Let's get Mixy & Matchy with a Pink Elephant!

Inspired by Lyndal's awesome blog post this morning, fun with titles!  I got so inspired by the Let's Get Trendy Now 3 series that I went out and bought some neon stuff for the challenge. And then of course, I couldn't decide what to use out of what I'd bought.

The sketch this week at The Pink Elephant was perfect for including everything. (Seriously - well, not every colour of cardstock, but I opened every package.) And this has ended up mixing so many fun patterns that of course I've got to pop it in the Mixy-Matchy challenge at Moxie Fab World. 

Supplies: washi tapes & neon cardstock from Recollections; Wplus9 banner dies; Adirondack Citrus ink; Squeezed Lemonade distress ink; argyle stamp from Unity & thanks stamp from Lawn Fawn - both from the super awesome Jen Wills!; Stampendous motif stamp; 1.5" circle punch; rhinestones from Dollarama; sequins from the fabulous Emily Leiphart!

I used the ikat patterned washi to create a solid sheet of paper to work with. The three flag tabs were created the same way - putting the washi on cardstock first, and then die-cutting it. You can just barely see the yellow Stampendous image on the argyle panel. It didn't really work by itself, so I stamped the argyle over top (without conditioning the stamp first - it's brand-spanking-new, but I wanted that distressed effect). 

So, challenges:

Mixy-Matchy at Moxie Fab World:  there's ikat, argyle, animal print, and chevrons. Check!

And now I've completed all 5 of the Let's Get Trendy Now 3 challenges - but I'm also right into all those trends, so expect to see a couple more kicks at the can!
