Scraps of Black and Ivory
Ok so this will be my last all spellbinders card, because hopefully I'll be out of hospital today yea hey! Gonna get my man to stop off at a craft shop on the way home whilst he's feeling sorry for me.I'm hoping to pick up half a dozen Tim Holtz distress inks as I haven't got any yet." Haven't got any distress inks" I hear you say, well you'll be amazed at what I haven't got !This Blog should be called how to make Cards on a budget of zero; although if you spoke to my husband he would say I've got loads of stuff but he's a man and what does he know about the needs of a paper addict!
My last fortnight challenge to myself has been to make cards without using the printer and using scraps only! It was really difficult at first and for an hour I thought I'd lost my mojo but I flicked through the net as you do and soon had some ideas that got me started. (when I workout how to do it, I'll share my favourite sites with you)
I made my card from various scraps of ivory and black card cut with a range of spellbinder dies, a piece of Pink Petticoat paper which I'm sorry to say is probably unavailable now and some handmade roses.
I challenge you to use your scraps for a week and give your printer and purses a break lol . Hugs Dea xx
