Cool Cat and Looking For Mr. Right Triangles by Jean Okimoto

P1070503

Cool Cat poses among a trio of Looking For Mr. Right Triangles on an any-occasion card today.  The Kaleidacolor-ed background anchors the stamped triangle diecuts and gem stickers add a bright touch.    Hi there - Jean Okimoto here with another triangle card - I  love these new stamps and coordinating dies from the 2018 Holiday Happenings Collection...hope you do too!

Here's an easy way to create a background in about a minute -

P1070496

Press Dessert Heat Kaleidacolor onto an acrylic block - keep the colors separated as though the inkpad is in storage.  Quickly paint watercolor paper with wide streaks of each color.  Let the colors blend randomly where they overlap - don't try to paint beautiful bands of color.  Set it aside to dry.

Cut it with the 2-¾" x 4" Wrapped Stitch Rectangle die.

Stamp the smoother side of watercolor paper with the big solid triangle from the Looking for Mr. Right Triangle set three times.   I've used VersaFine Clair Glamorous and Charming Pink and VersaFine Habanero.  Don't forget to clean - and dry - the stamp when switching colors.  Dry the inks.

Stamp them with the small lined triangles and VersaFine Clair Nocturne.  Dry the ink.  Cut them with the 1-¾" die from the coordinating set.

Cut Cool Cat from charcoal glittered paper.  

Attach the diecuts to a dark gray A-2 card.  Add pale orange gem stickers.

Love the watercolor effect very much and the layout - lovely TFS

Wonderful color scheme, Jean! Love the glittery cat, too. Thank you!

Thanks Gail - try this layout in winter pastels with a felt snowman!

Thanks Jacky! Here's another idea...Kraft card, background of mixed greens and your Poppystamps Whittle Rudolph with a bright red nose.
