Recycling at Allsorts


My teamie Helene is "Saving Nature" at Allsorts this week and would like us to re-cycle on our projects.

My re-cycled element is the red ribbon which came from a Christmas package, it was a bit crumpled but a after a good iron it was good as new. The main image is Penny Black 4-39K Candid which I inked with Aqumarkers and spritzed with water before stamping onto a piece of cardstock which had I stamped with Hero Arts H2365 Old French Writing. The DP is My Minds Eye, the border punched with Martha Steward Doily Lace then the spine of the card scored, eyelets added, tied with cord and finally a few gems in the flower centres.
