Moxie Fab World - Tuesday Trigger

The Tuesday Trigger on the Moxie Fab world was selected by Maren B. Here is her inspiration picture from Pottery Barn.

Now you would think.... that if you had 3 porcelain plates purchased at a discount store with the intent of stamping on them..... that you would have had an Ah Ha moment when you saw the trigger....

Unfortunately some of us take a little longer. :) I love these plates I picked up and just this morning did I remember that they were sitting there and that they would look lovely with a similar idea.

The best part is I have had this poem from Verses which works perfectly with the image.

The hardest part about this project was finding something to put my cling stamps on that fit in the center of the plate. It only took me 5 failed attempts before I decided to look for a circle surface for my cling stamps. (glass jar top)

I stamped using my StaZon ink which takes nicely on the surface. If you make mistakes you can wipe it off using the StaZon cleaner. I don't have a sealant over my stamped image, so this will be a decoration only.

The verse in case you can't see it clearly is as follows:

Hope is the thing with feathers

that perches on the soul,

that sings a tune without words

and never stops at all.

Emily Dickinson

Off to Church and then cleaning up the Christmas decorations. The house always feels so bare after the holidays.

Hope you have a blessed Sunday!
