#techniquethursday - patchwork

Remember earlier this week when I showcased a card I made for an online challenge?  Well this is how I made it.

First I stamped a lot of hexagons on some whisper white card.  I chose 4 colours and 5 different patterns.  I stamped each pattern once in each colour.  I then punched them out.  Have I mentioned how I love having stamp sets that coordinate with punches?  No?  Well I do.  I love love love it.

I then futzed around deciding how to layout the pattern as background.  Might seem easy but I forgot to do my math and realised after I'd decided to only use 4 colours that the hexagons have 6 sides and if I was going to match up each side I would end up with a colour and pattern overlap.  You might think this is a fail but I see it as an opportunity.  I decided to leave white space and incorporate that into the design.  That's winning ;-)  A few more layers and a central image and the card was done.

I've not done a colour challenge before so I'm pretty happy with how this turned out.  What do you think?
