I am very late with this post, but at the moment time just seems to be slipping through my fingers ! So, the card I'm sharing is my DT piece for eclectic Paperie eTeam picks and the challenge is Recycling.
For my recycled element I've used some plastic packaging and die cut poinsettia's from it using the Tim Holtz Poinsettia die. I then used alcohol inks to colours it and when it was dry I used a gold pen and drew along all of the edges.
The background is made using the trees from the Reindeer Flight stamp set and I've used Fern Green Archival ink and stamped several times without re-inking the stamp. I've also used a stamp from the Mixed Media set and the Fabulous Flourishes set, again using Fern Green Archival ink.
The centre panel made using the Tim Holtz Hanging Sign die and I've painted it with Fresco Finish paints and then stamped the text from the Mini Holidays set using Fern Green Archival ink.
The lamp post is also a Tim Holtz die and I've blended Pumice Stone Distress ink ovet it and then Forest Moss, but only down one side. I've used a Tim Holtz on the edge die and the calendar stamp from the Mini Holidays set for the horizontal piece.
I heated the poinsettia and because it's plastic it softened while still hot and I was able to bend the petals in to the shape I was after.
I hope you get chance to join us for this challenge !
