Triangle Elements

Triangle Elements


I loved the card samples Debbie Hughes created in the “Watercolor Masking” class from the Online Card Class – Spring Card Camp 2020 course  which included the “Triangle Elements” die from Simon Says Stamp.  She used the die cut as a mask while water coloring her background panel and then added the painted mask to a second card.

I CASED her card using similar colors and elements.  Ironically, the lesson was on masking, and that is the only thing I did not do – lol!  (I did not have the spray adhesive, and the die cut mask curled as it got wet so I water colored my background and die cut separately.)

I had so much fun painting and splattering – two techniques I rarely do – and made a few more samples:


and here is one painted in brown and gold…


This last one was done on a scrap used to blot off my black versafine ink pad when I was getting a lot of fibers on a project I was working on.  I followed Bonnie’s lead and used my scrap instead of throwing it away!!

I used Kuretake GANSAI TAMBI Water Color paints (blue/green samples were No 54, 58, 62, 64, and 10; brown samples were No 47, 44, and 90).  The stamped greeting was from “The Wetlands” set by Gina K Designs.  The white, heat embossed greeting on the brown sample is from the “Tiny Words” stamp set from Simon Says Stamp and was cut with the Stampin’ Up “Word Window Label” punch (retired).

Thanks for checking out my card projects!

  1. These are spectacular. Love, love, love the use of the triangles and paint. Your splatter is very good. That is one thing I keep trying to master but find I am still a work in progress.


  2. Great cards and technique, Lisa. Glad you had fun painting and splattering. Hard to choose a favorite but I’m loving the black and white. Good thing you kept it.


  3. You really are getting your money’s worth out of that die! These are all so cool. I can’t believe the black one is just messing with your inkpad. Thanks for sharing these!


  4. Such wonderful looks all using the same techniques and design elements. I really like the different colour combinations and how versatile the triangle die was.


  5. These are all great cards, Lisa! Great job on having fun, creating beauty, and using up fun scraps all at the same time. I’m glad you got to do some things you don’t do on a regular basis. It’s always fun to try those again and remind yourself of the fun and beauty you can create.
