Triangle Challenge! #32 and Bartholomew the Bard.

Hi everyone and I hope you are having a great Saturday. It's time again for the Kraftin' Kimmie Challenge, it's week 32, if you can believe it. This week, it's my turn to host it and I decided I would like us to all use triangles on our cards. Any kind of triangle you like, be it obtuse, equilateral, scalene acute, isosceles, or whatever. (Who said I didn't learn anything in Geometry class). You can make your own triangles with your papers like I did, or use whatever you like as long as you have triangles on your card. For inspiration, make sure you check out Kraftin' Kimmie's Challenge Blog and see what the Krafty Girls have done.

Now to the card. I used some DCWV Natural Stack with foil, I just love it, all earthy tones with some shiny copper foil in it. I used Chocolate Chip for the card base and put a square of More Mustard on it, then I made triangles of the patterned paper, cutting them to fit nicely on the square. I took my colours from the papers and coloured Bartholomew the Bard with greys, browns and mustard shades from my Copics. (One was the one you gave me, Andrea, so thank you again!) I cut him out using my new Mega Classic Scalloped Ovals. Phew, what a mouthful!! I then sponged around the scallops with Memento Cantaloupe Ink. I love that colour!! I pop dotted the image, then I used the Kraftin' Kimmie Sentiment, 'Sending You a Note', heat embossing it with Copper Embossing Powder. I put a couple of tiny copper brads on the ends of it, then I used some copper ribbon across the middle.

Now, since I used Bartholomew for my card, that is what you will win, if you are randomly chosen from the entrants. The accompanying stamp is ' Let's Make Beautiful Music Together', so you will win that too. The one I used actually comes with Marie Antoinette, but I like it with Bart too, since he's playing some notes.

Don't forget to check out the creations on Krafty Kimmie's Challenge Blog and then get your mojo working and show us whatcha got.
