Hello, it’s Kari here today sharing some options on how to use hexagon stencils three ways! This kit came with some beautiful hexagon layering stencils, but you don’t have to use them just for that one purpose. Here are a few more ideas for you:

Card 1

First of all, use one of the stencils to make a rainbow hexagon background. Tape off one row of the hexagons and ink blend using all colors of the rainbow, changing colors for each row. Don’t forget to clean your stencil when you change colors!

To finish off this card, I did a bit of no-line watercoloring on those bees and added some gemstones in rainbow colors for the bee trails. I added a die-cut word and stamped the “Bee Happy” in gray ink.

Cards 2 and 3

For the next two, I did some offset stenciling using 1 or 2 of the stencils. I used two different colors on this one and the same sized hexagon stencils. Then, I inked on the yellow first, then moved the stencil a little to the right and inked on the pink just overlapping these colors a little bit.

I colored up a few bees, along with the bee and flower using Copic markers. I added some green dots to the stem and leaves of the flower and glossy accents to the petals. The wings of the bees got a little dash of glitter.

For my last card today, I used the same color of ink, but two different sizes of stencils. This time I changed the overlap; I think this creates a beautiful look for a background.

To finish this one, I did more no-line watercoloring on the flower spray and bee. Some touches of Stickles to the flowers and leaves give it a glittery shine. Then I added a gold heat-embossed sentiment and a strip of glitter paper beneath it.

I hope you enjoyed these projects today and got inspired! See you next time,
