I just love saying, "Moxie Fab." It is becoming my second favorite word...Serendipity is my first. Go ahead... say it out loud..... It's fun to say.
"A Moxie Fab Serendipity of a day to ye." ( in my best English accent)
Did you ever pretend to have an accent when you were a kid? I did. Like anyone believed that I was from Ireland or Australia. Still it was fun. I find my daughter doing it occasionally. She also pretends to be from Texas. The funniest thing she says in that Southern drawl is, "Stop pullin' ma chicken leg." Crazy kid!
I had to come back and add that after I had uploaded this card to my Splitcoast gallery the advertisement at the top had the definition of SERENDIPITY!!! How funny is that? It was for a company called Serendipity Stamps.
I just had to share that.
Anyways, my card today is for the MOXIE FAB Challenge. We were to make a card using a gradient of colors.
I had to use this big bird stamp...Not the Sesame Street version. I decided to take my Martha Stewart pigment inks and apply them in strips. These are pigment inks so they didn't blend as well as I would have liked. Then I pulled out my Stampamajig and stamped it again in versamark and applied Iridescent Ice EP for some shimmer. The edges have just a hit of ink added to them and the whole card is layered on a strip of black. BOTH of these stamps are in this months UNITY KOTM. I used a sentiment stamp from Inkadinkado (I think) on the inside.
It reads, " Life's most beautiful things are not seen with the eyes, but felt with the heart."
I love this saying because I think it holds so much truth. Don't you think a person can become more or less beautiful on the outside to you depending on how beautiful or not they are on the inside?
I'm not sure the sun shall ever shine so that my pictures can come out better, but we shall hope. Hope you have a fabulous weekend. I'm going to take the day and just sit in my craft room without guilt. I may have something for you tomorrow. If not, make sure you check back here on Sunday for another Stamptacular Sunday Challenge.
