Recycle at The Male Room challenge
The challenge over at The Male Room is "recycle". I've done two bits of recycling with this card. The first is the coffee cup holder which is cut from a brown envelope that came with some jewellery. The background brown diamond shape is also recycled from some packaging that was wrapped around drinking glasses.
I then added a die cut from Gummiapan called Doodled die frame, and used three Gummiapan stamps:- Ink splats, happy birthday and collage numbers. I stamped the collage numbers in versafine sepia and archival watering can to give it a more subtle look. I love that happy birthday as you can stamp it on an angle and it looks like its handwritten. All the Gummiapan are available from Swedish House crafts.
The coffee cup and sentiment are from a SU set that I got at a retreat in 2014 - we did use the set at the retreat to create and were given a set to take away -this is the first time it's seen ink! You can't tell from the photo, but I did use glossy white card stock for the lid of the cup to give it that plastic look.
