Some Royal Fun...A Tuesday Trigger!

I haven't found the time to play along with Moxie Fab World's Tuesday Trigger since before I went on vacation - I printed out this week's, Some Royal Fun, on Tuesday when Cath posted it, and then lost it in the disaster area of my desk. However, I remembered the colours, and knew I wanted to use them in my project.





Supplies: white cardstock;
stamps all from Stampin' Up!;
Distress inks: Tumbled Glass, Worn Lipstick, Dried Marigold;
misc. rhinestones
While plotting out this not-my-usual CAS design, I knew the stamps I wanted to use, and that I wanted to have lots of white space. I also wanted to mask off the rose, rather than colour in in. The first attempt (which I recycled & forgot to take a picture of) looked kind of flat with only the blue & pink inks, so I added the marigold. The rhinestones next to the sentiment are to mimic the shiny jewels on the plate. Once I was happy with the basic card, I made 5 more for a set of 6. My husband really didn't care for this - he says they look unfinished. Meh. I like them anyway.

xoxo,
Jessi
