Another "let's throw stuff on it" card....*winks*


Enjoy-mixed-media-card

Well, friends who are tackling the scrap pile, you know the struggle is real.
Every time you use something from the scrap pile, there is a small voice inside of you that says, "Yes!" but then there's that other much much louder voice that mocks at you, "That has not made a dent in your scrap pile! Haha!"


Which of course gets you to head back to your scrap pile [because that devil's advocate preys on your insecurities...so evil right?] and fish for something else to throw on your already done card....*winks*


And also serves as my lame excuse for this "let's throw stuff on it" card. *LOL*


I started with a Stencil Girl stencil + fiber paste on watercolour paper. Next, I went in with some Dylusions spray inks. After that, I went into my scrap pile to find something that would match my colour palette. I found the fussy-cut bird cage, then the frame. And of course, I wanted to use the lace from an old bra for a little peekaboo effect. Then, I decided it needed some sparkle, so I thought I should add some bling...but of course, the bling had to sit on something pretty so I added mica flakes. Then a paper bloom.....et cetera and 45 minutes, I had my "let's throw stuff on it" card done! :)

P/s: Happy week ahead friends!

I was very amused by this post. I also have a scrap pile that's a mile high or so it seems. I like what you've done with what you found. We should start a club for scrap pile hoarders who like to pile stuff on their projects to get rid of their scraps. We'll be charter members! Hugs...keep posting!

I really should divide my scrap pile into "things that will fit in page protectors and/or envelopes" and "lumpy stuff, for cards and tags that won't be mailed." That would make it much easier to find bits for projects.

Oh, I know that scrap pile dilemma....:D
Adorable card, Yvonne! I love the texture of the background, and I'm having fun recognizing all your paper bits. Really love the lace and mica on here. Always appreciate that touch of glam.
