For the card share today, I did some alcohol ink playing on a piece of acetate salvaged from cutting apart a Spellbinder packaging (?snippet?). I had an old greeting card - and this one was very old, it was found in an old book we collected somewhere along the way...I'm guessing it may have dated to the 50's or 60's - just from its appearance.(perhaps qualifies as another snippet)! I was going to toss it, because it was very grubby. Then decided I could fussy cut just part of the front motif, where it was still ok. This happened to be a sort of abstract rose motif. I cut it out, tested it behind the alcohol inked piece of acetate. Liked how it looked when I placed it between the pink cardstock & the acetate, so hence this card.
- pink textured cardstock, lightweight, embossed with Darice Flower EF
- Spare Parts pearl brads
- sentiment stamp is SU Teeny Tiny Wishes on a S/Binders 5x7 Detailed Scallops - the smallest die - onto a snippet of white cardstock
- sentiment diecut was sponged with SU Regal Rose using a small finger sponge dauber. Added some tiny pearls to tie in with the brads.
Oh yes, I nearly forgot...I'm using a card that was purchased in a set of 10 from a discount store (The Dolloar Tree). These have been here forever, so might stretch a point and call this base a snippet too. <g>I thought this would come in handy as a card base, but the front of the card is not all that pretty. I have to cover the inside with some decorations too. It makes a nice sturdy card! Because of the brads, this one will be hand delivered. Actually even the brads came out of my stash. I had bought brads when I was first accumulating
I think I'll be off to the Playground, see what's going on ...I'm hearing that our UK friends in some areas have seen Mr. Sun out & about. Think I'll check out that rumor. Love to have you come along! Have a wonderful afternoon. Hugs
