The Last Minute...

I have been wanting to try a Moxie Fab Challenge for a while.  I got this card done for the current challenge, "I Want to Ride My Bicycle Challenge in the Moxie Fab World" on the last day!


Supplies:

Paper:  A muse (eucalyptus & green madeira), PTI white, SU real red

Stamps:  PTI (everyday button bits), A muse (tiny bird)
Ink:  Palette hybrid moulin rouge, new canvas & noir
Accessories:  frosted buttons (unknown source), hemp twine (dollar store), pop dots, SU 3/4" circle punch, MS grass punch, white prismacolour pencil, atyou Spica glitter pen (red)


I stamped the bike in white ink on Eucalyptus, one of Amuse's gorgeous new papers and coloured it in with a white pencil crayon.  I chose frosted buttons to go with the white bike and threaded them with a teeny bit of twine so that they weren't naked.  The bike was grounded with grass.  I perched the tiny bird on the seat for a hit of colour...it was stamped in red and coloured over with red glitter pen, then cut out and popped up a bit.  I have fat fingers, so this was one seriously challenging fussy cut!!  I framed the scene in white and popped it up on the eucalyptus base.  I love how the sentiment turned out...the "Enjoy" circle echoes the bike tires and provides a second hit of red.  Once this was all assembled, I added a teeny corner of red to the bike scene to make a third spot of red...

I am in love with that red Tiny Bird!!
