Hello crafters, hope you are all well. I have a couple of posts today, and so I will start off with The Secret Crafters Saturday Challenge No. 18 - "Recycling" - your project must have some element of recycling on it! Well I have chosen a Rubber Romance stamp called Marlaine, and she has been coloured with Sukura Gel Pens, and then layered on red and grey cardstock. The stripey backing paper was actually from a leaflet which came through the post for some kind of Insurance (I think). The strip of Black ribbon is also recylced from a shirt I bought, and you get the little pieces of ribbon on the shoulders, well I hate them, so I always cut them off, and my last piece of recycling is the Black organza bow, taken off a Christmas card from one of my blogging buddies Gill (sorry Gill, needed the bow!). And finally to finish off the card, and stamped sentiment from Crafters Companion, and a few grey brads from my craft stash.
