BC 184 Reuse/Recycle
Does anyone have any fun plans tonight? Our family has a fun (but not very exciting) tradition for New Years Eve. We go to a movie and get chinese food. It's always a big debate what movie everyone will want to see. over the years we've seen some great ones and some flops as well.
The card I've posted today will go to my Father in law. His birthday is next week. Can you guess what the reuse/recycle element is? It's the twill ribbon. Santa brought the family some snuggly couch blankets and I was so excited to see that they were held together with twill. As soon as we opened these I snatched the twill and set it aside. I knew right away that this is what I'd use for this weeks challeng.
The blankets are already a huge hit. My son watches ESPN every morning and he loves to cuddle in with a blanket while doing so. These are fabulous.
So back to the card. The base is PTI Kraft and the blue layer is Baja Breeze from SU. I roughed up the edges with my roughing tool. The stamps are from A*Muse. I inked them up with momento black and colored them with my copics. To do the chair, I did the blue first on everything. Then I went back in with the light tan and colored in the flowers. Copics are interesting that way. You do the dark first and then you can back with light and it pulls the dark color out. The image is centered on some PTI layering dies and the patterned paper is some great retired DSP from SU.
Thanks for looking. Have a great day.
