Well here I am on a beautiful spring day. I have just come back from a little walk to the post office and I have to say it is really glorious out there. I have even got some washing dry as there is a pleasant breeze as well.
Two cards to show today one for Julia’s snippet challenge and one for a couple of others challenges.
I had decided to join in Julia’s challenge again this week and as I was going through my box of small snippets I came across not one , not two but a whole bunch of snippets which most sane people would have thrown away. They were probably no more than 1/4 in width and 5 or 6 or more inches long. The challenge than became how many of these can I use up before throwing the rest. I have managed to use 18 or so – so you can imagine how many I had!! I used some DST to anchor the green strips and then just threaded the others through . There is tacky glue on the back which has anchored it nicely and I put more DST on the edges which ahs been sprinkled with Glamour dust I found when i was tidying and which I didn’t know I had. The sentiment was stamped on another snippet and the embellishment at the bottom is a piece of paper ribbon recycled from Christmas and pleated. Two gems from a goody bag from a friend over on the Docrafts Forum.
The second card has been done for a friend and I decided to do something different.
I have used my biggest Go Create scalloped circle through my Big Shot and it has been coloured with Tattered Rose Distress Ink. The scrolls are from a set by Maya Road and have been embossed with Platinum WOW powder. The sentiment is a Hobby Art stamp I have had for a very long time and has been embossed with a gold powder which I think is a Personal Impressions one. Totally Papercrafts are calling for ‘Shaped Cards’ in their challenge and Less is More are wanting ‘Off the Page’ I think this card qualifies for both challenges so am off now to link them up.
Thanks for looking and reading.
