PTI Make It Monday #154 (Adding Texture on a OLC), Moxie Fab World 12/2 (Happy For Hexagons), One Layer Simplicity #3 (Just Add Water)

Using angular shapes in an ordered way has me feeling happy … and pampers to my neat freak tendencies.  However, I also have a bit of a maverick streak, so using such shapes in an unstrucured way also has me feeling happy (if a little untidy) … and that’s what I did with this card …

PTI MIM 154, MFW 12-2, OLS 3

I’m joining in at Papertrey’s Make It Monday, where Erin has done a great video giving tips on adding texture to one layer cards without adding bulk.  I’m also playing at One Layer Simplicity, where Karen’s the host and has challenged us to just add water, and my inspiration for the images came from Moxie Fab World‘s Hexagons: Happy for Hexagons Challenge.

I did the background first, using diluted distress ink and a water brush to add splatter to the card base.  I then stamped the Papertrey Sketched Shapes hexagons in unruly lines, aiming to create a sense of movement, almost as though they were in danger of toppling over.  The solid parts of the darkest hexagons were treated with Wink of Stella and covered with Glossy Accents, and the Papertrey sentiment was stamped and clear heat embossed.  Yes, I know … the photo doesn’t show all the glisten and shine … if you click on it, there’s more!

I’m off to wander in an inspiration-seeking-manner through the blogosphere.  Thanks so much for coming by, your visits and comments are always a joy!  Anita 🙂

    I love your combination of hexies and misting. You are brave to mist–I bought a bunch of colors, but am not quite brave enough to spray. The look of those tumbling hexagons is perfect.

    Successful movement, eye-catching colours, pretty splatters (I tried splatters – can you believe even those eclipse my abilities!), cool patterns…your ‘walk on the wild side’ maverick move makes for one stunning card! LOVE this!! Hugs~c
