Moxie Collage


The inspiration picture for the latest Tuesday Trigger challenge at the Moxie Fab World is a bright and cheery collage.  It immediately made me think of think of this Hero Arts bird collage stamp.  I won it ages ago and it's been sitting patiently waiting to be used.  (NBUS alert!!)  I have always been pretty intimidated by it as it's much busier than my usual style but I decided to see if I could make it work for me.  Some cheery colours and paper piecing later and I like it!  It's still busy and collagey but I feel like it's also me.  Mission accomplished.



Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (Pretty In Pink, So Saffron, Certainly Celery, Bashful Blue, Crumb Cake) Stampin' Up
Stamp:  (Bird Collage) Hero Arts, (Very Vintage Greetings) WPlus9
Ink:  (VersaFine Onyx Black) Tsukineko
Gems:  Recollections

This is so beautiful, Jen! Love the HA stamp image and think it is just 'busy' enough :)

So pretty! Love the pastel colours. I kind of like collage stamps... easier than attempting my own collages, at least! :D

Totally agree ... this is a wonderful example of using a busy image in a clean and classy way! So hard to do, but you nailed it. Love how you didn't color any of the images. Such a sharp look, esp. on the kraft!
