Upcycling ...........




This simple card is made using a 4.5 x 4.5 inch white card blank adorned with a upcycled bookpage flower made using the TH tattered flowers die.  The petals have been coloured with Dylusions sprays in lime and yellow and overstamped with red Memento ink and a TH stamp.

I have added a star brad which started life pink but was recoloured with a red copic marker, to hold the petal layers together and the flower is held down with sticky dots.




The red strip is Washi tape and the sentiment (inked with black Archival Ink) is another TH stamp.

Think this fits the bill for the 'Less Is More' Challenge blog week 178 where we are to use something recycled.
