Hexagons galore


       If you haven't visited the Designed to Color blog you might want to hop over there and take a look around.  Besides having a monthly scheduled challenge they also publish a magazine with great coloring tips and some amazing projects from some uber talented colorists like my TSG team mate, Kim O'Connell.
     TSG is sponsoring the new challenge that's up to day and the DT was invited to play along.  Can you guess what the challenge is?  If you said hexagons you're right.  I used my MFT hexagons die and one of the adorable bear stamps from one of Torico's latest TSG releases, "The Beary Best".  I just adore these little bears.
     You can hop over to the DTC blog to check out the inspiration from their DT and our TSG girls.
     I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Clearly Inspired--die cuts
Make It Monday--anything goes
Stamp and Create--fur or feathers
Sentimental Sunday--3 embellies that start with "b" (banner, button , bow)

     Happy weekend!

Supplies:  Paper--My Mind's Eye "Rosy", Kraft Outlet Light Kraft, Recollections, Copic XPress-it Blending card; Stamps--There She Goes Clear Stamps "The Beary Best"; Ink--Copics, Memento Tuxedo Black, Ranger Jet Black Archival ink, Sakura gold and white gel pens, Micron pen; Tools--MFT Die-namics Hexagons and Fishtail Banners; Miscellaneous--Michaels button, Kraft Outlet Hang Tag String
