Recycled Dream!!

November 4th 2012


A new challenge at the Just Some Lines Challenge Blog - "Reduce, Reuse, Recycle" - I love this theme!! And at the challenge blog you are now required to use a Just Some Lines Image which I think is a great idea!!


I've used the "Gab 1" image and coloured her with earthy toned Copic Markers for this card which I tried to give an "olde/vintage" feel. The recycled/reused items on my card are the actual card which was an awful coloured metallic square card - I covered the card with some printed tissue paper which was wrapped around a new pair of shoes my daughter bought - LOL I knew as soon as I saw it in the recycle pile that I just couldn't throw it away!!!! The square that Gab is mounted on is a coaster which I covered with some textured paper and some tea stained muslin. I hate to admit how many years old the paper flowers are!!!! I've added braid, a Tim Holtz Ticket and some brads and all the paper and image has been sponged with "Old Paper" Distress Ink. I had a great time making this card tonight!!

What is amazing, all those recycled items are used in a way they look as though you purchased them especially for the card, especially the tissue paper.
You had fun, didn't you?!

How clever that you used a card for the recycled project! I save mishaps to use for die cuts, but never thought of a card!!! This is fabulous!
