In Transition - Moxie Fab Tuesday Trigger

I'm playing along again with one of my very favorite challenges, the Moxie Fab World Tuesday Trigger. I always start out by asking myself what I see or think of when I look at the trigger image. This image is colorful, techy and it has movement to it... almost as though it's vibrating. Here's my attempt at wrapping all that into a card design.

When I initially began cutting my thin strips I thought they should all be identical but as I began to glue them down in to a pattern I decided that perfectly matched pieces would take away the feeling of movement and create a much more static pattern so I abandoned the idea and just let myself be guided by instinct instead.

This was a challenging trigger for me and yet interestingly enough I can see several possible approaches and I might even do another if time allows.

Happy Crafting!

Love it! I can see using the idea for all the extra strips of 1/4" paper scraps. Perfect card for a teenager or a musician.

Amazing card Paula! I have to agree that it does "vibrate" with color.
