CRAFT Challenge DT #402 Recycling

Good morning! Thursday means a new CRAFT Challenge and this week our theme is Recycling

I have done quite a lot of recycling on my card!

The fun image is Roosting Chicken by QKR Stampede. Poor love, she looks rather miserable! I admit, I tried to colour her TWICE in 'realistic' colours - browns and creams - but it didn't work. Then I suddenly realised that she was feeling 'blue' and the new colouring worked a treat! Of course this had to be a 'get well' card, and I hope it will cheer up the lady I will send it to!

The abstract background is RECYCLED from the box that enclosed a very nice Rioja wine that we had for my hubby's birthday last Friday. It went very well with steak and mushrooms! The red ribbon is RECYCLED from a box of chox that we were given for Christmas, and the holographic blue hearts were die-cut from card RECYCLED from a gift bag.

I hope that's enough recycling for the Challenge lol!

love Mags B x

Wow, that is a lot of recycling! Well done, Mags! And I love how you coloured the chicken - very cute! The blue colours are perfect for her blue mood! I know your friend will have her day brightened by this card!

So gorgeous Mags and so much recycling. My effort to the challenge was just a bit of cord that I found in my recycle goods box. No idea where it came from.

The recycled background looks perfect for this sick chick! Glad that your 'traditional' coloring didn't inspire you, so that you changed to what you've done here. The image is spot on to cheer a friend who's not feeling great, and I love this one! I must remember: blue chicken!! The background looks like an old crazy quilt. You've a good eye to spot that on the recycled box too! TFS & Hugs
