Yep, I've been picking cotton - at least somewhat. All the farmers around here that planted cotton are now harvesting it and there's cotton bolls everywhere! All you have to do is drive down the highway, and the road is just littered in cotton. It almost looks like snow!
Anyway, I received my little House 2 image from Hambo for playing along in their progressive challenge last week and found that the challenge this week is to use something you wouldn't normally use on a card. I was completely stumped - until I thought of all that cotton laying around on the roadside. Bright idea.......I'll make a haunted house with the image and use the cotton like spider webs hanging down! It didn't come out like I originally planned but that's ok as nothing usually does.
If you've never been around cotton, let me tell you - it's much better when you get a package of cotton balls in the store! The real stuff isn't very white at all and has all kinds of grass,sticks,weeds, and bugs stuck in it. It's really hard to work with and just sticks to everything. But here's my card with the cotton all around the main image panel (the idea here is to represent spider webs). The little ghosts are from a CTMH set and I made the gray clouds with Going Gray ink from SU. AND hubby didn't even mind getting out on the roadside and help me pick cotton!
