Sketch Saturday Week #263

Hi guys

Go me, three posts in less than 24 hours!

While I had my hexagon hat on I thought I'd have my first go at a Sketch Saturday challenge which this week features a hexagonal design.

Here is my card...

and here is Jen's sketch...

I started by flipping through some of my patterned paper pads as I was initially going to die cut the hexagons, then I looked through one of my new pads and found a page which was a hexagonal design.  So I cut out a section to use and then matched up the upper and lower background papers using sheets from the same pad.  A bit of matting and layering, stamping a sentiment and a few dew drops later and it was complete.

I'm not entirely happy with this but I think its because its quite masculine.  I prefer girlie cards but as my stock of male cards is pretty much non-existent, I'll add it to my stash :)

Materials used:
  • Design Paper: Echo Park - Sweet Day (6x6 paper pad)
  • Cardstock: Bazzill Basics Premium Cardstock (lime green)
  • Stamp: Clearly Besotted Stamps - Honeycomb (sentiment)
  • Ink: Versafine - Onyx Black
  • Dew drops from stash

As always, thanks for dropping by.

Take care and see you soon :)
