Tuesday Tag Challenge #48 - Re-cycle, re-purpose, Re-Use

Louise's challenge this week is to re-cycle, re-use or re-purpose something.  Well... I didn't pull anything out of my cardboard that I have saved. Instead I took some bits and pieces from finished cards and pulled them together for my tag.

The tag shape was created by tracing the outline from a scrap of cardstock left over from die cutting the new Tim Holtz dies.  I used a background that I had stamped for another project to trace the birdcage on.   I then took the bird remnant from that same cardstock and cut around it to create the bird outline I used on my tag.  The bird outline was sprayed with glimmer mist and sponged with brown ink.  The sentiment was a leftover from some projects this week too. (Cleaning up my desk)

The stamps are all Hero Arts. Some of them are from the latest release and I have had so much fun playing with them. The inks are Versafine Crimson Red and Smokey Gray.

So my re-use/re-cycling is from the die cuts leftovers and background scraps. (Hope that counts)

Thanks for stopping by...

  1. Well, I love everything about this, starting with the shape. Great use of those new HA stamps. The polka dot flower just makes me think that could be the pattern of one of the vintage ladies dresses.
    Now to carefully save this in the right file......:):)
