DV #140 No Squares Allowed

Our challenge at Dream Valley is No Squares Allowed. I have to admit I veer towards the square card as I am a fiend for symmetry. So it’s nice to do something other than the ‘norm’ for me.

We are sponsored by the fabulous Live and Love Crafts.

DV 140 No Squares Allowed

My card is all made from scratch including the base, which was created with a Tonic die called Bowscale. I love the versatility of being able to cut any size I like, and the fact that I can make them square or rectangular depending on my mood.

The tree design is a Sweet Poppy stencil called Wishing Tree. I first inked through the stencil with a combination of DIs and after the ink dried I spread clear texture paste through, before it was able to dry I covered it in clear micro beads. The little sentiment is from a diecut pad from Craftwork Cards and edged in one of the colours I used through the stencil.
