Recycle Month at JFF

Well the recycle theme continues at JFF this week it is use anything from the kitchen, Again I am amazed at the DT pieces so innovative. I chose to do a tag cut from a cereal box that was on its way to the recycle bin (note to self -Use cereal box made tags more often will save using card stock)  I inked the tag with worn lipstick and bundled sage, I then stamped text and a crackle effect background in sepia. I embossed a swirl top and bottom. I passed a piece of the cereal card through a pleating gadget (it looks corrugated) dabbed dolly mixture acrylic paint over it. My wings are the rest of the cereal package. The hearts are made out of spent beer can (the Diamond thinks I have a vendetta going on, first his Sunday supplement then attacking his beer cans, what next? :-)) I passed the metal through my cuttlebug text emboss folder and then a heart die cut, dripped alcohol ink onto them, the flower is also from the beer can the colour is from the beer can. Hugs All and thanks for stopping by my blog.

Oh I did have a laugh at your comments about "the Diamond" - bet he dreads what the JFF team come up with next week.
Lovely tag and what a lot of recycled things you managed to use in it. Love your use of the ribber for the corrugated bit and those hearts are gorgeous. Thanks for joining us at JFF this week - Hugs, Neet x
