Week of Snippets #2 ...

Hello my lovely friends and visitors, I hope your weekend is going well. I’ve dived into the snippets bag and have this card to share with you today …

Another 148mm square card
I adore these sweet birdies
All the lovely details and texture
A final look

Created for me and especially for these Challenges

Creative Artiste Challenge #38 Anything Mixed Media Goes

Love to Create Challenge #8 Mixed Media Anything Goes
Love to Scrap Challenge LTSCB #109 Anything Goes
Mix It Up Challenge Blog MIUCB#13 Anything Goes

I used a snippet of background card that I had applied texture paste to through a DecoArt stencil, a patterned paper snippet was die cut into a scalloped oval for matting, the bird was stamped onto a white snippet then coloured with Spectrum Noir Sparkle pens, the oval the bird is adhered to was a white snippet that I have coloured with distress inks to give the look of ombre. Four more snippets used and my bags of snippets and stamped images aren’t bulging quite so much already today! I really hope I can keep this up for the whole week and shrink those piles mightily 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. Enjoy the rest of your weekend too ttfn Karen x
