Moxie Fab World - Color Inspiration Challenge Neutrals

Cath at the Moxie Fab World put forth a set of color inspirations challenges. The neutrals color challenge spoke to me with the soft soothing smoky blue gray, the twig and off white combination of hues.

I decided to pull out my Artistic Outpost sets Steampunk, Think and Wonder and Ephemera Backgrounds to create a card for an explorer.

I stamped the train twice and popped it up to give it the feel of flowing off the card. As a child I used to dream about travelling the world and I think this card captures that. :)

On another note... I am very excited as my hubby has been working on special set of drawers for me to create a new desk and they were finished last night. Now he has to cut the top. I have pulled everything out of my craft room to accommodate the new desk and am looking forward to putting it all back together over the weekend. I will try to share pictures after I re-assemble my room. (Yeah!)



  1. Hi Suzz, I really love this card and the train really does look like its flowing off the card, brilliant. I love all the elements on this piece and the sentiment. Male cards can be a little challenging at times but this is perfect. How exciting having more storage, I love storage, or is it the fact I like more space for more new goodies LOL. Have a great day, Tracy Evans x x

  2. Travy has said just what I was thinking while I was looking at your brilliant card. The train really does seem to be travelling!

    Nothing better than new storage. Have fun filling it all up and I'll look forward to the pics!
