Twilight Tuesday and CC239

My friend Holly introduced me to this site,Twilight Tuesday Inspiration Challenge. After blowing off peoples opinions of the Twilight book series I decided to read them for myself one day when my daughter brought home the first book. Totally not my type of book but what can I say, I was hooked! Team Edward all the way :) I'm always looking for challenges that get me thinking outside of my comfort zone so I figured I'd give this one a shot! I also combined it with this weeks color challenge over at Splitcoast.

The challenge was to create a craft based on one of the homes discussed in the series, or just what home means to you. As soon as I read the challenge I knew what I wanted to do. I've had this stamp since about 1993 and I thought it would be perfect for representing Edward and Bellas cottage in the woods, which was given to them as a wedding present. I was going for something that would blend in with its surroundings and not stand out.

The color challenge was to use mellow moss, white and kraft(or a similar color). I ran out of kraft so I used close to cocoa instead. I figured it was close enough :)

As always, thanks for looking!

Supplies are all SU unless otherwise noted:
Stamps: main image unknown, Small Sayings
Paper: Mellow Moss, Whisper White, Close to Cocoa, watercolor paper
Ink: various SU colors
Accessories: CB Swiss Dots folder, aquapainter,blender pen, scallop border punch,dimensionals,Mellow Moss ribbon
