Moxie Fab World Hip on Handwriting


Hi Folks! Here's a card for the Moxie Fab World Hip on Handwriting Challenge.  Doing this with a paintbrush and paint, as is such the hot trend this year, would be ideal. But I don't have a small enough and controllable brush for lettering this small. So marker it is. And a fuchsia one at that. The letter loops are colored in with alcohol markers, and the stars are from winnie & walter Scenery: Big, Bang Confetti. For a few of the solid stars I sketched an outline over them with a darker marker.


A Sakura gelly roll pen that I've had for years (which I assume is the equivalent to the Wink of Stella marker) adds some sparkle and shine to the markered insides. I was going for the dreamy, whimsical look, which is well outside my comfort zone : )

I sincerely hope everyone has a wonderful Mother's day with your family, your Mom, your Grandma, or whoever you celebrate with. Mom's totally rock!

  9. Fabulous card. It seems to groundbreaking to actually write on a card, rather than stamp--but it reminds me of the days before I had heard of 'card making' and my girls would just make birthday cards with their crayons and construction paper. Fab picture of you and your mom.
