Despite my misgivings that I'd left it too late, we do have another lovely Guest Designer this fortnight - Viv of 'Viv's Visuals' kindly emailed me and offered to take up the baton so I'm extra delighted! And this is the snippets card she made:
This is what she said about her card:
The stamp is from Technique Tuesday. Stamped and white embossed on a scrap of watercolour card. Coloured with Peacock Feathers Oxide then fussy cut the flower heads.
Another oddment of watercolour card and stamped and embossed the Cosmos flowers again. I then washed part of it with the same ink using lots of water to dilute to create my background and positioned the stitched die frame (a leftover!) over it, before popping on the flowers with foam pads
The stitched rectangular piece was just another odd bit on the desk so I used it! Finished it off with some liquid pearls in the centre of the flowers and a couple of bits of bling.
And here's a bit about Viv herself, and it's another very happy photo as well:
"I live in the North West of England with my poor long suffering other half who puts up with my passion for crafting!
I've been crafting for a long time and have dabbled in all kinds of things from Mixed Media to CAS. I don't think I have a particular style that I can say is my favourite although whatever I am making, stamps and inks always feature somewhere.
Am happy to be here this week in the GDT spot and hope you like my card!"
A really quick scamper through the fortnight's picks as I had a flare-up with the back a couple of days ago, thankfully it seems to be under control - thanks to enough pills to sink a battleship!
And - it's pure coincidence that the three picks are centred around shades of blue as well.
We had no new Playmates this fortnight but we did have 56 entries, which is still very healthy.
Well done Katrina! Do please send me your address, with full name at the top so I can copy and paste - for speed and ease, and also because I don't keep addresses of previous winners although am sure this is your first win :) I'll be off to the Post Office on Tuesday if I hear from you in time. Please put Playground Winner or similar in the subject line of your email in case it drops into my junk mail. Email address is on RH sidebar as always.
Remember folks, there's still almost another week to run on Challenge #324 HERE. The prize is a Clarity 'You Hung The Moon' stamp set, as well as a Whimsy 'FaDoodles 2' set of stamps and they both make up a single prize.
Love from the little white peril Parsnip - and of course me,
