Recycling - Fotografia

Hi there everyone - after talking with my DH about masculine cards and he told me that men like - I went into The Studio and got out some recycled images - shopping bags can be fabulous and I love reusing them - especially for masculine cards -you can see the first card HERE....I might add at this point - I have quite a number of these bags and look forward to using the images in different ways - they are very kool!

The embossed background has been created using Spellbinders Em-bossing Fold'ers Grid 4.25 x 5.5 in Single Sided.  Such a great folder and the texture it gives - I have sponged the embossed area using blue ink.  The card front has been popped up onto a pre-cut card base using Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L 3D Foam Squares.  Postmarks have been stamped onto the image using Imagine Memento ink in Rhubarb Stalk and lightly sponged using the same ink.

The image has been coloured using Chameleon Pens.  I have used a White Gel Pen to add light highlights. This has been sponged aroud the edges using brown ink  and popped up onto the centre of the card front using Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L 3D Foam Squares.  

The Happy Birthday sentiment is from a Hot Off the Press Stamp set and has been adhered to the under the image using  Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L 3D Foam Squares.  The recycled corrugated cardboard has been adhered using liquid glue.

This card is for the following challenges:
