Stella Says Sketch

Good Afternoon everyone
Brian is now back at home so I have been busy unpacking and sorting things out and then the best part (besides Brian being home) is putting my craft stash away he brought back yummy too, did not relise I had ordered so much ekkkk.

Now onto todays Stella Says Sketch challenge over ata Catch the Bug and its a super sketch to follow.

 I decided to make a hanging plaque, I used the image called Johnny Music and you can find him HERE at the bug shop. The papers are Tim Holtz and inked the edges with Mustard distessing ink.

 I stuck them to a piece of thick card that I had from an album that was going in the bin but kept the thick card as I thopught it might come in usefull (glad I did) on the front and back with the ribbon in between.

 The image is coloured with Copic and the sentiment is from Whimsy stamps I also used a EK punch.

I do the same thing. I go to throw things out but think to myself that I maybe able to use it one day. And when the time comes that I can use it I am so excited that I kept it. Only problem is that my habit is getting out of control. I have more than I can use/reuse!!
Thanks for playing along with our Recycle challenge over at the Sisterhood. Good luck.
