Love Wins - Moxie Fab World Set the Table Tuesday Trigger

Quick Note: Today (Sunday) is the last day to vote for my You Are Wonderful Card in the Downtown Tape contest on Facebook! I'd LOVE your vote! You can vote once per day!


When I saw the aged, mixed metals showcased in this week's Set The Table Tuesday Trigger over at Moxie Fab World I HAD to jump on this one!  It is just so inspiring!


I just love the gold and silver and the tarnish on all of it! The softness of the metals really struck me, as metallic designs are often bold and strong, but this one is softer and more subtle. I decided to fly with that idea for my card.

Love Wins

I stamped the feathers from the Frame and Feathers set from Hero Arts in three different colors to give them depth and interest. I then accented each image with a gold pen from Faber Castel. I used that same gold pen to outline the feather panel..I then used silver and white gel pens to add a tarnished look to that border. I love how that turned out! It's a bit greener in the photo than in real life...it looks so much like tarnished metal in real life and I love that! I double stamped the sentiment in two colors to maintain that weathered feel and tied some twine around the card to complete the softness.

I hope you are having an absolutely spectacular weekend! I got to spend some time shopping for crafty goodness yesterday and I've been creating like crazy, too, so I am LOVING IT!!!

Have A Happy!!!

Jingle Out!

  3. Have to agree with Wida - there's always so much of interest to be hunted out on your cards - like a mini treasure hunt! Love the little shadows on the sentiment and bottom leaf, and the perfect twine bow!
