Foiled hexagons

Let’s do a little more sparkling! I am sharing this card on The Foiled Fox blog today for the ‘Sparkle With Us’ challenge we are hosting. We would love you to join in.

This card looks a little different from my usual. My inspiration came from one of my talented crafty friends, both the technique and the style. She was inspired by one of my online crafty friends. Inspiration abounds and sometimes foiled hexagons are the result.

In real life the sparkle and pink ink look lovely together; I had to take two photos so you could see all the sparkle but neither photo does the foil the justice it deserves. To see how I ended up with the gold highlights on my alcohol ink panel click over to The Foiled Fox blog.

    Hi Heather, although I am following you always….I have not much time to comment but this time I do….beautiful card and I like that technique too….also find it at Janey’s blog for the first time……now I teach that in workshops too. Don’t know if you have ever seen my artwork with it? Anyway I always admire your work, warmly Mirand

    These two tones of alcohol ink are beautiful together Heather, and cutting the hexagons and mounting them on a panel looks fabulous and the gold foil highlights them so prettily. I love your complementary strip of foiled double sided tape across the middle too. x

    Heather, I enjoy this fun card, as much as all your others. Funny, I play with alcohol ink all the time, and it had never occurred to me to cut some into shapes, like you have done. You always give me great ideas, and I thank yoi.
