Flight of Challenge (Moxie Fab Taintor-tude)
The Moxie Fab World blog is featuring a "Taintor-tude Challenge". You are to pattern your card after the work of Anne Taintor, with her ladies from the 50's with their sassy sayings. In this attempt I started with two American Art Stamps stamps, the woman with a plunger saying "Cheers"(now hidden by the rose) and the rose stamp (used as background on the pink paper). The caption reads, "Don't get excited. Everything is coming up roses because that is all I planted.". I was actually practicing making paper grunge roses and ruffles and I thought this "modern" lady in her floral print dress and Converse tennis shoes was much more suited to the theme than any "vintage" type image I could find. I'm sure you'll agree that the attitude spans the decades!
