I hope you are enjoying your is rainy and dull here but we aren't far from Easter break so that is keeping us going :)

This is just a short post with a card that I have made for the March challenge over at Altenew.  It was the perfect excuse to break out the (new to me) Dodecagram stamps:

I white embossed the shapes and watercoloured them with distress inks - I love the soft effect it gives combined with the geometric shapes.  In particular I was inspired by this challenge photo:

I will also make this my last entry in to Darnell's NBUS challenge as this is first time using these stamps and at Simon's Wednesday Challenge - Anything Goes.

Thanks, as always, for stopping by :)

  1. Oh very pretty shapes and lovely card design Sarah.

    Hugs diane

  2. You've blended striking and graphic design with those soft blues and yellows so beautifully, Sarah, such a wonderful take on the inspiration ... fabulous! Anita :)

  3. OOoooo! This is soooo pretty! It definitely achieves such a great stained glass-esque effect. I really like the cut of the overlay panel.

  4. Dodecagrams are new to me, and're showcased them beautifully! You've captured the 'glass' effect beautifully with your varied hues (or is it tints?) of the inks you've chosen. Soooo pretty!

  5. Oh, how pretty, Sarah! I love the geometric shape of the Dodecagrams and your coloring is really lovely! Gorgeous CAS card!

  6. These flowers are so pretty! Your coloring is so well done!

  7. A beautiful card Sarah, a fabulous design and such gorgeous coloured images!!

    Thanks so much for joining with Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge

  8. This is so pretty, Sarah! LOVE LOVE your take on the challenge!

  9. Not only is your card positively stunning and beautifully colored, Sarah, but I learned a new word! I had to go off and ask Mrs. Google (Mr. Google was fishing, if you can believe it!) what a dodieheckagram was! Thank you for that! I thought it was really interesting. And thank you so much for playing for the third time in my NBUS Challenge #4!! Hugs, Darnell

  10. Beautiful card, Sara! Love how you used the Dodecagram set! Thank you so much for joining the Altenew March challenge!
