Dottie goes Geometric!

That is the Sunday challenge today on Dottie's World. The lovely Adele set the challenge this week, and by gum it's a good one!

When I first told my son Jack that I was on the Dottie Design Team, he asked loads of questions about what I needed to do. You can now blame Jack for this week's challenge as this was all his idea...but I have stretched it a little.

Jack suggested that I made a card using triangles but I am going to open up the possibilities and ask you to make creations with bold geometric shapes. This could simply be part of some patterned papers or a fancy shaped card...the choice is yours BUT I want to see some geometric shapes as a main part of your work....no cheating and telling me the brad is a circle!

Well I went geometric mad!! OK so my card does not have Dottie on it, but it does have plenty of dots LOL The Charmed download in this case is the Page Corner Cats image inside the card, these two adorable cats have lots of geometric shapes on them so perfect for this challenge.





This card is going to appear as a class very soon on the main Charmed Cards & Crafts website so keep your eyes peeled.

Brilliant! I've been thinking of doing one of these kind off cards so I can't wait to see your class.

Hi Karen, you asked about the centre feature on my card. It's actually one of the Hallowhimsy stickers stuck onto black card, cut out then mounted onto the card with foam pads.I've just remembered, you asked about the dripping blood on my other halloween card and I forgot to reply. It was just red card cut out, sprayed with spray mount then a sprinkling of red gletter and mounted with foam pads.
Love Lou xx
