Papertrey Ink 9th Anniversary - Day 3 - Grab & Craft Challenge

Day 3 of Papertrey Ink's Anniversary celebration was actually a couple of days ago, I have had no telephone and internet service for the past day so am only now getting caught up. This challenge was to take 5 minutes to collect supplies then create a card using all of the supplies you had chosen. - see the details here.

I grabbed white cardstock, one stamp set, one coverplate, my copics, 3D foam tape and black ink. Here is what I came up with. I used everything that I grabbed and am quite happy with how it turned out.

I coloured the hexagons with copics then popped them up with 3D foam. The hexagons on the very bottom are actually purple, but with no sun today it did not photograph well. I did have one little cheat - once I had laid out my hexagons with the pop of colour in the bottom corner the sentiment needed to echo some of that colour, so I did add orange ink to the mix.

Stamps - Stylish Sentiments: Birthday (PTI)
Coverplate - Hexagon (PTI)
Paper - Stampers Select White (PTI), Neena Solar White CS
Ink - Memento Tuxedo Black, Orange (CTMH), Copics - B32, 34, 37, YR00, 12, 16, BV02, 04,08, G00, 05, 17, YG01, 03, 17, BG10, 13, 15
Other - 3D foam
