Moxie Fab - Clean & Graphic

To celebrate the new publication Card Style, Moxie Fab World is having a daily style challenge.  The next one in line for me is Clean & Graphic.  Check out the deets and play along, why dontcha!

Here is my entry:

I so love the look of the hand-drawn frame, but when I was making this one I just couldn't for the life of me get a good, clean straight line!  So I opted for a lot of layers to create the same look with paper.

I used the Argyle Impression Plate to get that textured background and my new Kimono Kids stamp set from SU! for the string of paper lanterns.  I used various Reds and yellow (and yellow-red) Copic Sketch markers to color the lanterns in for a color pop.  I also used a white gel pen to color in the dots on the far right lantern.

Thanks for stopping by!

  7. Hi! I was looking for some inspiration for this stamp set. Your card is super cute! I saw your profile and smiled. I work in an environmental consulting firm, so scrapbooking/card making is how I relax at night. I will be posting my card using this stamp set soonish...
