Hello and thanks for visiting. Today sees the start of a new Challenge at Try it on Tuesday and for this fortnight our theme is 'Recycle'
I chose to use up some corrugated packaging card and a clothing tag to make my hanging
I peeled back the top layer of the packaging, so messy, and then  to 'glam' this up I randomly added some gold embossing powder.  My next layer was a piece of mop up card - which I stamped with the TH Papillion script, and again added the gold ep around the edges.  My tag was painted with some leftover cream emulsion paint, and rubbed with a baby wipe to take back some of the paint I then stamped with the butterflies, which were also stamped onto some leftover vellum.
I hope you will join us in this challenge to 'recycle' and should you need any inspiration, hop over to the main blog so see what the Team, including our two new members Sirkka and Pamellia have created, you won't be disappointed.
  I am entering this at:
  Stamping Sensations - Things with Wings
  Natalie and Amy's - Things with Wings
  Butterfly challenge - Ugly Bugs Ball (any insect with wings can attend)

That's it for now, Take care
Avril xx
