It's a wrap

Rhi is the darer for the Daring Cardmakers this week and she's sending us all on a recycling mission. It's our plastic packaging she's after and after a couple of disasters fit only for the bin, I managed to use two sorts of plastic in producing this...



The little swing tag is acetate cut from our Christmas cracker packaging. I stamped with Stazon and coloured with Sakura Glaze and Souffle pens. I ended up backing it with a matching white card circle to make the colours look more vivid. It has a more stained glass effect in real life but it's a bit dull up here this morning so it doesn't really show on the pic!

Did you spot the second use of plastic? The bottom polka dots are not designer paper or a rubber stamped background - they're done with bubble wrap *smile*

Supplies: Scribble flowers stamps (unknown maker), Stazon Jet Black, Ranger Archival Jet Black, Prismacolor Pencils/OMS/stump, Sakura Glaze and Souffle pens, grosgrain from stash, bubble wrap, acetate, split rings, Nestabilities Classic Circle

Fantastic Joanne, a brilliant card made doubly amazing by twice the plastic reusing! Love it :)
