Snippet clearance continues.....

My white snippet draw has been further reduce by my need to make a set of thank you cards following my Mum's recent birthday party. These are wee little cards that fit into 11cm square envelopes, so a perfect size for snippets :0) I'm on a roll now Jules thanks for the inspiration! If you have an ever growing stash of snippets, and lets face it who hasn't, why not join in
Jules Sunday Snippet challenge and put those snippets to good use.
I started out by sorting out the required number of pieces of white card that I could cut a 9.5cm squares from. Then it was play time with my ink pads and blending tool. Once the backgrounds were done I stamped the text & images with black Versacolor pigment ink and heat embossed using clear embossing powder. These were then simply mounted onto 10cm snippets of dark blue card and then onto my base cards. And voila.....here's 3 of them.

Distress inks ~ Spiced Marmalade; Wild Honey; Tattered Rose; Stormy Sky; Faded Jeans &
Chipped Sapphire.
Images ~ Hero Art Asian Elements
Text ~ Penny Black Salutations

Hope you are all enjoying the weekend!
