Moxie Fab Card Creations Week – The Emphasise The Negative Challenge

By Taheerah | 13th March 2013 | 8 Comments

Hi everyone! How are you doing today?

I’m back playing with another Moxie Fab World Challenge. This time I’m bringing you an entry for The Emphasise The Negative Challenge.

I had an idea in my head for this since I saw it, but I wasn’t too sure how it would turn out. It’s a little bit of a style departure for me as I tackle something a bit more, gulp, whimsical…

What do you think? I actually really like how this turned out! Feels very homespun to me!

I started with a panel of Rustic White cardstock and die cut the letters from it using the PTI Script Alphabet Die Collection (both upper and lower case). I then literally emphasised the negatives, by backed the openings with various patterned papers (supply list can be found below).

I had a lot of fun mixing and matching the patterns to create a homespun look! Some of the letters also got a ‘double negative’ treatment, with pieces of patterned paper making it to the front of the panel as well!

I then accented with some stamping, using Mini Blooms and Mama Elephant’s Trifecta set. I used Hero Arts inks in Bubble Gum and Butter Bar, and PTI inks in Sweet Blush, Limeade Ice, Berry Sorbet, Hawaiian Shores and Smokey Shadow. I stamped some of the blooms onto a separate piece of cardstock then trimmed out and adhered to the panel using Pinflair Glue Gel.

After that it was just the simple matter of adhering the panel to a Rustic White card base, and I was all done!

Well I have almost worked my way through all these challenges now. Not decided yet whether to take a little break from them now or whether to complete the set now! I would love to know what you think of this little card though. Thanks so much for stopping by, I do hope you have a great day!

  1. Hey Taheerah! Thanks for linking this up to the Emphasize the Negative Challenge in the Moxie Fab World! I'm so glad you joined in on all the fun! 🙂

  2. You hit the nail on the head with the label of "homespun" … totally the feeling I get! But you know what I love the most? That you have a billion different patterned papers here, and not one of them is from the same set. You always do things the hard, and manual, way. LOVE it!
