Tuesday Trigger - Celebrate


It's been a while since I played with the Moxie Fab World Tuesday Trigger, but this one is so interesting and beautiful! It took me a bit of time to figure out how I was going to achieve a similar look and feel.



I noticed that the rectangles in the inspiration don't appear to be one solid colour. So I used my Caribbean and Desert Heat Kaleidecolor pads to achieve that kind of blended look.

When I stamped my Stampin' Up Celebrate directly on the coloured rectangles, I found it a bit busy and hard to read, so I stamped the sentiment again on white and cut a narrow strip out of the white and popped it up - it's kind of fun that the whole word isn't on white - it adds some texture and depending on where you are when you're looking at it, the different parts letters line up slightly differently.

ETA - this card was selected as a Target!

Stunning, Ardyth ... using the kaleidoscope inks is inspired ... the graduated look is brilliant. Love how you did the sentiment, partly on the yummy colours and partly popped up! A fantastic take on the Trigger! Anita :)

Oh yes, for sure this is THE winner! I always envy your genius, but more than that I admire your absolute precision/patience it must take to carry off so many of your designs, especially the ones using your Kaleidoscope pads.

oh I totally recognized this as a Tuesday Trigger before I read your commentary. What a great interpretation!! I was hoping you'd do this one ... it's very graphic and right up your alley. You're right, the rectangles aren't a solid color. Totally makes the design sing!
