negative die again.
 
 
 This time I put the inky part edges facing the card  as
 I ran it through to define the shapes again. I placed
 it to one side for a shadow  effect. A bit of 
stamping for the sentiment and a few sequins
and job done ;)






Enjoy your weekend whatever you have planned.
I don't feel that well today, think I may have a virus
of some sort. Sorry I am late leaving you all comments.
I will try and get on with that now ;)
 
 
 
Supplies

super card, very inspired to use the negative as a stencil or opening to watercolor through it, it's fab
