Playground Challenge #345

Another week has rushed by and it is time to visit the Pixie Snippets Playground again - maybe there will be a snowball fight going on, given the amount of snow many of us have had this week.  I've raided my box containing snippets of card/watercolour paper etc which have been coloured when I've been in the mood for spritzing ink, dabbling with ink pads and so on and managed to find enough of some watercolour card to cut a narrow panel and to stamp and cut out a selection of flowers.  Next move was to go through my normal card scraps to find a piece to match from which I die cut an octagon border.  Luckily I had a paper pad with just a few sheets left and there was one to match so I trimmed this to size and glued to the front of the card before stamping the words and then adhering the floral panel.

If you visit the Playground you will see a couple of fun cards and no prize for guessing what one lucky person will win this week!  Do go along and see what I'm talking about and have a go to use up some of your own snippets - we all hoard every scrap don't we??

Flowers - Shaded Peony stamp set from Sue Wilson
Border - Modern Octagon die from Sue Wilson

  5. Beautiful card Val - I adore the colours! And the patterns, flowers and octagons (which remind me of trellis) all work so well together. Love it!
