Moxie Fab World - Clean and Graphic

Last card for the Moxie Fab World -  Card Style Challenges. These cards are for the Moxie Fab World - Clean and Graphic challenge.  I really enjoyed the style challenges as I like to challenge myself to work through different styles all the time.  I am going to share two cards and the first one is my favorite:


This is a new stamp from Stampendous and as soon as I saw it I wanted it because the swirly bubbles drifted off into nothing. This was stamped with versamark and heated with clear embossing powder.  The rest is just sponging on purple, brown, blue dye inks over a resist background. The lovely charm is a RAK from Deborah (Thanks Deborah!)

The sentiment is from a Hero Arts clear set and I thought appropriate with the rich colors. The tulle is from Cornish Heritage Farms.

The second card started with me having an inspiration in the middle of the night of this crepe ribbon pleated with twine overlaid and just a sentiment.  So I created the card using that idea and then it was too plain for me. :) So out came this poodle!


Now I have to admit that she looked like she had so much attitude that I thought it would be very funny to tie a balloon to her tail! The balloon has coordinating polka dots and she looks like she is in disdain of having to carry it!

The fabulous crepe ribbon is Jenni Bowlin and a RAK from Louise. (Thanks Louise!)  The Poodle is from Judikins. The sentiment and balloon are  from Hero Arts again!

Hope you have a beautiful Saturday!  I will be back tomorrow with a tag for Louise's challenge!

  2. Brilliant clean and graphic cards Sue! The first one is so beautiful with the inking and distressing. The tulle and charm are so pretty too!

    Your second one is so funny with the poodle trying to ignore the balloon tied to her tail! Great design and love all the dots!

  10. The dotted and gathered ribbon on the second card is really cute with your dog image but I have to say I like the first one more because of that swirly image. So graphic and interesting.
