This is my second From The Ashes card, where I use only stuff out on my desk, which means it's mostly cast-offs from other projects that I couldn't bear to throw away. My first From The Ashes card is here, and here's #2:
This one is for three (yes, THREE) challenges:
Moxie Fab World: Happy for Hexagons
Operation Write Home Midweek Throwdown Color challenge: Teal or Turquoise
Colour Me challenge:
Because of all that blah blah blah, here's the card again so I can explain:
First I cut the hexagon background from a piece of Hero Arts Shallows paper that was laying next to my paper cutter. Then I cut it again from pieces of red, grey, black and white so I had a few hexagons of each of the colors. I stuck the pool frame to the white base, fit in the not-pool colors, then filled the rest with pool pieces. I then went around with my glue and Pick-Me-Up tool and applied glue under each piece.
The sentiment is from a new Lil' Inker set (linked below) that I had to have, even though I rarely make wedding or engagement cards. I think it's the font that sold me.
Now if you'll excuse me, I need to go link this baby to three challenges. Then I might stamp again. :)
Thanks for stopping by!
