Reuse, Recycle #1 - Bubblewrap

Good Morning Crafters

I'm sharing another Distress Oxide card this morning reusing a household product.  I'm planning a series of cards with a Reuse, Recycle theme so watch this space. 

Here is the step by step;

Wipe the Spiced Marmalade Distress Oxide over a piece of bubble wrap and press on to a card blank (mine is 5 1/4 by 5 1/4).  Dry off with a heat tool.

Stamp and heat emboss a butterfly from the Woodware Butterflies stamp set.  Smear some Spiced Marmalade Distress Oxide on to a craft mat and pick up the colour with a damp brush to paint the butterfly.  Cut out and shape. 

Adhere the butterfly to the card with wet glue and add antenna with a Zig 08 Millenium pen.  Stamp the FLY sentiment from the EEG24 Paperartsy stamp set using Jet Black Archival Ink. 

Keep on Crafting.
