Here are a couple of cards I have just finished off, and are eligible for Di's crafty snippet challenge. The first is for the son of a friend of mine. I can't believe he is 18 already. He is a travel loving, trumpet playing rugby player, and you can't find those all together on a card in the shops!
Bless him, he needed a suit to go for an interview and the only suit he had was a scuba diving one! The rest of his wardrobe is jeans, so hopefully this grungy card will go down well! The background was created with distress inks in brushed corduroy and broken china.
My second card is for the niece of a colleague.
this used up quite a lot of snippets, including a piece of ribbon, some scraps of black and some more Pink Petticoat paper. The lovely key charm was copper coloured originally, but didn't look right so I coloured it with a silver leaf pen. The dress is made using a set of artistic impression stamps and was inspired by one in Meg's wardrobe!
Sorry if I gave the impression a couple of weeks ago that I had used all my snippets (can you hear my hubby laughing hysterically?!) I had just used up those particular papers - there is a good few kilos left to go!
I'm off to the snippet playground with both of these, my skipping rope and a bag of cherry lips, but you won't catch me sitting on the swings after all the rain we have had! I'm hoping the duckpond hasn't turned into a lake!
Thanks for looking!
