Recycling

Hello there,  'Less is More' is a recipe this week and is all about recycling, so I made a simple card
        This is at night.......................................and this during a dull day, I love metallic finishes!


Apologies for the poor quality photos in my last 2 posts, the port on the computer for my camera card is broken so I've taken to using the IPad. I have trouble holding it steady so, even if the camera is fine, the user isn't LOL
This is a photograph of the topper that I made and removed from a card, I was not happy with it and it has sat in my recycling box (one of the many) probably for about a year. The whole thing is too big for a CAS card unless it is huge. So I cut them out!
The die cut at the back was left from another project so is also using up left overs.
I used Crafty individuals stamp and IndigoBlu gilding flakes
Die from Memory Box, Tithonia Flourish.
Sentiment a Tim Holtz Remnant Rub 'Words'




No tennis today and footy doesn't start until 5pm, I've been dodging the showers, in and out :D
Have a lovely week everyone, Hugs Gay x
p.s I have been watching 'The 100' anyone seen it? I like a bit of sci-fi / fantasy now and again :D x

Love the recycle! Those metallic butterflies are super.
As an aside, you can get a card reader that plugs into the iPad (regular & lightning bolt types) so you can still use your camera and post from your iPad :-D

I have been drawn to your blog before to see your beautiful cards but don't think I've ever left a comment. IndigoBlu gilding flakes are fab, aren't they, and have worked really well on your butterflies. Stef

I thought the first card looked like you had used "real" butterflies, then saw it was metallic, fab fab fab use, love the embossing with them too.

Haven't seen "The 100" I too like a bit of Sci fi / fantasy. Must go and investigate it. Thanks for the recommendation.
