I needed a card for my 7 year old great nephew and when I saw this technique of using the Hexagons to make a caterpillar I just had to make it for his birthday. My inspiration for the card came from Crafter's companion Inspiration Magazine Issue 3 Summer page 14.
With mine I wanted it to look like he was in lush grass so I took my embossing folder and after embossing rubbed the ink pad over it to give it some depth and bring out the design a little more, I used a white marker for his eyes that I bought at Target in their $ section and added a little black pen to that. His antennas are flower stamens that I colored black with marker and taped to the back side of the head. Punched out the grass for a little in front of him also.
Diamond Press -- Hexagon dies came with magazine
Cuttlebug -- Floral screen embossing folder
Fiskars -- Grass punch
Hero Arts -- It's your day sentiment stamp
It has me wondering what other things can be made out of the hexagons, I have seen flowers, can't remember if I have done a card with them though, you maybe seeing one of those soon :)
Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by today and let me know you did!
