It's a clean and simple design that you can make not so clean and simple if you'd like! I followed the design pretty much to a tee this time.
To create the hexagon shapes, I used the Hexagon Web Stencil. This is a very cool stencil! I chose the size of the hexagon and then took a brush with a little paint on it and lightly traced the shape. I carefully removed the stencil and filled in the entire hexagon. I did two layers of watercolour to get the hard edges that I love so much and repeated 3 times.
To jazz it up a bit, I used some gold paint thinned out with water and added a generous amount of splatter!
I decided to do some rough outlines with a black pen on the inner portion of each hexagon. This defined the shape a bit more. I took the "hey" sentiment from the Decorated Wishes Add On Set and used Versaclair Ink in Nocturne. To make the sentiment stand out a bit more, I added a bit of a drop shadow with a white gel pen. I cut down the panel using a stitched rectangle die and foam mounted it onto a grey, A2, top fold card base.
And that's my take on the sketch!!
