This week, Valerie is excited to challenge us to make use of items that might otherwise be destined for the landfill by re-using them or re-purposing them into a unique piece of art. The design team has pulled out all of the stops to provide the most wonderful inspiration for this challenge!!
Join our fabulous design team and create a project using stamps from any company for your chance to win a $30 Stampotique Originals gift certificate. We will randomly pick a winner with the announcement of the next challenge.Make sure you load your creations HERE
For my card, I used these three fun and freaky images: Santa Baby , Noelle and O Joy. The Jingle sentiment on the tag is from the Jingle Bells sentiment. I masked the images before colouring them in order to have Noelle take the forefront ahead of her gruesome boyfriends
In terms of recycling, the cross hatch dp behind the main image is actually a packaging card from some Jillibean Tags. The Jingle tag on the card is an actual tag that I recycled off a Pier One Bubble Bath. I simply stamped the Jingle Bell sentiment and cut out the "Jingle" to fit the middle of the tag The sparkly Ribbon was also taken from the Ornament Shaped Bubble Bath.
Lastly, the silver beading was rescued off some venetian blinds that were in my father's salvage pile........... I have several yards of this and like to use it from time to time. The images were coloured with Copic Markers with some silver gel pen accents!
