Grunge and Hexagons — FMS97

It’s Wednesday and that means it’s time for another sketch challenge at Freshly Made Sketches, and the super talented, Artisan Award Winning, Jennifer Timko has a fun sketch for us.

In keeping with the Gorgeous Grunge theme this week, I used that stamp set and the Six-Sided Sampler set (the hexagon set).  I was slow in getting this set, but now that I have it, I’m having a hard time not using it all of the time.

Grungey HexagonsI’m not sure why, but I’ve had a hard time using the Modern Medley dsp.  At convention, it seemed like all of the stamping demonstrations included this dsp — everyone raved about it.  So I’m determined to give it a fair shake and use it.  And I must say, that I like it on this card.  I like it with the softer colors.

I hope you’ll join us in this sketch challenge at Freshly Made Sketches.  You can see what the other designers made here.  Come back tomorrow and I’ll have another Gorgeous Grunge project for you.

Enjoy your Wednesday!  Thanks for stopping by!

  1. Amy, love the mix of color here with your dsp. It’s really pretty with the softer colors. Such a trendy card! This is awesome!

  2. Gorgeous card! I am really kicking myself that I got rid of my hexagon punch before it became popular again!! I love what you did with the dp!

  3. Loving all the cards this week, Amy! I have the hexagons on my order that I’m submitting later, so I’m keeping an eye on what all you are doing with it.

  4. Wow, for not being a “grunge” kind of girl, you have rocked the grunge challenge! I really enjoyed looking through all of your cards and projects to get to this post. All of them are amazing designs! This card is gorgeous, too. I’m a little scared of my Gorgeous Grunge set, but I think you’ve given me courage to try it. I love how you used the iridescent ice and transformed the grunge! 🙂
