Moxie Milton


Hee hee! I just tend to giggle when I see these Wild Rose stamps... They are just too cute! They stamp well and are so much fun to color. My friend Julie sells these at her store Paper and Such. Anyway, this is Milton with Daisy, isn't he just too much? I colored Milton with copics (surprise, surprise.. right?) and followed the layout for the second Paper and Such blog challenge.
I also used the Tuesday Trigger from Moxie Fab World as an inspiration on this card. The colors of the pyrex picture sort of called to me.
As you might know.. I have "issues" working with bright colors, so I saw the orange and red as a real challenge for myself. I also noticed that there was some patterns and brown/black included on the table, so the color scheme was born! Once you have the sketch, the image, and the colors, what's to stop you :-) I added a little texture to the brown panel with an impression plate and I made a flower to represent the flowers in the design on the pyrex as well.
