Armistice Day for the UK. I've used a poppy stamp that hadn't yet seen ink and stamped onto a snippet of white card, cutting around it with a distressed die with the two parts of the image that overhang left outside the die.
I've coloured the image with spectrum noir sparkle pens, and then with water washed the background with the green sparkle pen - it really does glitter beautifully in real life. I've used another poppy set for the word background behind the die. From my snippet box I cut the die in red and then again part of the die in green - otherwise I will end up with a never ending task of fitting waste into dies!
I found out about a group for adults with learning difficulties this week that needed art and craft supplies.So I had a good clear out in the craft room including a lot of my snippets and die cuts that I had "waiting to be used". They were so pleased when I took everything to them - I've promised to go and do a craft session with them too.
This is for the snippets playground, don't worry I've still got lots of snippets to play with, making new ones all the time too!
