It’s Wednesday and time for another challenge over at Frilly and Funkie Challenge Blog!
This challenge is hosted by Suzz (Suzz’ Stamping Spot), who has chosen the theme IT’S NOT EASY BEING GREEN …Suzz says, “For this challenge you can create any type of project as long as you UPCYCLE or re-cycle something. Re-purpose an existing item, recycle an element that usually would be thrown away or use your paper scraps in a creative way.”
For this challenge I wanted to share a card I made for the CHA 2016 Tim Holtz booth using my paper scraps creatively, as well as showcasing the new mixed media 3 thinlits die set. I also went literal with the challenge theme, because for me, getting things to grow isn’t easy! It really is hard for me to be green (fingered)! 😉
I used leftover grungeboard and metallic kraft core and die cut the watering can. Using a sanding grip I scuffed the top to give a more worn look. I added a leftover “love” die cut and ribbon from another project.
I used leftover paper from the incredible new dapper paper stash by Tim Holtz and die cut these flowers and leaves with the tiny tattered florals thinlits die set. They were mounted over the top of the brick wall outline that I die cut with the new mixed media 3 thinlits die set.
Thanks for stopping by. I hope you will find time to join in the challenge and pop over to Frilly and Funkie challenge blog to see the rest of the DT’s projects. All the products I used are available from The Funkie Junkie Boutique.
CHA Product previews and BTS from the show are on Tim’s blog. Many of the new products are shipping now or available for pre-order.
