Massive crafty sort out and lots of scraps to use up

Well I've had massive sorted out of all my crafty stuff.. my word I have required quite lot of lovely craft things over the years. So it was long over due to get my craft stuff organise with the help from my new plastic storage unit I purchase from Aldi..

I found out I had tons of scraps of card and paper - so I have sorted all those into big A4 clear box and set myself a challenge to make some cards using up them scraps.
This is my first creation with my personal challenge and really enjoyed recycling the scraps too.

The image is from lovely site I found that as tons of free digi stamps - do visit as she as array of lovely things at Dearie Dolls Digistamps site and you will find the link HERE

Items I used - Free digi stamp by  - All my leftover scraps from my supplies. Spectrum Noir Pens and WH Smith coloured pencils - Apple shape buttons - Peel off - White gel pen.

I enjoyed colouring this image so much as the image as lots of open spaces, and this was excellent practice for using my spectrum noir pens and using coloured pencils. First attempt so I am hope to some more samples with this technique. 

Hope you have enjoyed my blog post today and hope you visit me again. Please be sure to follow my blog for the latest post and news.
