We shall not cease from exploration
And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time.

House of cards ....

Finished tidying the craft room, and it stayed immaculate for about half a day!  And I forgot to take a photo, .... I'll try and remember to do so next time.

I'm sure I am no different from other crafters; having a lot of partially completed stuff, or experimenting with techniques and not using the results.  So, decided to use some of this stuff up, and created a few cards.

I had stamped over a simple two-tone Pan Pastels background, then erased some of the colour away, so I added a sentiment, and black line border.

I did love doing the salt on watercolour paper technique.  Added a daisy to this one, created by  punching out some heart shapes and folding in half.

This salt background was quite beautiful, but dark - ideal for a man's card!  For the collage stamped image, highlighted areas with white wax crayon before adding the colour.  The crayon acts as a resist.

Liked using the collage stamp, so also did this one, using a background that had been stencilled with Sparkle Medium.

Time for tea!
