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.
