Send Him at Once to Me ...

This is my entry for the Stampotique Designers Challenge SDC33 Use Your Scraps.  There was a blog hop tour attached to this challenge with some prizes up for grabs but  I've been too busy to get my entry done in time for that!

Like most crafters, I've got tons of scraps.  Actually, due to moving house, I have thrown away some stuff (shame on me!!) and since moving, due to my new craft area being visible to all rather than being tucked away in the annexe, I have been throwing more bits and pieces away just to keep the area tidier!  However, suffice it to say, I still had more than enough stuff for this challenge LOL!!

As I started to rummage, I found some sheets of paper that I had used to experiment with some inky techniques.  I chose a piece for my background which was created with inks, water and rock salt and was languishing in the bottom of the bits box.  I then found another sheet which I had used lots of different inks on and then masked and sprayed with glimmer mists.  It had loads of different colours on it so I stamped my images in different areas before cutting them out.  I cut Kitty out from a sheet where the technique I had tried didn't go to plan (and I've a good choice of those!).

I was deciding on the sentiment when I chanced upon a leftover piece of sheet music which seemed to lend itself to my layout.  Job Done!

Hope you like my scraps entry -  if you are quick you could use us some of your scraps too as the challenge runs until 12th July.
