Tuesday Trigger: Simple Elegance

I decided to play a new challenge this week.  The one over at the Moxie Fab blog that uses a photo as inspiration.   

I decided to use both the color palette and the damask pattern of the rug.  I've had the Antique Brocade stamp from Hero Arts for awhile and I thought it just needed to get inky.   Loved the pop of pink mixed with the white and kraft-ish color.


Kraft (crumb cake) and white cardstock is Stampin' Up!  Green for the leaves is from a scrap in my scrap pile. The brocade is stamped in crumb cake ink.  The flower is the Little Stencil Flower by Hero Arts...I used a Marvy marker to ink it up and then used my Prisma pencils to add shading and depth after stamping. Sentiment embossed in white is by Savvy.  Seam binding is crumb cake by SU!, twine is the new Flax from the Twinery and the button is from A Muse.

Thanks for peeking!
