ATCAS 45 Geometric

Geometry - the branch of mathematics concerned with the properties and relations of points, lines, surfaces, solids, and higher dimensional analogs.

Geometric - 1. of or relating to geometry, or according to its methods. 2. (of a design) characterized by or decorated with regular lines and shapes.

I am so excited to host the ATCAS 45 challenge.  I picked GEOMETRIC as our code word.  Check out the definition above and check out the DT's samples, including our very talented guest designer Lyndal's sample on the Addicted To CAS challenge blog.  For further inspiration click on the link below for graphic images:

Here is another shot of the card - you can see the Wink of Stella sparkle on the fish and sentiment better than in the first photo:

When I chose the code word I had these fish from Altenew in mind.  I love the shapes in the Ori Kami set.  I watercolored the fish with the wet on wet technique, cut them out and adhered them to the watercolored panel with foam squares.  The bubbles and sentiment both from Winnie & Walter were stamped with Hero Arts Charcoal shadow ink.  I embellished a few bubbles with sequins.

I used the colors from this week's Color Throw Down and I will submit this to that challenge:

Thanks for coming by!
