Nm green hex card pmd 7

Sometimes you want to make a card where you can just have fun and get inky. This is one of those cards. I used:

This card was all about the background for me. I cut down a panel of the All Media Artist card, and took out two complimenting green Distress Inks, Mowed Lawn & Cracked Pistachio. I inked up the panel of the card by swiping the ink pads across the card, using the edge of the ink pad in a sweeping, arching movement. The trick to this is to move confidently and decisively.

I decided I needed a little more contrast in the colours so I grabbed Evergreen Bough for some darker green accents, and added a few swipes of this. You need to remember that these inks do dry a little lighter than when you initially put them down, so don't be too shocked by how bold they look.

Once my panel was dry - don't be impatient here, let it dry fully! - I layered it onto a panel of the Rose Gold mirrored card, and added it to the White Card blank. I created some hexagons out of the Rose Gold card, which I lay down on top to play with placement at this point.

The card needed some embellishment, so I took out some little wooden hex shapes I had and again played around with embellishment on the card to get the layout right.

I used the same distress inks to then colour these little shapes. This did colour my fingers green so I would recommend being careful at this stage!

I created a banner sentiment, added all my elements onto the card and it was done. I tried to keep it all as simple as possible so that the background could take centre stage!
