The black and white Tuesday Trigger

I had a few minutes to sit and play and create so the first thing I turned to for inspiration was the Tuesday Trigger at Moxie Fab.  Cath does the best job of picking out pieces that really do "trigger" inspiration I just don't always have time to play.
 I feel in  love with the black and white and brown of the piece and the strong, rather tribal look to the patterns.  I thought it also had a rather masculine look but I ended up adding in a bit of a feminine look, oh well!!!
 I started off with a wonderful stencil from Prima.  I sprayed that with a black Stephanie Barnard spray ink from Clearsnap. I love those sprays anyway and the black was just right for this challenge.  The cardstock was white so I softened that with some brown ink. The chevron piece is the Tweed background stamp from Hero Arts.  That was stamped with black and also softened with brown ink. I did cut that in a circle to mimic the circle pieces in the trigger.
 The banner die is from Paper Smooches and that beautiful sentiment is from Avery Elle.  I added in a few gold dots using Liquid Pearls, I wanted just a touch of the gold to mimic the gold pieces in the trigger. See that row of flower ribbon? I colored that with that same black spray ink. It started off yellow.
Here is that wonderful Tuesday Trigger.
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)
