A second look at the third stamp ...

Hello my lovely friends and visitors, I hope your week is going well.  As I mentioned on yesterday’s post I used the same stamp again and used a load of snippets too and here it is …

Another little A6 card
I like this cool blue and white collage-esque card

Created for me and especially for these Challenges
As You Like It Challenge Favourite Markers or Inks or Pencils & Why: 
Spectrum Aqua pens because I can use them if I’m working in a tight space and my fingers aren’t as stained when I use them than when I use my inks 
CASology Challenge #204 Row: I stamped a row of starbursts
Simon Says Stamps Monday Challenge Tic Tac Toe: stamp – stencil - spray
Simon Says Stamps Wednesday Challenge Anything Goes 
 Spectrum Noir Facebook Challenge Use a Die plus Spectrum Noir pens/products

I have been experimenting with collage for the last couple of months.  It’s a wonderful way to use up those snippets and I just love the look.  So after I stamped these flowers/bursts I knew that this blue and white stamped panel would look fabulous on a collage card.  I played around with my snippets to create this much more sedate but yummy card.  As much as I love bold bright colours there is something so soothing and so Scandinavian about this card that I have fallen in love with it lol!  More collage experiments will be going on for the next couple of months.

Thank you so much for taking the time to visit and comment.  I really do appreciate it and I hope you get some time to do what you love to do soon  ttfn Karen x
