Recycled

After lunch I've had a play around with all the bits and pieces that I got left from last week I sprayed 3 flowers as well as other bits and bobs....as you do, and as you know I save all the scrap sheets of glimmer mist as they make fabbie flowers with a bit of bling.....


.....so today I cut out the piece that had the flowers masks on even though it has runny marks on it I think it adds to the interest. I know when I saw a demo using glimmer mists the lady blotted the paper after spritzing. I was agast what a waste.....I never do this as I love the puddle effects you get..... I stamped over the bare part of the paper with a floral outline stamp....from Papermania....got it ages ago and hadn't used it much up until now. I then stamped an additional 3 flowers the same from another srcap piece as well as 3 other style of flowers and then cut these out. Rather than placing the flowers I kinda dropped them in place and then tweeked.....hoping to create a more natural look. There are no rude words on the text paper as its a childrens book about a Princess.....do I read Italian...no but the picture on the front was a giveaway...La Piccola Principessa....the little princess, I started to study Italian for a year at college and had every intention of learning more but soon found out if you speak to someone they think you're fluent and rabbit off........stick to ordering a cappucino and an ice cream much safer.



Anyway back to the card the text paper was distressed with 4 inks and then spritzes with gold perfect pearls.....well a gal has got to try other things as well....lol. The swirl stamp is from the same set of stamps and before the ink drieds I sprinkled gold embossing powder on it.......I love the effect that you get doing this as its kinda ages it, if that makes sense. To cut a long story short the ticket is from Tim Holtz, as is the memo pin.

I'm with you the pools and drips and spolges from spray paints add so much to the finish. Fantastic recycling, thank you for sharing with us at TT this week.

This is absolutely gorgeous! I just love how you've used your masked shimmery scraps, and how you've added the flowers on top. And I love the Italian text for the Gingersnap creations theme. I had to chuckle about your experience.... when I was in college, I traveled to Austria and thought I'd try out my 5 years of German studies (all done in the US, so you know what that means....). As soon as I asked a question in German, I got a rapid-fire answer in some language that wasn't even vaguely familiar, ROFL!! TFS!
