April tag #3 aka crackles & snippets ...

Hello my lovely friends and visitors, I hope your week is going well. I’m experimenting once again and here is the end result …

I am loving the teal, orange and green colours right now!
Depth and texture
The stunning flower stamp
Lots of shimmer too

Created for me and especially for these Challenges
Creatalicious Challenge #136 Anything Goes

I was experimenting with the no line stamping technique and creating a collage background. This background turned out even better than previous ones so I have to say I am really happy about that fact and more collages will be seen in future because they are a great way to use up those little left over snippets from other projects. The difference in the peony today and the peony on this tag, don’t you just love that just by changing the ink colour you can do that lol! 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
