Welcome to today's blog post. Today I am sharing a quick and easy way of using your scraps. I often have piece of cardstock where I test ink colours and effects on. These then become card backgrounds or I use them on my layouts cut into tags and even die-cut shapes out of them. Today I am showing you how I use it as a quick card background.
For this card I am using two stamp sets combined Gather Together and Fall Greetings
I used a test piece of cardstock that was embossed and then color added over the embossing. I then cut it into smaller pieces and this piece was left-over. Some nice color on the one side and clean and simple on the other. I stamped my sentiment from the Gather Together set in the top right hand corner, and then a leaf from the Fall Greetings set. The leaves are colour with my markers.
Some ink and paint splats finishes off this Clean and Simple card using these sets combined for a gorgeous look. Nothing ever gets wasted and even a piece that looks ugly can be turned into a gorgeous card.
Until Next time - remember God always takes the unwanted and imperfect and turns it into something NEW and beautiful! Blessings Jowilna x
