Reduce, Reuse, Recycle

Arty Girlz have decided to have an On-going 'Recycling' Challenge. As you hopefully know by now 'Recycling' is an ongoing challenge on Arty Girlz so please think before you throw anything away and if you can 'recycle' please do.....

So I did... this card was made using an old brown envelope (you know the one the bills come in) As it happens my bear stamp arrived in post and I just HAD to stamp it and I used the only undoodled bit of paper in front of me - envelope. Then to colour in... I had my Sakura glitter pens beside me and got carried away with them and my water brush! The whole image sparkles I tried to show it in photo hope you can see!
Then for the die cut tag I used cereal box card covered with BG paper and stamped. The flower I used the plastic packaging the die came in and cut the flowers, I decided to actually try my alcohol inks (a first for me,) thoroughly enjoyed the effect, may have to get more!

I used the wonderful Sketch #10 over on Nicole's blog, but realise it's slightly different. Really enjoyed this project, as you can read I rambled on, and now I have to rush as baby wants me!
