I have a box which is just full of bits, all those bits that you don’t throw away because you might find a use for them one day. That box is now getting over full, almost to the point where the lid will not close. So I decided it was time to raid the box and purely by chance I found some bits I could use with my already coloured image.
The backing paper fills the circle and is a bit of mop up paper from a Brushos session. I think I just dabbed the paper repeatedly on my craft mat to use up the Brusho paint that was still on it. The camera has not really picked up all the colours except the darker parts in the top left section. It acutally has a very subtle mottled colouring of purple, pinky purple and some yellow on it.
The black circle frame and the heart were cut for a project and then discarded as not needed. Although the roses in the heart are more pink than purple it doees work for the project.
Once I had assembled all the elements the card did look a bit flat so I added the gems to give it some dmension.
I also made a couple of ATC’s with smaller versions of the image I had printed out to practice on, that used up a couple more bits.
Thanks for stopping by. Take care.
