Get Inspired - By Fashion


Moxie Fab World is having a series of challenges inspired by Get Inspired Magazine. Cath says "Its message is: Boost your creativity by relying on everyday items from which to jump-start your mojo." 

The first everyday item is this


Looking at the houndtooth jacket, I am inspired by the houndstooth, the brooch and the color of the jacket.


I dry embossed houndstooth on a white cardstock and sponged Tim Holtz's Faded Jeans distress ink on the it. The ornate frame is from Kmart. The sentiment is from Mega Mixed Messages from Papertrey Ink. The blue cardstock is from Papertrey Ink too. The white cardstock is from Gina K. I like that the ornate frame brings everything together.
 
If you like to play, then here is the link to the challenge. This is just the first and there is more challenges to come. I am hoping to play all of them. Hope you too. Thanks for stopping by! 

See you soon...
 
Luv!

Great interpretation of the challenge. Great look with the ink brushed over the embossed houndstooth. Love that fram. Sure is beautiful.

I must say...very clean distressing indeed. When I try to distress an embossed image it turns out a bit splotchy and sometimes gets into the non-embossed areas too which I thoroughly dislike. Looks like you've taken your time with the distress inks and it shows. Stunning card!

I love it! Looks like you actually cut apart the jacket and used it on the card- such great texture!

How cool! Does your creative genius know no bounds? Lucky duck. This is so fantastic! The embossed and inked background is that jacketthrough and through. Again with the Kmart treasure. Amazing!
