OLW 53, Moxie Fab Tuesday Trigger - Skirting the Issue

WHOO HOO - Cath named this card as a Trigger Target!!
One Layer Wednesday time - "Make a one-layer “New Home” card using at least two different coloured inks."
Can you tell that I used the Moxie Fab Trigger to come up with the stripes and colors? That's why I LOVE challenges - Definitely that card would never have come to life without these challenges to work from. While I would never have a house with a pink front door I think it is super cute in my little "inky" world.
Here's a fun tip for ya - When you mask off an area and stamp (see above pic) sometimes it doesn't always stamp right up to the paper the way you'd like (maybe it works for you - if so - I'd like a tip from you). If you take a blender pen dipped in your ink you can kinda dab close to the mask and fill in any little gaps. Works every time!!
All supplies are from A Muse|Studio. Stamp sets used are Mad for Plaid, Hospitality House and Welcome! Inks are Latte, Grass, Bubblegum, Papaya and Orange.
BTW - If I voted on American Idol I would definitely vote for James Durbin - also - did Lady Gaga look like Carol Channing or what?! SPOOKY!

This is brilliant Michelle! I thought that was patterned paper - not stamps! Great work.

I love this card! You did such a great job!! I think I might need to invest in that mad for plaid stamp set and definitely more A/S inks. I think you might just be a Tuesday Trigger winner this week girl!! :)

What a great background you've created. I think it would be hard to line those stripes up so neatly!
