Hello, Good Morning and welcome to another great Tuesday Throwdown Challenge !! This week we are asking that you 'Recycle It' - (use Recyled materials of some sort)!!
We are also lucky enough to be sponsored by Meljen's Designs - a fabulous company with a great selection of digital stamps for you to enjoy! I have used the "Happy Birthday Swirls" and the cute little raggedy lion images.
The adorable little lion image was printed and then cut-out twice, coloured simply using some Copic markers and then his front legs and head popped up using some foam adhesive for dimension. I also used Copics to add a little extra colour to the lovely swirly frame and sentiment too.
So, my recycled materials are actually things I've taken from around the house:
Kraft coloured cardboard from the back of one of my son's easter egg box, die cut using Spellbinders Blossom die set...
...and a little blue t-shirt that my son's have outgrown, again die cut using Spellbinders Floral Doily dies and made into the flower next to the sentiment.
...I also used some left over packaging from some trims I bought from Making Memories Animal Crackers line to make the circular background die cut on which the little lion sits. I thought the subtle blue animal line drawings tied in with the main image quite well.
I hope you will give this a try - I had so much fun thinking about what can be re-used/recycled!! All the DT ladies have been busy creating amazing projects for you to enjoy - so you may like to hop on over to the Tuesday Throwdown blog to take a look and link up your fab creations too!!
Thanks so much for looking and hope you enjoyed my little card.
