Mellow Yellow with Moxie Fab World...

Wednesday, February 24, 2010

After having so much fun taking part in a Moxie Fab World 'Tuesday Trigger' challenge, I decided that I just had to give it another go! This week's Trigger was taken straight from the pages of the 'Stamp It Cards' magazine, a simple yet stunning card using the colour scheme of black, yellow and kraft...
Tuesday Trigger - Always Card by Kimberly Crawford, p. 79

Now, as my New Year's resolution is 'to try all things new', I decided to drag out my unopened box of water colour pencils and have a go at stamping and colouring (yes shock horror). I did managed to get a few strange looks from my husband who thought I'd reverted back to childhood with all the colouring LOL! I make no apologies because I had a wonderful time and have definitely found something that I will be trying again and again and again. I also used my brand new embossing folder which reminds me of my mother and all the smocking she used to do.
