Moxiefab Tuesday Trigger: Flower Power

(This is my second post for the day, please scroll down if you want to see the first).

Ok, I have decided to play with the Moxie Fab Tuesday Trigger, just because I love the colours!  Here is the inspiration photo:

Don't you just love it!  I wish I had that pillow in my craft room!  So vibrant and alive, makes me feel like having a party!  A beach party perhaps!  I love the bright colours and lovely funky curvy shapes of the petals!  And all that white space! So, having now been inspired, I came up with this:

Paper: Neenah Solar White cardstock, Notecard (Michaels)
Ink: Iris Chalk Ink (Hero Arts), Memento Tuxedo Black, Copic Markers
Stamps: Hero Arts
Other: Cuttlebug embossing folder, Nestability Die, Dimensional strips

I first cut out a window for the top white layer, afterwhich I embossed that piece using my Cuttlebug.  Then I measured a smaller piece of Neenah paper that would sit behind the window and I stamped the flower image from the "Let's Chill" set several times and coloured it in with Copic markers.

I adhered the stamped piece to the card base, then I added the embossed piece using dimensional adhesive strips for some depth.

Lastly, something to hold the sentiment.  Well, I wanted to put a tab like piece in that top corner, and decided to use one of the smaller Nestabilitie Dies from a set, and then cut that in half lengthwise.  So there you are, my first entry to this fabulous Moxie Fab blog!  It is so inspirational all the items Cathy comes up with each day!

Go take a look!
