KKS challenge #63

Kraftin Kimmie challenge #63 Reduce, Reuse, Recycle. What a great challenge. At first I have to admit I was a bit stumped, I wasn't really sure what to do. So I headed to my recycling for some inspiration...I grabbed some old newspapers and a tab off a pop can... and I must say I'm really happy with the way it all came together.

I thought Buster the Bulldog was perfect for this challenge. So to start I scrunched up the newspaper and added some Tim Holtz frayed burlap distress ink. Some of the paw prints on the ribbon were hot pink which I didn't think Buster would appreciate. Besides...it didn't match. lol So I grabbed my R29 copic marker and made them red, then slid the pop can tab on. I distressed some of the edges of my paper to rough it up a bit and used kraft cardstock as my card base. I also got out my old tag maker and that's what the sentiment is framed with.

Again I loved this challenge, it just shows you what else you can add to your creations.

Let's see if we can be inspired (I'm most certain that we will) by the other Krafty girls and see what they used on this week's KKS Challenge.
