Just Add Ink #212: Just Add Colour!

Hi!

Where on earth did that week go?  I am so out of whack with the school holidays.  I love the holidays, as it's a great chance for our family to relax and recharge the batteries, which is probably why some of my 'real life' gets forgotten!  Anyway, enough of my babbling, it's time for the latest JAI Challenge.

This week Delys has challenged us with this gorgeous colour combination.


There are so many possibilities with these colours!  You could easily make either a masculine or feminine card.  I chose the latter.


I have had the Hexagon Thinlit since it came out but hadn't used it yet.  I had had the idea in my head to use it as I have in this card, but the 'right' card hadn't come along yet.  This was the perfect time!  I basically cut one out and then trimmed the straight bits off the side.  In some places I trimmed some more off so that it wasn't still a rectangular shape.  I then adhered some of the popped out hexagons over the solid hexagons for a little added detail.  I love how it turned out, exactly as I'd imagined.


I didn't have room left for a sentiment on the front.  I made it for my niece who turned 18 recently.  I had visions of trying to stamp an 18 on the bottom solid hexagon, but it just didn't look right, so I left it off.


As always, the inside was decorated to match the outside.

I hope you can play along with us this week at Just Add Ink.  See you there!

Bye for now,

Tina

  3. I love the treatment you have given the Hexagon Hive framelit on this card Tina - genius!! It works wonderfully with the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set and gives the Butterflies a place to land!
