USING YOUR LEFT-OVER PAPERS, CARD AND EMBELLISHMENTS

Hello and thanks for stopping by....

I have a 6" square, white base card today and I added a panel of copper bronze card to it

The spotted paper was left over from a previous card, as was the embossed white card.  I only had to cut both pieces to size for this card

I coloured the rose using one red and one orange water pencil and used two different green water pencils for the leaves

I covered the entire flower and leaves with a clear glaze and when it was completely dry I couldn't resist adding Clear Nuvo Drops to several areas

The sentiment had been previously stamped with, I think, an Archival Ink Pad in 'coffee' and I dabbed the edges with a smoothie that was already inked from a previous project

I do try to make a batch of products and card bases but must start identifying them before I stack them in the appropriate containers!

I also try to make at least two of the same card as I donate to several charities

You will see this flower again in a week or so when I post my card for the new design team I'm also on.... you may not recognise it! LOL
