Pixie's Snippets Playground - Challenge #403

Time for another challenge over in the Snippets Playground and this time there is a clever card from Liz who is a regular playmate.  This showcases the super useful prize which is on offer this time, especially if you struggle with masculine cards.  Well worth taking a look and maybe having a go yourself - you will also use up some of your snippets - something we all seem to have loads of. My card has been made entirely from snippets apart from the base card blank.

It always interests me to see how different techniques seem to 'go the rounds' now and then before disappearing for a while, only to return once again.  Something which seems to be in the limelight at the moment is stamping onto coloured card, embossing with white and then colouring using watercolour pencils.  This is what I've done using a scrap of beige card which, once coloured, has been die cut and layered onto a piece of toning pink.  More toning snippets have been used to add other elements to the design and that's my dabble into the white embossed watercolour technique for today.
