The challenge this week over at Less Is More is "Don't scrap it". Now! there is a challenge - who hasn't got loads of scraps. But I think for me the challenge was - which scraps. Here is the result of my decision
and here is the "scrap" that I went through to see what I would use
After some good searching & trying things together I reduced it to this
I used to do quite a bit of quilling & was surprised to see the little rose in the box not yet used. It seemed to go quite well with the coloured card. That card is one piece of a selection that I had created some time ago on a "play day" with Caroline. We were using different inks & those tools with either a white or black shaped head on a double ended black handle. The black head could be heated to impress things into it. It's no good I am going to have to pop off & get their correct name I won't be long ............ Colour Box Stylus System from Clearsnap.
Having done some searching through the box & definitely being in a less is more state of mind I made one more card as I just had to use that pink aperture card. It was a scrap item, as at some time or other I had used the third that usually folds behind the aperture. I went to a box where I keep topper material for quick cards & found a lovely little spray of pink flowers. Here is the card
The little "smudge" to the side of the sentiment is actually a little bird with a flourish style tail - but it is covering an actual smudge. I broke the cardinal rule of stamping - always make sure there is no ink on the rubber surrounding the image, & if there is - wipe it off. No! I stamped it straight down & potentially a spoilt card, but by stamping the bird in same colour as the sentiment the card is saved. Phew!
Now to search amongst some cd papers that I have in a box & enter the challenge over at CD Sunday.
Thank you for stopping by I look forward to your next visit.
