Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #17

It is the week before moving house and oh what a mess our current home is!  Going to be a very busy week but we are so excited to finally move into our very own home.   This weeks sketch for AHSC is wonderful and uses the very popular hexagon's that are so fun to play with.  For my spring card workshop I did a hexagon card and have decided to submit it to this weeks challenge.  I had wanted to blog about all the cards from the Spring Workshop but time got away from me.  So I am glad that I can share this one.
This card is fun in that it is all stamping.  Stamp sets used are Honeycomb and Quick Cards- Bumble Bee.  I stamped that Bumble Bee in Archival Black Ink so that I could go back and add yellow touches of colour using my Honey Alcohol Markers. 

When I made this card I didn't have the true hexagon shape available to me via Cricut or punch so looking thru my Art Philoshopy and Artiste Cricut Collections I found this "fancy" edged hexagon in Artiste. I thought perhaps this fancy edge would give this card that little something extra that it needed. I then stamped the various patterns onto my hexagons in Honey ink and adhered them to my black cardstock base.  I used 3-D Foam tape on my large center hexagon to give it a bit of pop.   As I like to say quick, cute and done!
