Moxie Monday!

Happy Monday! Today I just felt like stamping.....not much else. I wanted to throw retro/vintage images together with a modern layout design. Kinda fun! This is the "Bicycle Life" set from Cornish Heritage Farms. I love these vintage bikes! I stamped them randomly in gray, orange, turquoise and ultramarine versacraft ink on light blue card stock.
Sometimes these clean design are the hardest to get the balance right. I tried to make sure that my darkest color (ultra marine) showed up 3 times. The sentiment, bike and the chipboard button (one of my favorites from Jenni Bowlin).
When doing a clean design you also want to keep in mind where your eye moves on your layout. Here I wanted my eye to start in the top left and keep moving down to the bottom right...this is why I stamped my lightest color in the middle so that my eye would keep moving.
I played along in the MOXIE FAB WORLD challenge.....as I couldn't pass up on playing with the bicycle theme!
Hope you all had a great weekend!
