I'm joining in on the Moxie Fab Tuesday Trigger this week. This week's trigger is such a soft, pretty image. A Little Romance describes it so well, doesn't it? I decide that I'd work to create card that incorporated all the elements... the ivory lace and soft, blue-green and sepia tones in the photo.
Though I didn't have any lace in my ribbon stash (yes it surprised me too, lol) I was able to capture the feel of lace by using a delicate edge punch. The sheer, crepe ribbon and the tiny pearls add a bit of sheen and echo the pearl buttons and sheer sleeves of the blouse. I would have liked the blue-green lace print paper to have been just a bit softer in color and in retrospect it occurs to me that I could have perhaps used a layer of vellum in this design to make everything even softer, but all-in-all I'm happy with it.
The Moxie Fab Tuesday Trigger has become one of my favorite challenges. A new one is typically posted every Tuesday with a Sunday deadline so it works well in my typical 'weekends only' crafting schedule. If you enjoy photo inspiration challenges I encourage you to check it out.
