Tuesday Trigger on Moxie Fab World

hey all you crafty types!

anybody a follower of the blog Moxie Fab World, hosted by the uber-fab Cath Edvalson?  she is the Trends Editor for Paper Crafts Magazine, which i subscribe to and absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE!!!  yes folks, that was a triple-love...  it's a great magazine with lots of awesome ideas, tips & tricks, and a monthly contest to boot.  and if you subscribe, you also get the digital edition free, which i load onto my iPad so I can view it when i'm just sitting around or in need of inspiration.

anyhoo, back to my opening train of thought about the Moxie Fab World.  Cath holds lots of challenges over there on her blog, and if you get a chance to play along you totally should!  you can win some GREAT prizes, even just for leaving comments!  check out the blog - you'll become a follower in no time flat!

i decided to play along with today's Tuesday Trigger challenge, and the photo is...  dum da da dum...

lovely colours, don't you think?  of course, you can glean whatever inspiration you want from the photo, whether it be the colours used, or the pattern, or whatever!  i happened to pickup some PinkPaislee "resist" Artisan Papers recently, and one of the patterns jumped into my mind to use for this challenge.  so it was the circles that caught my eye, rather than the colours...

here's what i came up with:

been playing with gelatos a lot lately, and i just keep learning new ways to use them!  gotta get me the whole colour palette!  these metallic colours i used really have a nice shimmer to them.

supplies used:

white & purple cardstock
pinkpaislee resist artisan papers (circles)
Faber-Castell gelatos - metallic colours
q-tips & baby wipes - to clean off 'resist' areas
Mark Richards glitter dome crystal stickers
Peel Offs silver border stickers
Sookwang double-sided tape
Scrapbook Adhesives foam squares
Hampton Art Stamps - you are amazing
Offray 1/4" ribbon in turquoise
Staedtler pigment liner (for black edging on sentiment)
Marvy corner notch punch

have a crafty day!
