We are getting all green over at Crafty Cardmakers and our theme this week is recycle. You could, for example, turn a container into a pen pot, use the inside of a roll of tape to make a jewellery box, or use a piece of a box for your card. The possibilities are endless and it gives us Crafters a good reason for saving all those bits and pieces we hoard away, lol. We are sponsored this week by the lovely Joanna Sheen who is offering a £10 voucher for her fabulous online shop to one lucky winner.
I decided to do something with the old Smash container that I've kept my Whispers Pens in for the last 3. I know a musical theme is unusual for a pen pot but my choice was dictated by the paper I used. The paper is from Stampin' Up called Newsprint. I added some cream lace and then stamped some music notes directly onto the paper using Encore Copper ink. The stamps are from Aspects of Design Classical Instruments set. Then I stamped a couple of the instruments onto copper Art Emboss Metal using black StazOn, cut them out and popped them onto the container.
