Snippets Challenge # 394

 There has been a slight change in the way the Pixie Snippet Challenge works so do pop over to read all about it and to see the super card made by Jane as inspiration for the prize which she has kindly donated.

I recently made a perpetual calendar using a die set and this involved cutting into several sheets of purple card and printed papers to gather all the components together, thus leaving me with lots of snippets, some of which have been used on this first challenge card of 2021 in the Playground. There was a large snippet of card and also one of the paper so I was able to use them for the base squares and then it was a case of deciding what I could do with the selection of smaller pieces.  The feather was die cut and the two really tiny snippets for the 'eye' came from my oddments box of blues. Layers and banners were cut and assembled; sentiment stamped onto the feather panel using the Misti and that was job done although I do still have more of the purple and mauve snippets to use in other projects.

Square dies - Tonic
Feather - die from Sizzix
Sentiment - magazine freebie
Printed Paper - printed onto pearl paper using Artylicious Essence of Nature CD
Banners - dies from Creative Expressions

  4. Hi Val

    A great card .. .. and brilliant use of snippets.

    Are you like me though and use your snippets only to end up with another pile .. .. just smaller than the original ones? LOL!!!

    Love Jules xx
