As always Di has made us a super card as inspiration for using up snippets and has given us her usual detailed and helpful description of how it was achieved. You can see it and details of the great prize on offer if you go HERE. For my card this week I've used up some narrow snippets of watercolour card which had been coloured using Pixie Powders - yes my current favourite thing!! I also die cut some flowers from snippets of black but when doing this I was careful to place the dies so that the 'waste' piece of black could be used to make another card which I will post at some point soon. I know we all hate to throw away bits and pieces of card and paper and with a little forward planning you can accumulate even more useful 'snippets' - it gets to be a bit of an obsession I fear!! More snippets were used to die cut the sentiment panel and the background was a larger snippet embossed and sponged with Distress ink.
