Quirky Crafts Challenge Blog

If Mr Blogger's watch is right, you should be reading this on Sunday Evening,( fingers Crossed), and the new challenge over on Quirky Crafts should by now have been posted, (toes crossed too!).

The theme this week is Recycled Romance....the idea being that you produce a romantic card, but using some materials that are not only recycled, but that you would not usually use in your crafting. Quite a tricky theme...until I got into it..then the ideas came. This is the result-

I have used a square card blank in tent style. I inked the edges with a making memories chalk pad in green. I added a matt of corrugated card that came to be in a package the other day, also inked around the edges. The yellow striped paper is from K&Co, a Tim Coffey Design ( Daffodil Pad). Over the top of that I have added a cellophane overlay cut from the wrapping from a bouquet of flowers. The string came from my bits and bobs drawer in the kitchen and I added a flower and button. The image is a digistamp from Digital Stamps by LoubyLoo, I have just added my own sentiment on the computer. Come and visit the Challenge Blog to join in the fun.
