Leftovers

Monday, December 14, 2015


No, not the food kind :)  This is a leftover background from my Holiday Coffee Lovers design last week.  Not wanting to waste my Distress Inks and Inka Gold left on my craft mat... this is my "mop up" paper.  It was flicked with water and then dried.

And, speaking of flicking, after the tree was stamped, I flicked  on some thinned white acrylic paint for a snowy effect.

Very simple and easy to do if you're still trying to get some cards completed!

The tree is from Penny Black...one of my oldest and yet still favorite stamps, and the sentiment is from Verve.

  11. What a great card Lee-Ann. Don't you just love those left over pieces. I swear they make the best cards, usually they're a little lighter than the originals, but it all just seems to work! Love all the little elements. Thanks so much for playing along at Happy Little Stampers! :)
