Yet again the week has rushed by and it is time for the challenge in the Pixie Snippets Playground. I was tempted to treat myself to a stamp when I paid a brief visit to a local woodworking and hobby show where there were various craft demonstrations to see and of course plenty of temptation, some of which I managed to resist but not all I must confess. I thought this stamp would be just right for the Playground so it was stamped onto three different scraps of printed papers and the many pieces cut out with scissors before being adhered to the image printed onto a snippet of white card. This was in turn layered onto a snippet of green. The background was made up from oddments of printed papers of the same design but in two different colours (the same paper as for the flower). I actually ended up crawling around the floor on hands and knees part way through making this card, having dropped the tiny clear sentiment stamp ... they bounce ... but I eventually found it!!
The layout for this card is loosely based on a sketch spotted on Always With a Heart a great blog to view if you get stuck for layout ideas - thanks Jules. Di has made a Snippets card this week using a so cute set of hedgehog stamps with matching dies which will be the prize for one lucky entrant.
