LOC # 80 - Upcycle / Recycle

Hey there, thanks for stopping by!  It's time for a new challenge over at Left of Center Challenges.   This weeks theme is upcycle / recycle. I have used some recycled items to make the background for my card.  First I used part of an old cardboard box and pulled off a layer to expose the ridges inside.  I smeared some paint on them and then used it to "stamp" the lines on my card.  I also used some bubble wrap I had laying around and dipped it in white paint to also add to my background.  

My image is Tessy Twitcher from Oddball Art Stamps by Lizzy Love. She also came with the two little bats off to the right.  I've colored her with pencils, fussy cut her out and added her to my card.  I'm really happy with my background.  If only I knew how much fun it was to find things to use before I bought all those background stamps :)

What are you waiting for, head over to LOC to see what the DT has created and join in the fun and show us your projects!

LOC #78 - distress it!

 Hello friends!  This weeks challenge theme over at Left of Center Challenges is "distress it!" Please make sure you distress your creation or as always you can choose anythign goes as long as your project is LOC.  For clarification on what we consider LOC please visit our rules page.

This weeks sponsor is the fun and fabulous Bugaboo Digi Stamps.  They have a wide variety of images, perfect for all your crafty creations!  For my mini-jounal page I have used Skelekidz Girl.

I've colored her with pencils and fussy cut her out to add to my journal page. I gesso'ed my pages and then sprayed with Dylusions ink spray in Bubblegum and Tattered Angels glimmer mist in Cornflower Daze.  The ink looked a little to uniform so I took the still wet pages and gently smooshed them together.  I love how fun and bright it turned out.

What are you waiting for?! Head over to LOC to check out what the DT have created for your viewing pleasure and then add your distressed creation :)

I've colored her with pencils then dug thru my paper stash to find paper that would work, what's a cowgirl without a little plaid.
