This month’s challenge on KCUK is to use something new, unused or new to you and/or something you’ve had for ages.
Continuing my mission to use up scraps, I used some of my stash of backgrounds to make my cards, with new and not so new images.
The first one is a set of stamps from Eco Green that I’ve had for quite a while but never used because I wasn’t sure I liked them once I’d got them. I used three of them on this card, along with a text stamp, a scrap of swirly rubber and a postmark stamp I’ve had for ages. The background is water colour paper and Ecoline inks.
The second one uses a similar background, two new images and some Dylusions words I’ve had for a while. I don’t think I’ve used this one before, so it was uninked until now. I fell in love with the girls when I saw them on Vada’s Blog, here – I love the way she used it, too. Once I’d scanned this, I realised I’d missed cutting out part of the image between two of the girls but too late to do anything about it now. The next one is nicely cut out already!
I’m entering the second one into this month’s Chestnut Theme Challenge at Gingersnaps, which is Words of Wisdom.
Do you ever think you may be a little obsessed with one particular colour family? I was washing my short sleeved t-shirts yesterday, ready for the Spring weather I’m hoping for when I realised just how bad I’ve become– partly because I was trying to find the perfect match for one particular skirt, but this is a bit OTT!
The weather’s back to normal in the not so sunny North West of England – grey and wet, although the sun is trying to peek through the clouds. Let’s hope he comes out to play!
Enjoy your weekend!
