Moxie Fab Trigger Tuesday

I decided to play along with Trigger Tuesday at the Moxie Fab World blog this week. This challenge was posted a while ago, but I've been discovering all sorts of new blogs and challenges lately!! Here is the trigger photo...


I made some of these pom pom decorations for a daughter's 7th birthday party and think they are so fun!! They also immediately made me think of a Bo Bunny stamp set I have collecting dust. So I pulled out that stamp set and some acrylic paint. I've also been seeing all sorts of wonderful mixed media art pieces in blogland lately and it made me want to get out my acrylic paints. I used the paints with my stamp and came up with this card.


It's a little bit messy because of my stellar acrylic paint technique but I like it. I chose to pair the kraft and white with purple and blue, my two favorite colors. And maybe secretly because I have purple baker's twine I wanted to use. Or perhaps my love for baker's twine really is no secret?


The sentiment and little swirly-do stamp is from Papertrey Ink. I didn't quite know how it was going to stamp over the acrylic paint, but it did just fine!


I loved this trigger photo and hopefully will be playing along with more Moxie Fab challenges in the future. Thanks for stopping by today, Friends!
