Craft-Room Challenge - Use your scraps

Oh Whoops well no surprise with this post maybe sorry been a while since i dropped this size clanger LOL.

Finally a sunny week-end did you enjoy it?

We have a great new challenge for you this time at Craft-Room challenge hosted by Esther and sponsored by Stamp Addicts.









The theme this time is Use Your Scraps.  Some of us don't keep their scraps this was a bit of a problem for a couple of the team which they overcame with style and flair.   Others of us probably keep to many of our scraps and this is a great opportunity to use them up.

I fall into the too many group, which caused it's own problem which to use and what to do with them!    Solved with a piece of watercolour board some torn papers (you might spot some left over from the last C-R challenge) kitchen towel used to clean Gelli pad.   Left over card from a die cut, and a previously used mask on eclipse paper.   The die cut butterfly, ket and birdcage are also scraps left from projects that they did not work out for.   Having made my arrangement and glued it down, DI vintage photo blended over the top with my wonderful ink dusters.   To completely tie it all together some of the design lines and crease lines were marked with quickie pen glue and then covered with gilding flakes in a sort of marble marking.

If you have a scrap or two to use up and it fits your project then please share it with us, just tell us what the scrap is!   The team being much more sensible than me have made wonderful samples with their scraps give them some love please.
