Moxie Fab - Finding Inspiration In a Layout Challenge
This is my entry for the latest Moxie Fab challenge! You can view the details of the challenge here.
I found my inspiration in the colors used on the layout and also I loved the different strips of paper and how they were used.
Oh.. and I loved the stitching!
In the last few months, I purchased a little better sewing machine. However... I have not gotten it out and set it up yet. I was running out of time to participate so I did some faux stitching with my Sassafras stamps! Turned out about how my real stitching looks... a little off but hey... it is handmade, right? :)
This card was definitely out of my comfort zone... using lots of patterned paper and almost no stamping. But... I am pretty happy with how it turned out!
Maybe if I can take the time to set up my sewing machine I might find that I can use more paper on my projects. I have all sorts of ideas running around in my head using stitching! Well... 2 or 3 maybe! :)
BTW... the base of the card is actually white... it looks a little pink to me in the picture! Like I said... running out of time to participate. I took this pic about 7pm tonight. I don't like to wait till the last day so I wanted to get it posted tonight!
Hope you have a great Sunday night/Monday!
Peace and Love!
