Blue Field Poppies - A Snippet Make

Hello Everyone

I'm lagging behind with my posts this week but hoping to catch up today and tomorrow. First up is the snippet make I should have posted on Sunday for Pixie's Snippets Playground - Week 153.
The card has been made almost entirely from snippets or recycled materials. Even the topper, one of my watercolour experiments with  my current favourite stamp, Poppy Fields from Rubber Necker, and several distress inks from Ranger in shades of blue and turquoise, was made using some glossy card which is the recycled back of a card received last year ... I save way too much stuff!!!
You might be able to see ta gleam or two in this shot ... there's just the teeniest sprinkle of glitter around the flowers. No list of materials today ... most of the snippets used are so old I couldn't even venture a guess as to where they came from. What I can tell you is that I recycled the greeting from a birthday card received sometime in the last couple of years and trimmed it to a pennant shape for this card.

And that's me done posting for today. I hope to be back with another share tomorrow. In the meantime, I wish you all a lovely evening.

Happy Crafting,

Beautiful blue poppies, Elizabeth! Good for you to recycle! It's good for the earth and the pocketbook!

Oh my Elizabeth! I love that stamp I want it/I need it/I have to have it!
I especially love how you have coloured it and I can't figure out how you did it which is really frustrating lol! I've seen the stamp on Elaine's blog so I must check it out on Oyster's online shop! I thought I was bad hoarding/recycling stuff but you sound worse than me - we crafters are dreadful at doing that! Karen x

A wonderful card Elizabeth. I like the whimsy flower image. It is fun making cards out of random left over papers.
