Moxie Fab World The Movement Challenge

Slowly continuing my quest to make it through all 5 of the Moxie Fab Card Design Handbook challenges!   Each Moxie Fab challenge highlights a specific design principle from the issue.  Cards for asymmetry and repetition are done, and today I'm trying out movement for the Moxie Fab World's Movement Challenge! {Seriously consider getting the Card Design Handbook if you haven't already done so!  So much great info!}  My projects were so easy this time that I did 2 different versions.  


This first card could not get simpler. The chevron stamp is pretty easy to line up so I didn't have to use any masking to get this done.  


For this second card, I used the same chevron stamp but masked it this time.  Depending on the application, I use a variety of "papers" for masking.  This time I tried to use my Post-It tape.  This tape is slightly thicker than regular Post-It notes and copy paper.  Depending on the stamp, the thickness can cause an incomplete stamped image.  This was the case for the chevron stamp (see the gaps where the image meets the tape).  Usually when this happens, I start over.  This time though, I removed the mask and actually liked the mistake better!  I like the "feathery" feel:)



Hopefully, I can get through the rest of the Moxie Fab Card Design Handbook challenges before they end on the 24th!  Thanks so much for stopping by!  I don't say it enough, but your visits and comments are always appreciated!    

Mahalo!

  7. They are both so different but super in their own ways. I love the first one and really want to know if you played around with the lineup of the colors before you started or did you wing it? Is it that light blue in the background that makes the images move? I can't quite put my finger on it.

  12. Happy mistakes are the best! Those edges definitely look feathery and also kind of mirror the curve around the sentiment. Really really awesome stuff, JJ! Hope you're having a fabulous week!

  18. Yes, yes, yes!! I love both of these! The first is so super cool, and the next one is quirky with the feathered edge. I just adore it. More, please : )

  19. These are both fab! I love the way the first card's chevrons overlap - and the feathered edges on the second totally work! I love it when the 'accident' ends up creating an unexpected great effect :)
