A chequered scene


This started out life as being an illusion piece, but it didn't work out. So I pushed all the pieces of the picture through from the die and stuck them down. Then I was going to frame with the same die cut from green, but that didn't look right either!

I decided to use the waste from the green die cut and complement it with some of the previous waste from this die cut in black.

Here's one of my die waste storage jars. You can see the black squares from a previous project.

The sentiment fitted nicely in the space and with the scene. I'm off to the Snippets Playground to show what I've been up to.

It looks very intricate Lynn I like how you have added the 'waste' of the dies to fill in and the image itself looks so lovely the sentiment is FAB

SO much beautiful work with this wonderful card Lynn. x
A very different and modern look for your card, Lynn. A lot of work to inlay all the pieces! Lovely poem too, and your storage jar for tiny pieces seems so useful!

Fab card using that die and lots of patience! Love the result.

Thanks for coming to play in the Snippets Playground. See you up in the treehouse for a nightcap!

Well whatever your initial plan it all came together nicely Lynn.

What a great way to rescue your idea, and use up some of those snippets! Xxx

That's a project very well rescued and certainly plenty of snippets. Keeping the fall out from die cutting gets to be an addiction but well worth doing 😉

This must have taken some patience Lynn! A clever idea and the result is very effective.

Great card Lynn - you're a glutton for punishment, just like me. But how wonderful when you get a result like this. My guess is that you do like the challenge of a jigsaw puzzle!

I've been playing with Lindy's Shakers this afternoon - wonder why?!
