Pixie Snippets 174

I'm including another of my notebook covers for this week on the Pixie Snippets challenge - lots of interesting 'picks' showing this week and a pretty daffodil card to see if you follow the link to take a look.  The journal cover started off with the addition of a piece of white card which had been inked with Distress inks and edged with gold embossing powder.  Some of the leaves were stamped onto the background and the colour removed from the leaves using water to 'lift' before colouring with a Distress Marker.  The snippets come in now with the flowers and extra leaves all having been stamped onto oddments of card, embossed and then coloured using pencils before cutting them all out with scissors.  Sadly we seem to have lost our sunshine and this morning is quite grey and dull - shame but I reckon the ground really needs a spot of rain.

Stamps used - Floral set from Sheena Douglass
