Cards for Cardmakers

The current challenge on the Moxie Fab blog is to make a card inspired by the work of Anne Taintor. I actually have a Taintor book that I picked up a few years ago on a book store clearance shelf. I bought it with the idea that it might someday work its way into an altered project or something, but this hadn't happened yet. So I went through my book and the pictures were great and Taintor's captions were perfect and just when I felt like I was incapable of an original thought, I got an idea


and the rest followed



My husband walked in when I was in the middle of these and informed me that it should be spelled Paper Tray - hah!




These made for a thoroughly enjoyable afternoon!
