Ky gave us a great mixed media challenge to use pieces from previous projects and make a patchwork.
I am not usually a horder, but I must confess to hording all my papercraft scraps, I even keep bits that have been stamped badly. This card was made with scraps from 5 different cards.
Most of the scraps are a combination of Dylusions Ink Sprays, Distress Inks, water, baby wipes. I put this together by starting with the middle square, then 'building' around it. Where ever there is a join I did faux cross stitching.
The flowers and one solo little leaf was sitting on my desk. Not only did I make a card, but I cleaned up my desk at the same time LOL.
Have a great weekend everyone and thank you for looking.

I am intrigued that you have perfect matching scraps! I love the patchwork look on this Susie! The faux stitching looks wonderful with it! I also just love your doodling. That's something I haven't had the nerve to try yet! Love these vibrant colors too!

I think I'd have picked this out as yours straight away, Susie, with those sprayed and smooshed background panels - they make for fabulous patchwork. I love that you had enough to include the stamped girl.

Love your beautiful patchwork of scraps! Like Nancy, I've never had the courage to doodle on a card and really admire people who do. It's good to know I'm not the only one who holds on to failed art - worked out well for this challenge.
