The challenge over at Get Sketchy is 'Trash to Treasure'. I liked the idea of recycling; I have a box with bits on my craft table that I like to keep and hopefully use. These bits include clothing tags, ribbon, etc.
Here's the card I came up with:
My recycled bits are: clothing tag, string cord, lace doily cut from old tablecloth and old kids book!!
I've layered pink cardstocks and kraft to form the base of the card. A page from an old kids book has been cut out and I've used the lace doily punch along the bottom, then sponged the edges with Sahara Sand ink.
The Tilda with Rose Magnola Stamp has been coloured in with inks and aqua painter, then cut out and assembled onto card. Using the clothing tag, I've layered on a lace doily which I've dyed in pink, then added the flower to the centre. This is one of the many gorgeous goodies, I received from Bizzy Becs blog giveaway!!
Then I've added some small pink pearls to complete the card. Here's a closer look at the details.
