Happy Monday Everyone,
I hope you are all well and enjoying a bit more sunshine than we have up in these parts today ... that's none! The bit of sky we can see peeking through the clouds is blue enough but the sun is clearly struggling to break through and failing miserably :(
That makes it a day suitable for staying in and crafting ... there's always a silver lining :) So I have a quick snippet make, the first for Pixie's Crafty Snippet Playground this week, to share with you.
Firstly, I punched three 1" squares from the marbled card, taking care to punch around one of the tiny embossed dragonflies. A scrap of lilac card was then trimmed to measure just about 1/16" larger all round - just big enough to mat the dragonfly squares on.
I then stamped a scroll from Dawn Bibby's Delicate Scroll stamp set, inking it up in a combination of the following inks, Tim Holtz distress inks, Shabby Shutters & Peeled Paint; Memento Dual Marker, Bamboo Leaves & Pear Tart on to a white 4" square card base. And using the same stamp and colours the inside and back were stamped too.
Finally, the dragonfly squares were glued in place over the stamped scroll.
Oh, ho! The sun is struggling through ... it could turn out to be very nice after all!
Off to have some lunch and maybe a wander round the garden. I see the doves are waiting expectantly for the EM to appear with lunch too :))
Have a great afternoon everyone and happy crafting,
