Runway inspired #91

So, it's been a little while since I got inky, and I am in one of my slumps  as a result. I decided to try and get the juices flowing by trying my hand at the current Runway Inspired challenge.

So I sat down yesterday and made this card:

For this card I used the MFT abstract cover up die with some PTI colored cardstock in limeade ice and hawaiian shores.The sentiment is from the new LLD Soda pop stamp set. I love how clean it is.

Now, where I don't HATE this one,  I'm not sure I love it. I have recently been VERY inspired by my dear friend Ardyth who in my opinion is the Queen of CAS. So looking at this, it just seemed a bit busy for what I was going for.  I do like parts of it, but I couldn't decide so I went to "the girls" for their opinions. Ardyth threw some ideas at me and then challenged me to make another card.  She also decided to make one too, so here we are.

This is my second attempt at this inspiration photo:

(Please excuse the poor photo, it's late and I have terrible lighting in my Condo.)

I must admit I personally like this one  more. Now, its not as CAS as Ardyth's cards usually are, but it's "me".  If you are as big a fan of Ardyth as I am, you'll notice the square card?  Yeah, I can't make square cards anymore without thinking of Ardyth, it's like her signature style :)

For this one I used the PTI hexagon cover plate and die cut it using white card stock, I colored the hexagons with copic markers and then attached them with foam tape to a 3X3 square. I added some wink of stella and some glossy accents to add some pizzazz! I mounted this to a black square to matt it and popped it onto a white base. The sentiment is the same as the card above and is popped on with foam tape. (LOTS of popping = LOTS of dimension.)
A funny thing about this is, those dark hexagons were actually colored using black and grey, but for some reason the glossy accents changed the color to navy. It looks darker in real life but you can still see a blue tint. 

Here is a close up that shows the shine and dimension a bit better:

Well,that's it from me, thanks for stopping by.

  1. I love them even bigger in BIG! Wow - that tiny touch of sparkle is the perfect enhancement and those hexes look so amazing with the WOS and glossy accents. I have to remember to do that more! It was so fun playing (apart but) together on this challenge!

  2. Tasha I love both of your cards and you are way too hard on yourself I think the fist one was very cool and edgy but the Wink of Stella/Glossy Accents hexies are absolutely gorgeous! So nice to see you posting again, you need to do that more. You are both so talented!

  3. Wow I had to come have a look after Ardyth mentioned you on her blog. You now have a new follower. Unbelievable your card style is so eye catching. Cant wait for time to go back further than a few pages. Following thru Feedly

  4. Natasha, simply amazing! Alucinante! hahaha. Love your card.

  6. Both of these are simply amazing!!! I love that MFT die you used on your first card and love how you have it peeking thru. Its a winner! And your second card is so gorgeous. You got such a beautiful effect with the glossy accents and each hexagon is perfect. I've tried to do this but always end up by smudging with my fingers (such a clutz).

  7. I love both, but the coloring and shine on those hexagons in the second is just incredible! Thanks so much for joining us on the Runway! :)

  8. Your card is gorgeous and so creative!
