mold photos - part 1

Good evening everyone

This morning a visit to the opticians resulted in the need for a new pair of glasses - which I collect in about 2 weeks. A very quick way to say goodbye to a couple of hundred pounds.  Ouch!

Anyway this evening I am here to show you the photos from the Show & Tell at last night's Mold meeting.  The challenge last night was a black & white card with a geometrical design.  Seems I set quite a challenge, to judge by the comments made.

Here are the cards;

Joan fond some stamps she had bought from Caroline some time back that suited this challenge along with papers that fitted the idea as well.

Sheelagh made an easel card - so I have shown it from both angles. Certainly a good choice of geometric designs in this one including two revisited crafts - "Lace", (the e
  should have the little accent above it - but blogger doesn't seem to have the means to do that) & teabag folding - the rosette top left. 

Mair's geometric design came in the shape of the triangular front of her lovely card. A different approach to the challenge.

Lynn's clever design was produced by using an all over pattern stamped 2 ways - stamped in black on white & then stamped in white on black.  Those little flowers are very interesting as it would appear someone was shaving some sort of plastic & the pieces falling off were thin & naturally curled.  So - for Lynn - some flowers to embellish her card.

When I first caught sight of this design I thought Janet had stitched the two centre panels. But no, she had hand drawn them in the style of an iris folding diagram,  Very clever Janet.

Yvonne has 4 geometric stamped images cut down & added to black layering card for a very clean & crisp card, completed by the square topper holding the greeting.

Joanna made 2 cards - this is the first one which has a window shape with acetate & squares of black card.

This is her second card, although it was actually the first one she showed us.  A great combination of a brick style background which had been stencilled then the circles stamped with a geometric design.

Great cards ladies.  I must think up another different challenge like that.  No, I don't mean that how it sounds (or reads) because another different like that would be the same - wouldn't it?

Right I am going to go now before I tie myself in knots with words.  It's Friday again - so have a great weekend.
