Bubbles


The Digi Makeover Challenge team has a fun challenge for this week - it's to recycle something and put it on your card.  Be sure to let us know what it is.


Bubbles the Duck, a Paper Makeup Stamps digital image, was my inspiration for this challenge.  He's blowing homemade bubble solution and is embracing the magic (sentiment by Create with TLC).  I have a couple of items that were recycled on this card.  Can you figure out what they are?  The first one is a bottle cap that I converted to the sunshine and the other items are the clouds and the grass.  They were die cut (MFT dies) from a Starbuck's cardboard coffee sleeve.  I used a bit of gesso to paint the clouds and Paper Soft Color for the grass.

Now it's your turn to help the environment by recycling something on your project.  Remember, you need to use a digi image for our challenges.  You have one week to upload your creation to the Digi Makeover Challenge blog.  Be sure to see what the rest of the Digi Artists recycled while you're there.

That sentiment is wonderful and the image is soooo cute. I love that you used a Starbucks coffee sleeve - I did the same thing on my tea/coffee card this week. Your card is darling!
