It’s Trigger Tuesday at Moxie Fab World. It is such a cool picture, isn’t it?
I was first pulled in by the Orange & Pink Toile wallpaper, but then my eyes kept swirling around trying to take it all in. Then I zoned in on the headboard!
So my inspiration is definitely the French feel, as well as the combo with such vibrant & contemporary colors, with the flourish of the headboard.
Here is what I created:
I attempted to mimic the headboard using the flourishes, then created a border with BB: Retro. I felt I HAD to add the pink , so I layered the border with Raspberry Fizz cardstock & trimmed it with pinking shears to keep the “feel” from the background stamp. I still wasn’t satisfied, so I pulled out an aqua copic to color the diamonds in. The black circles in the center looked empty, so I colored those in in black. I had already chosen the sentiment I wanted, but wasn’t sure where I wanted it. I had a scrap oval in aqua from the frame die in “Simply Jane”, so I flung it on there. And the eclectic feel wouldn’t be eclectic if I didn’t toss in a few cool buttons and some bling!
I combined A LOT of elements onto the card, but overall I am satisfied.
Thanks for looking!
