Cabbage???

I am sure all of you know about the Tuesday Trigger on the Moxie Fab World Blog. I have been a stalker for a while and took the plunge a few weeks ago. This week was so much fun I just couldn't resist. Who would have thought cabbage could be so much fun and so inspiring. Here is the picture I coupled this with the CPS sketch
Here is the results
Okay before I get to the details, I have to say this card was also inspired by Heather's PTI blog post. She is amazing with kraft and I loved the effect she achieved with the new PTI inks and a brayer, so I had to give it a try. You can see her post here.

As you know PTI has not updated their purples yet, so I had to use my colorbox chalk que inks to get the different purple hues. I did the purple first and then the green and the PTI ink was a dream with the brayer. I am sure I will be trying this many more times to come. After brayering I stamped the polka dots from PTI thinking they might look like stars, but I think it actually looks like snow. The tree is from father knows best another pti set.
I then emobssed the sentiment from with sympathy. The little strips are the purple brayered on kraft again and then the pti set background basics diamonds for the finish look. It was finished with some direct to paper snow white.
It's a good lfie!
