Well, it's Thursday and that means we have a new challenge for you at DYSU! This week, we want to see you GO GREEN!
This week we have three sponsors:
Winner's Choice of 4 Images
Winner's Choice of 10 Digis
Winner's Choice of 5 Digis
Here is my card:
Well, at DYSU, we leave our challenge themes pretty open to interpretation and I wasn't quite sure just HOW to take the theme this week...so, not only did I use the colour green on my project, but, I also used some repurposed materials. I had this cute image called, "Candy Store", from The Stamping Boutique so, I decided to use this sweet sentiment from the Layers of Color, "Honeysweet", stamp set (stamped in SU! Wild Wasabi). I left the main image uncoloured so it would go nicely with my more natural colour scheme as well as my recycled and repurposed theme. The flower I made from used dryer sheets. I cut out some scalloped circles using Spellbinders and stitched them together while attaching a wooden button from CTMH. I stitched the back of the flower, gathering the material to make it look more like a flower. I try to be eco-friendly (as much as a paper-crafter can be) so, I don't even use dryer sheets. However, my mom still does and she gave me a HUGE bag of used dryer sheets a while back to use in my crafting. The leaves were cut from a Starbucks cup sleeve using Spellbinders Rose Creations. Twine was the perfect finishing touch and I used twine in Peapod from The Twinery.
Anyway, I hope you'll give this challenge a shot...I really enjoyed going green this week!
Head on over to DYSU to see some more inspiration from the DT and I hope you'll play long, this week, too!
