ABC Christmas R....

Hello, the very talented Carissa is hosting this weeks ABC Christmas Challenge.
The new challenge is
R for Recycling and Ribbons or Rhinestones
You must create a Christmas project using at least on recycled item and it must also include either ribbons or rhinestomes. You may use both if you desire.
We are lucky to be sponsored this week by Digital Delights They have an awesome selection of digital stamps, papers & more,
and our Winner will receive 3 digital stamps of their choice.
To get you started we have compiled a list of recycling Hints and Tips to get you started.
Some ideas that you might include on your projects are:
Alter it - give an old item a new purpose and a new lease on life.
Die cut plastic or chipboard packaging to create one of a kind embellishments.
Re-use buttons, ribbons and lace from old clothing.
Re-use Christmas cards and wrapping paper.
Run flat plastic packaging through an embossing folder to make a gorgeous textured window or overlay.
Use corregated cardboard and other textured items as a one of a kind background stamp.

On my project, the white snowflake on the ribbon is actually off of an old sweater.
I airbrushed the background with my Hardly Used Copic Air Brushing System.

Supplies Used:
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Copic Markers
Cardstock: SU Real Red, Basic Black
Paper: Teresa Collins
Accessories: May Arts Red Ribbon, Petite Oval and Petite Scallop Oval Nestabilities, SU Red Rhinestone Brads, Xmas Red  and SIlver Stickles, White Liquid Applique.
Recycled Snowflake Button
