Reduce, Reuse, Recycle - H2H Challenge

Heart 2 Heart Challenge Blog has an Earth day challenge this week- to reuse/recycle something in your artwork.  This is a great challenge! I usually think of 10 different things I could do with something, but then throw it out because I don't want the clutter! Well, this way I actually was able to recycle without having it lay around to gather dust.

I had just recently bought a pack of chipboard stickers by Imaginesce.  They have this great wood grain piece of cardstock inside the package, so I cut it to the size I needed and added it to my card.  I used CMTH Topstich paper pack, Just blooms, and Find Your Style stamp set.  I stamped the bird with Versamark onto glossy cardstock, let it dry completely, and went over with a brayer rolled with Blue Breeze Kaleidacolor ink pad, then wiped the excess ink off the cardstock. I also used the brayer and same ink to roll over the flower and added a sticker from the Topstich Stickease pack.

Now, I've already put aside a few things to recycle for my next project!

Check out the H2H Blog for info on their Bunny Hop this Monday, April 18th.
