Passion for Promarkers Week 71 does Lili of the Valley Sketch no 67


Time for our next challenge at PFP and this week, the theme has been chosen by the lovely Tracy - and it's recycling!!  Our sponsor this week is Pink Gem Designs and you could win one of their gorgeous stamps.

 I am a bit of a hoarder and hate to throw anything away, so you'd think this would be easy - my little craft room is packed to the rafters with stash that I can't get rid of  because you never know!!!  But I couldn't decide what to use, so raided my broken jewellery stash!!  I've used a broken earring for the centre of one flower and a piece of broken bracelet for the charm on the sentiment flower!

 I also used some recycled tissue paper that delicate purchases have been wrapped in - and the brown piece of tissue above came with the tapes for my ATG gun!! I knew it would come in useful!!

The next picture shows the remains of the broken bracelet and some vintage buttons that I was going to use but couldn't make them fit,  so used them for a bit of staging instead!!
 Coloured with my trusty PMs and papers are K&Co Winter Wonderland and, I think, Websters Pages - I am so in love with these at the moment, I can't stop using them!  Good job I bought loads from Crafty Emma's Store!!

Oh, and as the image is one of this year's sooo cute Christmas Stamps from Lili of the Valley, I've used the sketch created by the awesome Bev Rochester!

The winners of last week's PFP challenge will be announced later so pop on over to  the Passion for Promarkers Challenge Blog to see who the lucky winner is - and check out the recycled elements used by my fab DT buddies, they have some amazing ideas!!

(Do you like my new signature - personalised for little ol' me from Whimsy Stamps!)
