Unstampabelles Challenge#33 - Geometric Shapes

Hello Peeps!
Welcome to my blog and an especial welcome to all the new followers I have picked up lately. Today I am sharing the card I have made for Unstampabelles Challenge #33 - Geometric Shapes. 

This challenge is being sponsored by Andrea at Annabelle Stamps. 

The TWIST for this month for this challenge is to use at least three shapes on your paper project - not a very hard twist but you need to tell us what they are!  Remember, with this challenge blog you cannot use stamps of any kind. So what did I do?

Firstly I put some drops of TH Distress ink refills onto my silicon cooking craft sheet, sprayed them with some water from a mister bottle and proceded to swipe through some scrap pieces of SU Whisper White card.  

I then used the top of a bottle of Zest and some TH Black Soot ink to create a few circles on one of the pieces; it doesn't really show in today's project but you will see it again! 

I then used the top of my TH ink pad to create some squares. 

I cut two of these out.

I diecut out the Dienamics MFT Framed Love Birds from some sparkly black card.  This die comes with leaves and birds separately if you want them, so I die cut some leaves from a scrap of green and the birds from a scrap of red. I forgot to put the cards concerned onto a sticky background first, so had to hand glue them all on!

I used another die I have from TCW saying 'Today' to die cut this from the black card. Same deal - forgot again - duh! I put a piece of the swiped card behind the die chosing a clear bit for the sky and a muddier bit for the bottom part.  I cut this piece unevenly across the top to represent hills it the background.

After mounting all this on the red card _ SU Real Red - I placed my two squares on an angle behind the rectangle I had created and onto black folded card.  This also gave me four triangles! I added some red circle by adding lots of Annabelle's lovely sprinkles!

The bottom of the card has a piece of SU Real Red die cut with a screen from Memory Box called Piestra Tile.  This has circles and crosses and different shapes! So, there you have it - my attempt at being Geometric!!

I will enter this in the following challenges:
Challenges 4 Everyone: Anything Goes
Fashionable Stamping Challenges: Anything Goes - cannot enter this as it needs stamping apparently!
Pile It On: Bold and Bright! Spring comes when the bird chorus is heard again and the bare trees begin to grow leaves.

Susan, I just love how you made your background. I've always wanted to try this...but somehow always forget about the technique. Great card!
