"For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts. For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater: So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it." ~ Isaiah 55: 8-11

ALL THE BEST / Tuesday Trigger - An exercise in Exotic...


I have never played along with the Moxie Fab World's Tuesday Trigger, faithfully posted by Cath - but I have lurked there, always planning to play, but always getting sidetracked...




When I saw this oh-so-tempting Tuesday Trigger, I immediately knew what I wanted to do! I 'loosely' based this card on Taylor's sketch this week - just cover up the bottom half of my card, take 4 or 5 steps back and squint... see? The sketch is sorta there!

If you pop by here often, you KNOW how much I [heart] my embossing folders! After embossing, I added some ink to the raised parts. The copper piece is fairly complicated, but I'll be doing a tutorial on that soon... I will tell you that it involved a pop can, a die, an EF, versamark, chunky copper EP, and Copics.

Thanks so much for dropping by!

What a fabulous take on this challenge! I am completely at a loss on this one, but your card is stunning! I love all of the different embossed textures, the use of metal, and the rich colors.
