Roughing It Up
This is a bit of a rough and ready card. It wasn't meant to be but I rather went with the flow of serendipity. I could have started it again but I actually like the imperfections. It has the appeal of Wabi-Sabi. Clean, simple and rough around the edges.
It's a card I've made for this week's CAS(E) this Sketch.
For a change, I wanted to go monochromatic with neutrals. I die cut the hexagons. So far, so good. Then I wondered how they would look if I ran them through an embossing folder. The cracks which resulted, were my answer. It was at this point I felt I'd try and run with it, see if I could make them work. I eye-balled the placement of them and again it means, they are not perfectly aligned. The label maker for the sentiment is never true in how it punches the letters out. So at least it has unity lol.
And actually, the card looks much better in real life than the photo above. It feels cohesive and the pieces look stuck down much better than they do on my computer screen.
