Inspired by Mondrian

Before I went on holiday I discovered a website (https://www.aliexpress.com/) which sells very cheap unbranded metal dies from China with free postage - the only catch is that delivery can take a while! So I'm very sceptical about internet shopping in general and part of me did not believe I would ever receive my orders which is why I only spent about 8 pounds....

Imagine my surprise when I got back from holiday to find 4 small packages in the post from China! This is what I made with one of the dies...



As soon as I saw this die it made me think of paintings by the artist Piet Mondrian, I cut the shape in 4 colours; black, red, yellow and blue, then pieced some red, yellow and blue shapes into the black frame. The greeting die is from The Range.

I'm entering this card into the challenges at:
