A Tribute To Mellow Moss
I decided to play this week's Scrapmaster's Paradise Colour Challenge as a tribute to Mellow Moss being retired. I love Mellow Moss and will miss it dearly. Thankfully I was able to stock up on some for future use - not so lucky with the Sage Shadow :( I haven't been able to participate in Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch for some time, so this was a great opportunity to combine it with this colour challenge :)
I tripped across this fabulous Stampendous butterfly image and decided to use it for the sketch. However, after stamping and cutting it out with my Nesties, I realized just how big this image is! I have seen this stamp in a smaller version and for some reason, I keep thinking this is the one I have (brain cells aren't what they used to be LOL!) Anyway, since trimming the image wasn't an option, I had to enlarge my card size so everything fit. I scored the moss panel a bit, and now that I look at it in the picture, I'm not so sure I like it. The corners needed something so I hemmed in the butterfly with the corner tabs. Fudged a bit by using some black in the corners, so hopefully I qualifies as a neutral and I won't get called out by the challenge police.
To top off a wonderful day, I was pleasantly surprised to discover this card was selected as one of Just Add Ink's colour challenge #21 top picks :) With that fresh in my mind, I'm off to work on my sample card for next week's Curtain Call Colour Challenge. See you soon :)
