Repeat after me, trust!

Today's Mixability challenge was to repeat shapes on our cards. I decided to go with hexagons. I used a punched acetate stencil to lay down Gelato colors on my paper first.
After scribbling the Gelatos onto the paper, I dry rubbed them a bit to intensify the colors. I then spritzed to let the colors bleed along the edges a bit. I then spritzed well again and added some salt. As it was pretty much dry, I started to add some hexagon embossing with the Honeycomb ef.

I used my silver ink rubbed along the top of the raised hexagons.

Here's the finished card with my word for 2015! More on that on my description at splitcoast
