Loving Thoughts


Moxie Fab World is hosting some pretty dang neat challenges for the 75 Creative Card Challenges Week, and one of them is to Create Your Own Background Paper. I started with soft gray paper, lightly stamped the large bloom in gray and then came back with the same stamp in green ink. My initial thought was to create a letterpressed look, but I will have to work on this a bit more. I filled in the empty areas with the smaller stamps in a yellow chalk ink, as well as in the center of the large blooms. Finally, I added a touch of black enamal accent dots to each flower's center. The background was busy enough, so I simply adorned the card with a large, silk green bow and a sentiment from the set!
