Using up scraps

Its been a busy week-end but not very crafty.   Getting a little play time now and am sharing this card with you.

Less is More this week want us to use some of our scrap stash.   Quite my scraps are over spray or inking, kitchen paper used to mop up colour spills or used and dried out acrylic pallet paper sheets.   These get cut and stored to wait for their day.   A selection of such have been used here.    Was not sure where this would go just knew I wanted an explosion of colour leaping out from the white background.   Re-discovering all these Tattered flowers and a strip of Basic Grey left over from something or other and the design laid itself out.

  14. Hiya Zoe, this looks fabulous. The explosion of colour looks great against the white. I keep all my scraps and then never use them, I should really get them out. Maria x
