What! Leftovers again!...

That's what my youngest cries in disgust when I start digging in the freezer and produce lots of unlabelled, unidentifiable dishes for dinner! Actually, if I'm honest, my cooking doesn't taste that great first time round!!!

Well, in this case I've used some leftover card that just wasn't quite right for the project I was working on and challenged myself to make something with it. I like doing this as anything goes!
It started with some dried sprayed card that I'd spritzed with water only to find that different types of spray inks react, well, differently! The pinky colour was Adirondack ColorWash Cranberry and spread a lot more than the Creative Notions Colour Sprays. I was left with a bit of a mess, so overstamped and coloured in some Sketchy Flourishes from Inkadinkado to try and pull it all together:

Then I cut it up. This first card uses Papermania Chatsworth stamps. I quite like this, but only so so:

This second card uses Kelly Panacci stamps Twit Twoo - love these. I also used some of the new Basic Grey Basics paper and the brown seems to work much better with the background card:

I added a little corner treatment to finish it off. I've still got enough to make an ATC.

Thanks for looking!
