This week over at Isabella's Sketchbook we want to see you use your scraps ! Let's face it we've all got loads of those little pieces laying around that we don't want to throw away. So gather them together and see what you come up with ! None of the pieces can be larger than 3" x 3" except the card blank. When I saw this challenge my mind immediately went to patchwork ! The very background layer is made from 4 pieces of card stuck together and then the next layer is 9 squares that I've stuck down then sewn zig zag around the edges.
I've shaded the image, which is called Fresh Flowers, with ProMarkers and then cut it out using Labels 3 Nestabilities. The swirl is also cut from a scrap piece of Stampin' Up card using a Tim Holtz die.
I quite surprised myself with this card as I didn't use any Distress Inks !
I hope you get chance to join us this week.
Thanks for looking
