Tuesday Trigger.



















The Tuesday Trigger challenge over at the Moxie Fab World blog is a new one for me,  I have been following the blog for a few months but this is the first time I have had a go at one of their challenges.
I love the inspirational photograph, the colours and the beautiful white flowers in the vase along with the blue flower on the cushion all inspired me to make this mini card,
I have stamped the white card  with the Basicgrey/ Hero Arts sweet threads flower using versamark ink and then brushing with perfect pearls for a shimmer. I then stamped the flower again onto another piece of card using Pool Adirondack ink and, using the same ink and a paint brush coloured in the flower.
Here is a close up of the background.

I am looking forward to the weekend now, my first week back at school has been really busy.  We had 87 new 7 year olds starting school this week and its always a hard week!

I am so glad you are playing with Moxie Fab! Great take on this trigger too! I love the touch of Perfect Pearls! I don't think I have used that for about 2 years! So nice to see it's beautiful effect again! I take my hat off to you for being a teacher! My daughter just started Kindergarten and now has homework, and we are both in tears by the time that's over!

I had to let you know that I was inspired to make my own combo flower centre, and I love it. Thanks so much for the inspiration!
