Recyled For Two Challenges

This was such a quick card to make! It's for two challenges - Bah! Humbug! and Rainbow Lady's both of whom have asked us to recycle this week. I decided to keep it simple and on semi-glossy card have stamped a ummount corner flourish stamp and then stamped the two images onto separate card, cut them out and mounted onto 1mm foam tape. All the stamping was done with Brilliance sky blue ink. The label was stamped onto slightly different card - this isn't visible to the naked eye, but of course the camera has picked it up!

And the recycled bit? Those lovely blue gems! - and I promise they were on a shop bought card and not one of my treasured hand made ones.


  1. Hello Anne
