Tuesday Trigger - Moxie Fab World

Wow! Two challenge entries in one day... Only because I am on vacation this week could I create two different projects within a day of the challenges. :)

The Tuesday Trigger Challenge on the Moxie Fab World was created by Kazan Clark and inspired by this picture from Coastal Living.

Here is my take on the trigger:

Love the inspiration piece that Kazan created and I probably might try another card which emulates the clean and simple lines. But this morning the inspiration hit to try to capture what inspired the room design.

The background stamp is the new Hero Arts Silhouette Grass. I stamped it in the Versafine Toffee stamp. (I am loving this color more and more) The grass is shaded with watercolor pencil to make it pop on the background. I sponged the background with the Adirondack pool color. The shells, birds and dragonflies are from a new Hero Arts Clear Design set Antique Engravings. The sand is sponged using a dauber and then I added texture and colors using a textured sponge.

The sentiment is from Cornish Heritage Farms Joys and Sorrows.

Thanks for stopping by...
