I have four new cards to show! They all are geometric ones and were made for a blog I designed for. Have to admit – geometry is not my cup of tea. I love geometric cards other crafters made, but myself cannot succeed in making them. I kinda don’t feel this types of cards or something. Maybe that’s why I’m not very satisfied with ones showing today.
But still ­čÖé

The first one – hexagons mosaic, inspired by a Pinterest image. Tried to replicate the background and almost succeed in it, but didn’t like how it looked along with hexagons. So I covered it with vellum and still didn’t like it. Finally removed that background at all lol.
Next – hexagons. I wanted to replicate this mix of flat and dimensional ones, made this by creating DIY-chipboards. ┬áCannot say I like this card. It turned out to be kinda heavy (not only heavy itself, but also looks heavily).Card_150209_01_ORIG

Card_150217_07_ORIG Card_150217_08_ORIGVery simple card, well-know heart shape made from triangles. Cut them from different cardstock, adhere triangles in a casual manner, added a sentiment using my DYMO printer (which is neglected by me for some reason, forgot how cool sentiments are made with it).

Which was easy, I used probably the first technique I learnt in my life (when was in kindergarten or so) – using baking sheet and a pencil. Next tried embossing, scoring, stitching – didn’t like. Finally drew it with a distress marker (with fine tip) using my pencil marks as a guide, added more color over with brush tip, made a watercolor look with brush and clean water. Some splashes and sequins as finishing touches.
