Earlier this week I noticed that my bin of paper scraps was very full. Seeing the overrun bin made me realize that I need to start using up some of those scraps. Today I am sharing a card made entirely from those "forgotten items" in my crafty space.
First scrap piece used was a nice sheet of Kraft. Tim Holtz' Lace Stencil was used with Distress Paints in Mowed Lawn, Tumbled Glass, Scattered Straw and Picket Fence. The paint was chosen so that the background would be more muted than if I had used my texture paste with reinkers. Mowed Lawn was applied along the bottom edge of the paper, dried and then texture pasted with Tim Holtz' Burlap stencil. Vintage Photo Distress Ink was used on the edges.
A wee piece of corrugate was in the bin (wow...I save everything!). Picket Fence and Tumbled Glass Distress paints brightened up the corrugate. A scrap piece of woodgrain paper had Tim Holtz' sentiment stamped using Jet Black Archival Ink.
The scrap piece of seam binding was dyed using Scattered Straw Distress Stain. The crinkle ribbon was topped off with coordinating twine and a small half gem that I totally forgot I had.
Hope you liked the card! Of course it was fun to make and a perfect excuse to use up those forgotten items.
Thanks for stopping by and have a happy, crafty day!
