I've had a great evening! Could be the cardmaking or the wee dram of Glenfiddich or a combination of the two! The challenge today on 365 Cards was a scavenger hunt - to use 3 household things on a card, that you wouldn't normally expect to see on a card. That got me thinking. Then I had a brainwave and tipped out the entire contents of my handbag (not a pretty sight) and made the following card:
Can you see what I've used?
Yep, that's right! A whole bunch of shopping receipts which I've stuck down and slathered with Vintage Photo Distress ink. The cardboard to the side is one of those coffee cup holder things you get with takeaway coffees, and even the picture of the flowers was cut out of a gardening catalogue! The ribbon on my little tag is one of those that you get in the shoulders of tops - hate them, always cut them out.
And really quick - the whole thing took about 15 minutes! I also think it should work OK with the Fab n Funky Challenge, which this week is "keeping it clean". Now I know the vintage photo doesn't look particularly clean, but there are very few elements to the card, which is what I take the challenge to mean. If I'm talking rubbish - blame the whiskey!
