I haven't made time for entering challenges lately, but I really wanted to play around with the current tuesday trigger, over at moxie fab world.
From this delicious embroidered pattern, to this card:
Now. I lurve this card so much, but the photo of it, not so much. We have been on March break this week, and my goal is to spend every waking minute with the kidlets, not setting up for photos....I snapped this one quickly on our dining room table.
I grabbed several elements from the inspiration photo:
- the fabric texture, which I translated into my impressed white mat with its roughed-up edges.
- the color scheme, incorporated into my botanicals and banner
- the random grid stitching, (and for this one you'll have to trust me) which I showed on my white mat, in the form of randomly-stamped tiny hexagons. They're not showing up in the picture too well....grrrr.... but they're there.
If you squint, you can see them in this photo *grins*
I used all lawn fawn stamps for this card: blissful botanicals, bannerific, the tiny flower from summertime charm, and the hexagons from interlocking backdrops. I have to give a shout out to the new dies. They are awe-some! I lurve the fact that I can stamp and then die cut a perfect white border afterwards. If you own lawn fawn stamps, you need to own the dies too!
There's still time for you to play along with the moxie fab challenge! I love seeing what inspires different crafters, all from the same photo.
ps, colored-in banners are my new fave.
