Moxie Fab Tuesday Trigger



This is the inspiration from Moxie Fab World for their Tuesday Trigger.  It's been a long time since I've played, but this one really grabbed me - I would LOVE to own this afghan;  it makes me want to curl up in front of a fire with this wrapped around me!  I love the rich autumnal colors and the unexpected touches of turquoise in the bench, so I tried to translate those colors along with the repeated shapes into my card:



Using a Harvest Rainbow inkpad, I stamped this leaf design 4 times on cream cardstock, cut them out, and then arranged them so that the color flows from the center gold outwards to the brown.  These were then placed on a rusty brown panel, which in turn was framed with a turquoise cardstock, and then that was layered onto the cream base.  To add a little more interest I added the turquoise button to the center, and the sentiment.

Supplies: cream,  rusty brown, turquoise cardstocks, Rubber Stamps of America leaf stamp, The Paper Company Studio clear Autumn Kit, Inkadinkado rainbow harvest ink, Anitas ink Teddy Bear, turquoise button and twine
