ALLSORTS ~ Recycle

Welcome to another fab challenge at ALLSORTS
Helene wants you to
This week we have a fantastic new sponsor
AquaMarkers are a dual tipped water based, pigmented ink marker with the advantage of being water soluble. They can be easily blended, even when dried, giving the effects of water-colour paint but with the convenience of a marker. The water colour quality of the markers makes an ideal accompaniment to an artist's tool box, providing a clean and convenient alternative to water colour paints
I have recycled a tube from a kitchen roll!
I flattened the tube & covered with papers, added a tag  ~ Really not happy with the end result & was going to make something else, but ran out of time :-(
I like the idea, but just not happy with colours & not enough distressing for my liking ~ lol
Never mind!!!
I have used:
Letraset ~ AquaMarkers
Magnolia ~ Tilda with wooden spoon & Swirl
Branch punch
Nestabilities ~ Circle
Nellie Snellen ~ Doily
Martha Stewart ~ Pinking Edge Punch
Flowers from stash
Thanks for looking

Its gorgeous Fleur, love that idea and am definitely going to give it a go.

Nicola said...

Your tag is great you are so fussy!!! Maybe it's because you have used a different medium to normal (pens instead of distress inks) they produce different effects. Really you have nothing to worry about. Nicola xx

Mary J said...

OMG, Fleur, this is just gorgeous!!! If you don't like it, you can always send it to me! ;)
