A Painterly Palette from Moxie Fab World

When I saw this fun inspiration photo for the Moxie Fab World Tuesday Trigger I had lots of super fun ideas!  I love the colors, I love the circles, and I love how the colors have a bit of an 'outline' created by the paint pots.


I decided to begin with a kraft base and stamp white circles all over the background.  I then added color by stamping pretty pastel inks over the white spots.  Some are full circles, others are just rings.  This was SO much fun to do!

Polka Dot Hello


Now, before you go thinking I have some MAD spacial orientation skills and got those dots by just carefully stamping... yeah, I totally cheated.  Well, I don't call it cheating, so much, I simply utilized the resources around me!  YAY!  That's a good thing, right? Right.  HA!

Background stamp grid


One of the things I love about The Stamps of Life stamps is that they are cut so precisely!  That means that you can use the background stamps as a guide with other stamps to create new backgrounds!  I used the  circles from the bubblegum4me set inside the background4bees background to get my grid.  SO FUN!

The sentiment is stamped and embossed on vellum using the standup4sentiments set!  I love the vertical sentiments in this set!  They are so fun!

Thanks for checking out my fun card!  Have a Happy!
