Ever have one of those moments when you picture a card in your head but it just doesn't turn out the way you envision it? Here's one of those cards:
I wanted to work with the Hexagon stamps from Papertrey Ink and I knew I wanted to go monochromatic. Now the hexagons weren't too bad (and I love the sentiment) but I was afraid it was all together too plain. So I added the ribbon corner. Nope, that didn't do it. So I added Scor-Tape around each hexagon and then glitter. Ok, now I went over-board!
But here's what I love about card-making: It's only paper and can be "round-filed" and restarted!
I peeled the layer with the images off the card base (that could be re-used) and created something I am much happier with:
First, I like the orientation of the hexagon images better in this layout. I stayed with the monochromatic look but used an ombre approach, darker at the bottom and filtering up to lightest at the top. I corner rounded one top corner and left everything else alone.
What do you think? Good changes?
