August Blog Hop!

Welcome! If you arrived here from Linda's Blog then you've come to the right place!

This month's features are the colors or use  of the new Mischief Papers!
and our new Stamp of the Month….Wicked!
Well... I didn't have either yet, but was able to borrow and stamp some images from a friend….
So while I did use Black and Sunset, I used a carry-over stamp set from the Spring/Summer Catalog that is now in the new Autumn/Winter catalog…
Stamp set used: C1423 Captured Moments
and also The Present D1436
They both have great textures you can use for any theme.
(disclosure: do not start with your largest object first! 
I am not happy that it's huge by comparison to the images. failure!)
I used a scrap of our Wings Level 2 Assortment Z1398 Black pleated ribbon around a hydrangea rolled rose. 

I cut a mask from a post-it note, then  on a 1.5 x 1.5 square of Col. White stamped the image, then sponged with the reverse mask. When I went to sponge some clouds in, my grey was green! ack! failure!
Ok, so after a few excuses…here it is!
Now for heaven's sake, hop on over to Pam's Blog so she can WOW you!

I really like how you broke up the Captured Moments stamp and made it look like 2 stamps. Very clever! Love this card!
