Last challenge for March at
the Daring Cardmakers
and theme is RECYCLE....
Are you like me and save all those yummy packaging and labels, tags and threads??
I do have a smallish stash LOL so it wasn't hard for me to come up with some pieces I'd like to recycle
Don't you just love my Koala mug a gift for last years birthday from my wonderful daughter and family.... wow the box it came in was fabulous... four sides with lovely black and white artwork, so of course I trimmed it up and used one of the panels for todays card...the black card layer is also packaging... I simply added another white layer and attached to a white square card ... I left off adding a sentiment.
I'm a bit of a tea drinker, love a cuppa while I'm working at my desk or out in the garden.
So recently I discovered this new tea in the supermarket - Vanilla which I really like and what gorgeous packaging... so, yes, I cut it up too and made two cards.
For my second card I trimmed my teabag packaging to make a flower pot and then stamped some whimsical flowers and leaves and drew some black and white dotty stems and fussy cut them all. I watercoloured the flowers with Distress Oxides and used Salty ocean to sponge around the edge of my white card. Then attached all the elements to the card and added some die cut flowers (cut from the packaging) and the sentiment was also part of the packaging.
