A Little bit of Everything

And an extra special hello to my latest followers, good to have you along.
I started playing with all sorts of bits and bobs and my final result ended up as this card.

 I have used odd scraps of gelli backgrounds and other sprayed and stenciled scraps
I have started to use the vast collection of project life cards that I have, thought I'd use a couple, as of yet I haven't gotten around to starting my album, "note to self" get that started!! 2 of those make up the background of my card. Machine stitching as I just love to add that to my projects.
and of course some stamping.
Stamps used are all from Dina Wakley.

Talking about Dina Wakley I don't think I've told you, I am booked on a Dina workshop in March over at "Art from the Heart" and as if that couldn't get any better I am also meeting up for the first time with my "bestie" blog friend Donna, so it is going to be an extra special day and I can't wait!!
Thanks for stopping by and keep Crafting
I would also like to enter this into this months challenge over at Craft Stamper Blog- the Theme is "Take a Stamp"
Try it on a Tuesday - the theme is My Favourite thing which is making things out of bits that I have left over.

    Fantastic card, love the stitching, the colours and the abstract style you have chosen :-) xxx

  2. I'm not convinced you need to attend the Dina Wakley class Amanda when you can create something like this!!! You are seriously good,this is wonderfully colourful and abstract and I love the stitching.

    Here's to Dina Wakley,cakes and cups of tea ;)

  4. What a gorgeous piece! Love he arty look, brilliant use of Dina's designs! Xx

  5. LOVE this, Amanda!

    It immediately caught my eye when browsing my reading list! It looks as it it was so "randomly" created, but I really know that it takes effort (and skill) to do a collage like this one that has this "easy" feel to it! Wow!
