Guest Artist: Neha Bhatt (I Love Math Challenge #3)

Hi everyone! :o)

I hope you're all doing great! There are still ten more days to join the third I Love Math Challenge. :o)

I am very honored to host very talented Guest Artist today, Neha Bhatt.

Neha is amazing artist and super friendly person from India, owner of Periwinkle Creations.

I'm so happy we made friends. Neha and I are in the same Design Team at Jane's Doodles. Her creations are so inspiring! Neha supports my challenge from it's beginning with her amazing creations. I was overwhelmed when she accepted my invitation to join me in this challenge and also for challenges yet to come. Next year Neha will be joining I Love Math Challenge as a Designer Collaborator, which means you will see her creations in each challenge. Wooohooo!!! :o)

And now to Neha's inspiration card...

Here is what Neha said:
"Hey Friends,
Here I am again with a card for Milka’s awesome I Love Math Challenge # 3.  She is a super cool person and  I love her math challenges. It is a great way to give a workout to our creative brain!
This time, the math part is ‘triangle’. So you have to create a birthday card which has to be CAS and have to have Triangle shape as focal point or very dominating. 
Birthday and triangle ...easy I said...:) I used hand cut birthday hat as my focal point which fits the bill. I coloured it using hand torn paper stripe and distress inks. I also incorporated triangles in form of banners and background stamping. I cut the white panel and sentiment stripe also at an angle to enhance the triangle, geometric feel. All such small details are very useful to set the tone of your card and to make the focal point stronger.  To make the birthday hat more prominent – I added the banners behind it and cut the panel little shy than hat’s top which will give illusion of hat being huge! Does it do that?
I had fun designing for this challenge. I hope you aso will give it a try. Thanks a lot Milka for having me as guest DT. Love you. Hugs!"

And here is GORGEOUS Neha's card! LOVE it sooooo much!!! :o)

When Neha sent me photo of the card my jaw dropped. STUNNING!!! Awesome color combination, gorgeous color tones, so many details but still CAS design and so many different triangles! LOVE LOVE LOVE!!! :o) And yes, hat looks huge. :o)

Here is a close up photo of Neha's card.

Thank you so much Neha for joining the challenge and inspiration! I'm so happy you'll be joining me through the next year. :o)

Now it's your turn...

Create something using the inspiration board (you must meet all criteria shown on inspiration board) and link up your project below.

Design: Clean and Simple (CAS)
Definition from CAS(E) this Sketch:
1. Usually only one layer but can include a simple layer or two. 
2. A lot of open space sometimes called "white space" can include subtle color, texture or pattern. 
3. Only one focal point. Embellishments should only support not dominate your card. (Exception to this rule is that you've made the focal point an embellishment and not an image.)
4. Usually no embellishments but can include something minimal. (1 or 2 embellishments) 
5. Minimal color palette. (up to 3 colors in general)
6. Simple, uncluttered, quick and easy to create.

Theme: Birthday
Add a sentiment to your card, create triangle shaped balloons, create birthday party scrapbook page... possibilities are endless, but remember to keep it CAS.

Geometric shape: Triangle
triangle is a 3-sided polygon. Every triangle has three sides and three angles.
Use a triangle or triangles on your creation. Triangles must be in a focal point of your work.
Triangle shaped card is welcome, but is not a focal point. If you decide to go with triangle shaped card, be sure to include triangles on your card.
Exception: photography on a scrapbook page can be in a focal point.
