Snippets Playground

 Off to visit the Snippets Playground for the latest challenge - worth following the link for a visit to see the lovely inspiration card which showcases the prize which will be won by the  lucky entrant whose name comes out of the 'hat'.  Everything apart from the base card has come from my collection of leftovers although I do think that 'snippets' is a nicer name for them.  I started with a piece  of white card slightly smaller than the base card and stencilled a leafy area before finding smaller snippets of heavy watercolour paper to die cut the  coneflowers which I then coloured with Distress inks.  The vase was stamped and die cut, using another snippet.  The final touch was a sentiment left over from another project for which I'd printed a few in varying sizes so that I could use the most appropriate.  A tiny scrap of pink card was added to highlight the sdentiment and pick up the colours of the flower petals.  

Stencil - from Lavinia Stamps
Coneflowers - unbranded die
Vase - stamp and die from Stampin' Up Boho Indigo (retired)
Sentiment - produced on computer using Word

  2. Hi Val,
    this is such a very lovely way to use up snippets and I agree a better name to call our leftovers.
