Moxie Fab -Offset Scallop Gallop Challenge
Wow, it seems like another "forever" since I last posted anything here, BUT, I have been a busy crafter and will share some of my cards in a bit. For today's post I wanted to enter Moxie Fab World's Offset Scallop Gallop challenge~ You have until October 4th to upload your entry and join in the fun here: http://www.moxiefabworld.com/2010/09/moxie-fab-world-challenge-offset.html
The card for this challenge started out in a totally different direction, but ended up like this!
I have a Studio G stamp from Michael's $1 bin which has been added to my "collection of owl stamps" (don't ask!). His belly has offset scallops, but the stamp is so small, I needed to enlarge him a tad...put him on my scanner. kicked it up a notch or two and wha-lah, printed out a BIG owl. Must be low on the colored inks that make brown, so he came out on the greenish side :) I thought I would cut him out and pop him onto the printed card stock, so I was really sloppy with the sponging of brown ink~~then decided I liked his coloring that way and left it on the white cardstock. Added the offset scallops (punched on yellow and melon papers) on each side, sticking out a bit from the edge of the card. I feel this needs 'something else' and have been playing with THAT ~ but then again, less is more on some cards, huh?
Well, anywhoo, if you are still here~~THANKS for dropping by friends, I just love reading your supportive comments!
