Hexagons - 2 ways.

Hi there!

There's a hexagon challenge going on at Crazy for CAS!

I made 2 cards featuring hexagons.

The first one I would say my more familiar style. I have cut the (white) background with my Silhouette, and colored the cut out parts with Promarkers, using the colors from Cas colours and sketches . Adding a stamped sentiment.



For the second card I used the left over background from the first card as a mask. Sponged with distress inks and added  3 stamped flowers and a sentiment in Afrikaans.




                                          




Thanks for looking!

Have a great day!

Two totally different feels to the card...love the striking colors in the first and the subtleness of the second.

Oh cool! Can't decide which I like more; both are very cool! Excellent sponging. Love those blues and reds against that gray too. Great cards, Hannelie. Love them. Bev

Ooh, such clever use of the same background, Hannelie ... love the first, graphic one with the bold colours ... the second is so pretty, with the soft inking and lovely lavender! Anita :)

Twee sulke uiteenlopende kaatjies en albei perfek, vrou!! Ek's mal oor die helder kleure op die eerste een en die blommetjies op die tweede een is pragtig!! Hexagons bly maar lekker om mee te werk - en ek gebruik dit so min!!
Ek het nou deur al 16 jou posts gewerk wat ek gemis het toe ek weg was en het dit vreeslik geniet!! Jou werk is 'n inspirasie vir so baie van ons!! ...en ek dink die silhouette mense is jou innig dankbaar vir die goeie advertensie wat jy vir hul produk is!!
(en nou wil ons April Addo toe gaan en daar gaan my droom van 'n silhouette as deposito vir 'n vakansietjie!!)
Baie groete hier uit George en nou moet ek gou my CTS kaartjie post en dan's dit slaaptyd!!

The way you've opened up some of the hexagons is a fun interesting touch! You did a wonderful job with our challenge colors from CAS - Colours and Sketches. Thanks for joining in our challenge! The sponged card shows another great look.

P.S. The way you have your comment form set up doesn't allow me to enter my blog address so I hope you don't mind me putting it here: http://thinkingofinking.blogs.splitcoaststampers.com

Graphically gorgeous and softly sensational! Two such different sytles so beautifully put to paper once again! Perfectly placed sentiment, beautiful sponging and gorgeous vibrant colors!

Amazing talent!
