I was lurking the other day at the Papertrey ink's forum and the thread I was looking at was talking about the new challenge that Becky Ohlers started called compose a card so I thought this week I would play along. So I go on over to Becky's blog to check it out and this is what I find.........
Okay no big deal.... true black....check, ripe avocado ....check, white.... check, vintage button... check, satin ribbon.... check, negative/reverse stamp... umm - no. Can you believe I don't own a negative/ reverse stamp!!??! So what am I going to do? I say to myself.... Fake it :) So shhhhh don't tell Becky that that is not an awesome in bloom negative/reverse stamp stamped in true black.... it's our secret.... I don't think she'll notice... okay??:)
So this is what I came up with.........
I am really not sure if I know the rules to this compose a card challenge. I am probably disqualifying myself for
not having a negative/reverse stamp.
I guess I just wanted to do my own twist and seen as how I already disqualified myself I just played with it.
This color combo was new to me because ..well.. there is no pink...and no aqua mist.....and no spring moss:)
Actually it was good for me to get out of my box a bit. I did one of those layered butterflies that I have been seeing lately and I used my stain ribbon for the butterfly trail.... ummm it is a little thicker that your average butterfly trail but hey I was just playing around!! We are talking a bit of whimsy here!! I just twisted & turned & glued down here and there to make it. I used my button for an accent on the butterfly. I also just realized that this is the first long card I have ever made!!! Wow I am really coming out of the box tonight!!!
So anyway I tried and Thanks Becky for a new take on challenges.... I think I really like it!!
As always.... Thanks for looking and have a great day!!!
