Playground Challenge #380

Time to visit Pixie's Crafty Workshop for the new challenge and this card has used up quite a few snippets but of course the pile doesn't appear to have diminished.  The little bird and branch come as one die so I cut it out in four different snippets of card then set about chopping it up so that I could re-assemble it. Found a snippet of white and coloured that lightly by smooshing into some Distress Oxide ink and water, followed by stamping a few 'blobs' with matching ink.  This was cut into a circle and then another kraft circle was cut and made into a frame before attaching the branch. A snippet of pink card was embossed and layered with yet another snippet of kraft.  All in turn layered onto a stray piece of background paper from my stash.  Finally a punched sentiment and a couple of tiny corners were added.  Apart from the base card everything else here is from my snippets collection.

Do take a look at the super card which Di has made for us to showcase the prize - some unusual balloon stamps with matching dies - they look like a fun addition to anyone's stash.

Circles - Sizzix dies
Sentiment - computer generated, Stampin' Up punches
Corners - SU punch
Bird - die from Hunky Dory
Embossing Folder - from Hunky Dory
