Sailing Away with a hodge-podge of scraps! :)

Hello there! I needed to make a card for a sketch & recipe challenge, so my fondness for keeping bits of goodness here and there came to my rescue! The challenge came from Crafts 4 Eternity - follow the sketch provided, use inking techniques and fabric on your card project.

Well the sketch required lots of strips behind the main image. I happened to have a few bits of fabric that I had saved from some handmade soap given to me by a friend. I don't sew, so fabric is not something I just usually have around the house. The burlap is some from a previous purchase a while back. Twine comes from my HUGE bags of dog food. The knot is made from a twine piece I saved from who knows where - I just loved the braided design! :D The cork pieces are leftover from a wine cork I sliced into buttons way back when for the blog hop.

I burned the edges of the Basic Grey Boxer paper to create a neat effect. did the same with the ends of the little braided knot. The chipboard oval is inked over with navy, and the circles with a silver sharpie to highlight.

You just never know how those little scraps might be put to use! Have a great and glorious day!
