Passion For Promarkers - Recycling!

Tuesday! Sadly the weekend is still some way off, but YAY! it's time for another fab challenge at Passion For Promarkers. This week my lovely D-Teamie Tracy has chosen this week's theme of recycling.

Our wonderful sponsor this week is Pink Gem Designs who are offering this weeks winner any stamp of their choice from their brilliant range.

I used one of my favourite LOTV images for this card. I've been neglecting my LOTV cuties of late. So many stamps, so little time!

My image is coloured with Aqua Markers & the DPs are MME Bloom & Grow. The buttons are made with newspaper. The biggest one was created by gluing layers of paper together. The smaller ones are clear buttons with newspaper stuck behind them. I wanted the buttons to echo the newspaper in the image. The ribbon on the larger one is a hanger loop I cut off a skirt. I have loads of ribbon I've cut off garments. I hate it when they have brand logos on!!

The layout for this challenge is taken from Bev's fab sketch at this fortnight's LOTV challenge, so I would also like to enter this there.

Hope everyone is having a great week.

Thanks for looking,
Andie xx

Great Card! I like that it is not too cluttered. It gives it a nice light and airy feel of an Autumn day.
