Elzybells Challenge 21 - Recycling

This fortnight the challenge over at Elzybells has been set by the fab Kim and it is recycling. We have been told we can interpret as we wish! I have stamped the gorgeous 'Teddy Flowers' out onto the new Elzybells smooth white CS and coloured with Koh-I-Noor pencils {also available at Elzybells} and Sansodor. Cut out and added to base with 3d foam. The base is strips of paper from the Basic Grey 'Urban Prairie' pad that were in my scrap box {see recycling!!} added to a white card blank, flowers are from the lovely Vicki added with gem stones and the buttons were from an old piece of clothing {more recyling!} message stamped {from the 'Little Hello' set} in the corner. Please visit the blog for details on how you can enter and to see all the DT examples in one place!

STAMPS: Elzybells Art Stamps. INK: memento Tuxedo Black. CS: Craftwork Cards, Elzybells Smooth, Basic Grey. ACCESSORIES: Flowers from the lovely Vicki, recycled buttons, white thread, Papermania Adhesive Gems, Koh-I-Noor pencils.

  14. Hi Michelle,

    I wondered if you could help me with a question about Memento Tuxedo Black ink for using with copics and promarkers please? I currently use Adirondack but heard the memento is much better. I can only find the dew drops though in it - are these ok to use or is it the big pad i need? Thanks, Kate x

  15. Awesome card Michelle - loving the design and the fab bear image - super colouring. Great papers you have used too
    love tasha xx
