Here's this week's OWH sketch #222 which was inspired by my sweet friend Donna who made this card back in February.
I had every good intention of following the sketch to the letter, so I started off by embossing a whole A2 panel with the hexagons, and then placed snippets of coordinating dsp into the embossed sections to create a quilt-like pattern. All was fine until I placed that panel into the paper cutter and cut it on the wrong diagonal! No matter how I placed or turned it, there was no way it was going to follow the sketch, so I gave in and just finished the card as if it's a mirror image! LOL I'm happy with the way it came out and I'm sure it will get used even if I can't properly follow a sketch! Of course when you make a whole panel and cut it, there's another piece left over to make a 2nd card, so I made another one slightly different from the first.
For this one, I put the brads in the center of the 1/2" strip like Donna's card, and put the sentiment on the bottom. I embossed the strip with a Decorative Dots ef, and the sentiment is by CASual Friday Stamps, done in midnight muse ink.
Since I used so many snippets of dsp, I'm also taking this one over to the Snippets Playground #122.
That's a great card for inspiration Donna, and thanks to OWH for making a sketch out of it!
Happy Sunday everyone! Thanks for stopping by!
