Just Snippets!

Welcome!  I do hope you're enjoying your weekend.

Yesterday while I was in town I bought a Making Cards magazine.  I've not seen this mag before.

Anyway inside were some free papers including several zentangle for colouring pages. I think most of us enjoy colouring in don't we?  It reminds me of happy times when I was a little girl.

Yesterday evening I coloured in a section of one of the pages and made a card for my box of charity cards.

This morning I decided that there was a large enough scrap left to make a card which I could take along to Pixies Snippets Playground.

I coloured it, trimmed it and mounted it onto a piece of black card and added gems to the centres of three of the flowers.  The sentiment is a scrap of white card that I scribbled onto with a green Promarker.  The sentiment and dotty border are from a set by Paula Pascal.  I punched it out and mounted  it onto the card with foam pads.  I rubbed a light blush of pink round the two white sides of the card but it doesn't show up in the photo.

Oooh this is lovely Barb! Wonderful colours you chose to use and a great design of card too. Apparently LOTV have brought out some colouring pads too - it seems to be very much 'in' right now!

Wow, Barb, this is truly lovely, well down on zentagling with colour, too - I love it...
Just a suggestion, if you're that way inclined, I would scan the black and white sheet, and print it on some good card for use in other cards. I save images like that for reuse, esp if you're making for charity etc.

Thanks so very much for joining my blog as a wonderful encourager, I will link over to you blog ins welcome on my next post, and hopefully you might get some more folks join you. :)

Great zentangling card here, with beautiful coloring too! I love those tiny gemstones on the flowers and sentiment.

Barb, Love how you colored the zentangle paper. Your card design is a perfect way to use a "snippet" of that pretty paper. Thanks for visiting my blog and becoming a new follower. ta ta for now, Kathy
