Although I've posted a few times using cards I'd made in advance, I've not actually been crafting for a few weeks now because we've had a constant stream of house guests who are inconsiderate enough to expect to be fed, which means me clearing away all my craft stuff from the dining room table, so most of it has been locked away in the garage. I spent yesterday bringing it all in again and restoring it to the it-looks-a-mess-but-I-know-exactly-where-everything-is state that I find best for crafting. (Just an aside here - I thought Mark just viewed my crafting "arrangement" as just chaos, but this morning he spilled some cocktail sticks on the floor and I said "Don't worry, I can use those for applying glue" and he put them in exactly the right place!)
While everything was packed away I took the opportunity to tidy out some of the boxes and drawers I use, in particular the snippets box because I was wasting a lot of "I know it's in here somewhere" time. So, with everything set up again, I was raring to get using some of my newly organised snippets, and I used LOTS of them in this card.
All the stamps are from a magazine freebie set a couple of years old. I stamped the background onto several different coloured snippets with two copies of it on white, then paper pieced the design onto one of the white backgrounds. Before adding the sea piece, I stamped, die cut and coloured the boat and added it so the water slightly overlaps it where it is dipping into that large wave. I added a black die cut circle to frame it all.
Now, as I'm so far behind with things I'm going to need to do some serious combining of challenges, so I am sharing this with
