No, old stuff day does not refer to yours truly - at least, not for this challenge at the Crafter's Cafe.
Rather, it is an opportunity to recycle - or repurpose, or upcycle -
however you refer to it. The challenges run for two weeks, and you may
enter up to 3 times, with a maximum of 10 challenges entered. We hope
to see you - I know you have some old stuff in your stash to recycle.
For some great ideas, visit the blog
to see what my fellow team members have used - there are some very
original ideas there! Share your ideas with us!
I have used an image from a set by Sparkle n
- called Stained Glass.
The set comes with two floral images
in both pre-colored and black and white versions as well as sentiments.
This is the hand colored
image from the set. My recycled item is the gold mat - I cut it from the pouch containing a packet of coffee - from a motel stay a couple of years ago. Yes, I save stuff to use on cards! You can also see a tiny bit of a strip of gold - it is the negative from a sheet of sticker strips. For the background I sponged ink on the Tim Holz embossing, and used a piece of DP to look like a grassy bg. The sentiment is aso from the Stained Glass set.
