Let's make a scrap based card!

Do you love playing with paper?
Every other Saturday, Outlawz Challenges has a "Paper a La Mode" challenge
that will inspire you to use your paper!
This two week theme is: Use your Scraps

Outlawz Challenges - Paper a La Mode's sponsor this month is:
You can find this shop by clicking here!

Here is my card for you today using an image from Createful Heart called,  Northern Saw-wet Owl
The challenge theme is to use your scraps.  I thought i'd show in photos how i accomplished this card.

I always try to die cut what i want to use for cards by die cutting away from the edge as you can see in this first photo. 
I also cut out a rectangle from the piece on the top right to use for the bottom right.
As you can see there is a section that isn't covered with the green/cream on the right.
Check out how i covered that in the last photo.

The green stripe was a piece left over from a diagonal cut that
 i used as a diagonal on another card

When i cut my circles, i save the outside "frame"

When i layer my paper, i cut circles or squares out from the first layers that don't show.
Can you see the tails i used to cover the section at the bottom right?
Those pieces were cut from the scraps i had used on this card that were too long.

Some of the scraps came from:
We Are 3 Digital Paper - Textures available here
 

We Are 3 Digital Paper - Best of Autumn - available here

We Are 3 Digital Paper - Shabby Glam - available here

We Are 3 Digital Paper - Winter Serenity available here

Embrace the Ocean

Ching Chou Kuik's June Challenge has almost come to an end!
The theme this month is "Under the Sea"

You can find the blog challenge by clicking here!

Here is my card using Ching Chou Kuik image, Embrace the Ocean

I have used Prismacolor Pencils to color this image.

Dies Used:
Marianne Designs - CR1439

I made a more simple card this week.  I used some molding paste and stencil.  Then i highlighted it with some hologram acrylic paint.  I absolutely LOVE that any thing water based reacts with ink jet digital paper.  It looks like raised paper because it takes on the color of the paper.

Ching Chou Kuik image - Embrace the Ocean available here.
