I had a decent amount of crafting time for the first time in ages today. I wanted to make a thank you card for a friend.Time to try a new technique to use up scraps! I’m really pleased how this worked out as it is perfect for using small scraps.
I started by deciding I’d use pink and brown and sorted out some scraps in those colours and some cardboard packaging.
I took a piece of cereal packet. I tore up pieces of brown scrap papers and stuck them down with Mod Podge I used similar colours in a circular pattern. I then coloured the torn edges with brown distress ink.
I then used various scraps with two pink patterns on them to make my union jack patterned mosaic. I coloured the torn edges with pink distress ink.
I covered the mosaic patterned paper with two layers of Mod Podge.
I used a die cut from Lili of the Valley. I cut it out and highlighted the flower, mirror and pearls using glossy accents. I added some pearl embellies to the bag. I mounted them using foam pads to get some lift.
