This week's One Layer Wednesday challenge is hosted by Susan at Simplicity. I must say the challenge this week is not a favorite of mine. I really don't care for pink and orange together. Susan's card is fabulous, but I can never get these two colors to go together! Of course, my other problem is that I really don't like to stamp images in color....I much prefer to stamp in black or brown and color my images. But...it is a challenge and so I wanted to give it a chance. Here's my take...such as it is.
This first card is made using a background stamp from Paper Smooches. I can't decide if I like these stamps or not. I can never seem to get a clean stamped image when I use them. I stamped the image in pale pink, then filled in several of the hexagons with an orange marker and then others with a pink marker. The sentiment is from Flourishes and was stamped in black. I also added a touch of glossy accents to the orange hexagons...and for some reason that made them look red, but honestly, they are orange!
My second attempt isn't much better. I used an image from PTI and stamped it in pink and orange. I was going to just use it as a border with two lines of the image, but then decided that looked "unfinished", so I added some random stamps across the card, leaving a space to insert the sentiment. Sentiment is from Flourishes and is stamped in orange.
Like I said...not too happy with my cards this week and they may end up in the trash, but I did give it a try!
Thanks so much for stopping by!! Your comments are much appreciated!! Until next time...
