Snippety Wings and Flowers ...

Hello my lovely friends and visitors, I hope your week was a good one and you have awesome weekend plans.  I am still trying to shrink my snippets pile in between wedding invitations and I’m hoping this weekend I’ll get the final sign off so I can order the supplies and get to cutting and sticking!  So here is today’s snippety card …

A little C6 card
I had to show the side view separately because I captured the shimmer!!!
I had to show it again, lol, the shimmer is beautiful and from a clear Spectrum Noir Sparkle pen
A final look

Created for me and especially for these Challenges

Scrapy Land Challenge #50 Birthday: I used Crafters Companion dies
The Pencil Case Challenge #28 Anything Goes
The Ribbon Girl Challenge September Any Image Any Project 

Lots of pearl card snippets, Kraft card snippets and Sheena Douglass card snippets were used to create this card.  I experimented on some Kraft card snippets using my Tim Holtz stencil and Pebeo Dyna paints – love those paints they have lovely shimmer.  I die cut the flowers from card that I had coloured with H2O paints.  The border, the die cut and stamped butterflies were snippets from playing with my Spectrum Noir AquaTints.  After I stamped the butterflies onto AquaTints I fussy cut them and attached them to the C6 card with Washi tape before stamping the body and antenna with black Versafine IP.  I removed the butterflies and then stamped the hearts and sentiment using a Distress IP.  I added the butterflies and attached their bodies to the card and then curled them with my fingers so that they aren’t completely flat.  I had a last snippet of rainbow card which I glued in position and added the ribbon at the top and bottom.  I then played around with the die cuts and once happy with the position I glued them in place simples yet fun to do.

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
