Soft beige - Bright green

Gotta share a couple cards.
First up is the Moxie Fab Tuesday Trigger for this week.


I love the soft and subtle little scene with beige, a touch of pink, a touch of black and a touch of green.  I wanted to do something that would give my card that same soft light brown/beige background like in the rug.  I used a stencil from Crafter's Workshop. I rubbed it with a Distress brown ink.  I also used a text stencil and sprayed that with some brown and pink Chalkboard mist.  I like that I can make a random pattern with the stencil. 


I used a stamp set by Waltzing Mouse.  I used two layers of doily stamps from the set.  The pink layer is my brand new Martha Stewart punch and the leaf pieces are leftovers that were cut with a Cricut cartridge.


And now for the Unscripted sketch for this week. I turned the sketch upside down for my card.  I also changed the size/shape of my card.  The piggyback challenge this week is to use green. 

I think this is my favorite shade of green and I love it with black.  This sentiment is cut from the Martha Stewart Elegant Cake cartridge. 



The central image is cut with a Cricut cartridge. I liked that it has a quilt look. I cut out the first layer from a piece I had stamped with a Hero Arts stamp. Then I cut the outline layer from black cardstock. The butterfly is a punch.
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)
