And then at Newbury Art Stamps I bought this perfect set of Lili of The ValleyEveryday Sentiments. I've been looking for a set of handwritten script type sentiments for ages & these were ideal - lots if ideas bumping around in my head for using these!!
So these 3 came together very quickly. They were originally stencilled using a mix of Glitzcraft & That Special Touch masks by Stamps Away.
Top one,( bluebells I think, but could be snowdrops too!) is straight inked, mounted on a piece of toning card, then on a lilac card blank.
The fuschias & dandelion clocks were inked, then Stickles added thru the mask. For both I stencilled the card blank in a continuation of the main panel. Quite like the effect of stencilling on hammered card blank for the fuschias!
The dandelions were mounted on a leftover piece of multicoloured glitter card that's been getting dog eared in my snippets box since the year dot. It was so dog eared I had to trim it severely, then found the stencilled panel was a bit big so had to trim that back too!!
My snippets box is a big Really Useful storage box with hanging A4 files, snippets divided into colour sections, some sub divided with both plain & pattern sections!! And any leftovers go in there, so some quote small, ranging up to big chunks left from A4 or 12x12 being cut up.
The only snippets that don't go in here are those taken from a paper pad - these go into an acetate bag and are stored inside front cover of the paper pad so they are always with the matching set.
So am I completely OCD about my snippets?? How do you store yours?
Off to the snippets playground to ask the playmates!
