Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge - Dust off Your Stash

Good morning,

Today's card is for the Secret Craft Saturday Challenge where this week they ask "Dust off Your Stash".

My neglected craft item is a Scor-Bug. I bought one some time ago and tried using it and really struggled to get the pressure right, either piercing right through the card or not making a mark at all. Rather than practice to get it right, I just put the Bug away and almost forgot about it. I got it out for this card in a last ditch attempt to get some use out of it and "hey presto" I got it right first time. I am sure I shall be using this little gadget more and more from now on.

The image I have used is from Lilyboo and called "Floral Bouquet" and will be available in the very near future from Cuddly Buddly. I coloured this image with Copics and added some Stickles Glitter glue to some of the flowers. I have also used my new Spellbinders "Labels 4 Small", I am so pleased that Spellbinders bought out this die to co-ordinate with the original Labels 4.

Thank you for visiting my blog.

Hugs, Clare xx

Gorgeous card Clare. That bouquet is really beautiful. I have a score bug too and I hadn't it used it for ages until the other week. Isn't it awful how things get put aside and forgotten or not used because we can't get the right effect!

Loving the look of your scor-bug. Well done for dragging it to the front again and getting some use out of it.

Hope you had a good weekend.
