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?
