Tuesday Trigger - Chiclectic

When I first saw the photo for this week's Tuesday Trigger, I thought no way am I going to be able to make a card.. such bold colors. But yesterday, it just came together.


This is the inspiration picture. And underneath is my card.


I used a wine label (may they live long) as it already had gold incorporated in it. The stamp is from Hero Arts called Floating Garden which I distressed and sprayed with water before I stamped direct onto the label. The background (black to match the bedspread) is also a Hero Arts Stamp, a friends definition. My thanks to the lovely Tiffany who sent me a bunch of Cameos a while back!

Now I have a KITCHEN TIP:

When using old bread to make breadcrumbs in the Food Processor for a meal, add oil and herbs to give them more flavor. These are delicious on top of a Fish dish. Source: Jamie Oliver.

A beautiful card Jacqueline. You took a very bold and busy trigger and made a soft and pretty card. Wow.

You captured the colors in the original photo beautifully--and your wine labels in the previous post and what you did with them is just sublime! Thank you for the kitchen tips, as well--I will have to try making bread crumbs in my food processor; I'm just now discovering all the wonderful things it can do!

I like how you incorporated the wine label. I really am enjoying viewing your wine label cards! The splash of pink and matching cameo are perfect!
I'm appreciative of the bread crumb tip and will certainly use it!
