Here's today's snippets card:
- 7" x 5" white card stock
- green backing card from the snippets folder and white snippets for stamping onto
- patterned paper is a recent 'freebie' 'Lilly Bimble' acquisition from Quick Cards Made Easy magazine
- stamped image by Little Clair Designs 'Butterfly Blossom' coloured with Pro Markers and then tickled with Twinkling H2Os from the Iridescent set. Although I have most of the H2O pots, this set is so versatile for adding shimmer to already coloured images. An extra couple of butterflies were stamped and coloured to pop on top with little snippets of sticky pads and pearls were added to the flower centres
- die cut the image and backed it with another snippet of green card, cut after drawing round the outside of the same die and hand cutting it
- sentiment is from Whimsy Stamps' 'Friendship Ticket Sentiments' set, stamped in Brilliance 'Pearlescent Blue' and mounted onto green backing - which truly is centred in real life!
This is a closer view so you can see the H2O shimmer - maybe:
So, this week in the Playground - lots of lovely makes as always, and I've just picked a few to show you:
Lynn (Linby) brought this stunning lavender and lace card to show - and wahoo, it also won a place in the top five over at 'Allsorts' challenge, well done and totally deserved Lynn!
A quick whip through this week girls, but to check out what great snippets makes everyone else brought to the Playground just go here.
Last week's prize of the two sets of dies, 'Chevron Stripes' and 'Cloud Trio' by MFT, was won by:
And this week's prize is, as often is the case, connected to my snippets card:
Remember that it's the second week of the draw for the 'Lattice' folder - just enter three cards in total over the two week period to be in the draw, there are three to be won.
The Playground will run as usual this week with the gates closing at noon UK time on Saturday 13th July. Maximum of three entries and please say 'No thank you' in a comment if you wish to still play but not be a winner of this week's prize, shown above.
The Playground should be a bit safer today - Mrs A is off on a day trip to Newbury (Artstamps Craft Show), and I'm going along ........... just to make sure she doesn't wreck the place!
Mr Linky is below - hope you can come and play this week. The paddling pool is out and has warmed up nicely in the sunshine (but please get out if you need the rest room)! The diving board into the duck pond has been removed until the baby ducklings are bigger and can paddle/fly smartly out of the way :) The goat has been divested of my (now ruined) best party dress, the donkey is recovering from the shock of being used for show jumping trials and all is well - for now!
