Caribbean Hexagons

Hello Readers,

For today I will be playing along with Colour Q and Creative with Stamps. Wow, was this card fun to make. So here it is, enjoy!

I used the grounding technique for this design.
I felt it needed it for such a busy background.
I used two lines to ground the sentiment. I felt like it created a more modern look and in keeping with the feel of the card. 
The sentiment is also modern and bold with a bit
of shadow to enhance the letters just a bit.

Challenges Entered:

Can you absolutely believe how this background stamp from Hero Arts matches the inspiration photo!! I saw this and my eyes were saucers! I immediately decided what I wanted to do. So I stamped the hexagon background stamp on black CS then heat embossed in white. Then I colored in certain hexes with my aqua pen and white pigment ink. By doing this step it will make the Caribbean color more true. Lastly, I added the Caribbean color using PrismaColor pencils. I really enjoy how this turned out. 

Thank you so much for joining me at TheGrandStampede. I really do appreciate every single visit; comment or not! I hope this finds everyone well and healthy. So until next time take care and we will see you soon!

All the best,

OH MY I thought the background was designer paper and thought oh no you need to use a stamp for CWS.. but I see it's a stamp and you colored it in. OH MY again I love this. Your coloring is awesome and the exact right places to add the color. I love this card. So glad you shared over at Creative with Stamps.
