Today I have created a card from the scraps that were left on my desk.
The only item not recycled from the scraps on my desk is the card blank.
The background piece and the aperture piece are all from leftovers on my desk. These are the pieces that I brayered excess paint onto that was left over on my brayer.
The Cityscape die cut piece was a small piece left over on my desk that I pieced together to fit the aperture, again set on a background that was leftover paint on my brayer. The heart was also left over on my desk so I just added a touch of colour to coordinate with the leftovers.
I added a Quote Chip and added some random stitching for added texture.
I added touches of brayered Distress Paint to the card blank to coordinate with the focal imagery and added some Chatter Tape for added interest along with a touch of stencilling using the Linen Stencil and Black Soot Distress Ink.
I was so pleased I did not just bin these leftovers!

Have a lovely day. Tracy x x

Amazing what can be done just with "scraps", wonderful design that came together just beautifully!!

How clever to bring your scraps together and create such a fabulous design. Brilliantly done Tracy and so much better than hiding the bits and pieces in little tubs which is what I seem to do xxx
