I'm So Glad We're Friends SSS Abstract Triangle Stencil

Hey guys!  I picked up this stencil from Simon Says Stamp a month or so ago, and I've been itching to put it to use!  

There is actually a background stamp in the same design which I had been eyeing, but then the stencil came out and I just had to have it.

I started by inking up the panel with four shades of Distress Ink (Evergreen Bough, Mowed Lawn, Salty Ocean, and Chipped Sapphire.

To add some interest, I cut out some of the triangles.  This was done randomly using a craft knife - I was just trying to pick a mix of large, small, and medium triangles balanced throughout the panel.  I did want to keep the 'webbing' between sections of the triangles because I think this preserves the overall design and structure of the panel while breaking it up with some white space.

The entire panel was popped up over my card base with foam tape and then I added a sentiment from my So Many Sentiments (affiliate link) set for Neat & Tangled which was embossed on black cardstock and popped up as well.

That's all for today!  Hope your week is going well!
