One of my Granddaughter's says this to her friend - and to anyone else appropriately - and so when I was thinking of what I could make for the current challenge at
where the theme is: to use something not usual on a card - in other words, recycle
I thought of the swing labels from some recently purchased clothing, which for some weird reason I could not thrown away.
How could I use them on a card?
I had a brain wave, and because the movie was still sitting in the top layers of memory in my brain, the phrase "You're Weird...." ran through. I immediately grabbed the stamp I had purchased from TYPO quite a while ago and not used - and began to plan!
Before you choke on your wine/gin/coffee/tea or drink of choice, I did not pay this for the said scarf - I was in fact given the scarf when I purchased some other things while on holiday's in Canberra - must have been a good customer to be given the scarf!
The name of the clothing label also appealed - as the wife of a man whose whole career was in the 'smutters' or clothing business - he travelled in ladies clothing - I thought it was a great label for clothing, and I emphasized the name by adding threads of pink and white twine to the label.
I also had a Julie Nutting doll stamp not used yet, so she got stamped up and coloured in and I paper pieced her dress and added some extra colour with the Copics as well. She was put onto a black label and the threadz label layered on top of the black label and under the girl.
I coloured the girl's hair blond, as I thought this card would be a good card to give to Georgia - who is blond in all the photo's I have seen of her: a friend of my Granddaughter, and my Granddaughter agreed Georgia would like it and took it, thank goodness! Hope Georgia does get it and does likes it! I have embossed the background for some more texture and added some bling, and the sentiment and mounted them onto a black blank card.
I have been told since that Georgia does not have blond hair naturally - and my response was: who does? Mine would be a very pale imitation of its current colour if I did not do a little dying (dieing) occasionally - with lots and lots of silver highlights!
I think I am a probably a bit weird - I certainly have a slightly twisted sense of humour - so this sentiment is so suitable for me to use - perhaps the reason I purchased the stamp originally !
Why not go across to
see what the other's have used in their recyling adventure
and then look around your space - what is there that could be usefully used?
Better than putting it into landfill!
