I love when an inspiration challenge causes me to pull together elements I otherwise never would have considered ... such was the case with this week's Sweet Dreams Moxie Fab Tuesday Trigger.
I wanted to capture the unique color combination and the patterns. I started by *grounding* my image with the color and pattern of the rug. I used the Modern Wallpaper embossing folder on maroon Core'dinations cardstock with a light nail file sanding to bring out the pattern.
Next I wanted an airy golden pattern similar to the bedspread, so I stamped the Sweet Threads Spirals in Sunshine Yellow Pigment ink on white cardstock. Next I added papers from Carta Bella's Winter Fun and Basic Grey's Nordic Holiday Collection to complete the patterns and colors from the room.
I finished with a tag and circular sentiment from Hero Arts Believe set, which reminded me of the stacked pillows on the bed. The sketch is this week's Try Stampin' on Tuesday. I finished with a row of blue pearls that reminded me of the nails along the bottom of the bench at the end of the bed.
I'm also joining Ellen Hutson LLC Hero Arts Clear Take 'n Make using the Believe stamp set.
I'm also joining the Anything Goes Challenge at the BasicGrey Challenge blog (incorporating paper and two stamps sets) ... and Merry Christmas at Simon Says Stamps.
