Three Snippet makes

When I make square scene cards I often end up with lots of strips of silk art card where I have cut them off an A5 piece to make the square. I thought I would have a little play with wetting my ink dusters and see what combinations I could come up with.

On each of them I used just two stamps, Willow twigs and the birds from Windswept, both from Inkylicious. I did use black soot distress ink on this last one, but all the others were from residual ink on the dusters and water. I also added some dots from glitter glue or gel pen on each one.The mats were from my snippet box too, so I think these qualify for Pixie's Crafty Snippet playground this week! Thanks for looking and I hope you managed to stay warm and dry today!

  3. Brilliant idea - the middle one just sings to me! I can't quite get over how different each one is & how super they look on the white card bases.
