Garden Treaure

Hello All,

I got to play in the loft again!! Whoop Whoop!!

Once again I am attacking the scrap pile ... I honestly think I will be doing that for the rest of my life. I have been so good and have been diligently working away at them for months, and as yet there is no visible dent!

I coloured up this fabulous Saturated Canary image, and I have used copics and prisma's .... I also played with my new favorite toy, a couple of franntage sets that fell in my basket the other day! Everything has been distressed with "Aged Mahogany - distress ink"  I have added a few bits of washi tape too, and then rubbed some gesso on various places.

This is my entry for:

Saturated Canary - Anything Goes
My Time to Craft - Stitching
Pennys Paper Craft - Use a sentiment
Stamping for the Weekend - Friendship
One Stop Craft - Not square
Allsorts - passion for flowers
Sister Act - Anything Goes

Thanks for looking
Hugs Juls


  1. Hi Juls, good to see you again and with an amazing card. Love all the little details.

    You are being good about using your scraps. I've taken a bit of a scunner to mine and it wouldn't take much for me to throw them out! I'm so into CAS and Stampin' Up! products just now that I'm not using much DP anyway.

    Hope Kezia's doing well.

  18. Hi Juls

    Brilliant use of your snippets .. .. sounds like you have collected as many as I have!!

    The annoying part is when you use some of your snippets and then get left with even smaller ones!! I can't even throw those away!! LOL!!

    Love your cute image and great colour combo.

    Have a good day.

    Love Jules xx
