Inky Impressions Challenge - Recycle It!!



Good Morning Everyone!! Happy St. Patrick's Day to everyone!!!! It's Wednesday and time for another fun and fabulous Inky Challenge. This weeks challenge is to RECYCLE IT. To add a recycled product to your card or project. This weeks challenge will be going on for TWO WEEKS so plenty of time to come on over and join in the fun HERE.



For my creation today I used this darling image LiLi's Slumber Party. I just LOVE this cutie!!! Since I was using this darling image I thought I would cut a strip of cardboard off one of our popcorn boxes and add it to my card. I think it worked out perfectly!!!! Have you ever seen Inky Dinky Drops??? They make perfect flower centers and great little touches to your card or projects. Inky sells them in many different colors you can find them HERE.


Thanks so much for stopping by today and I hope you get a chance to play along. We would LOVE to see what you create. You could also get a chance to be Inked by the Inkettes. No need to use Inky Images but if you have them we would LOVE to see you use them!!!

I hope everyone has a wonderful day and HAPPY ST. PATRICK'S DAY!!!!

Here's the Recipe

  • Image - Inky Impressions stamped in Momento Ink and Colored with Copics
  • Sentiment - Inky Impressions stamped in Stazon Ink
  • Paper - Whisper White, So Saffron, Lavendar Lace, Kioshi Basic Grey DP, Cardboard Strip from Pop Corn box
  • Accessorie - K&C Company Flowers, Purple Roses, Inky Dinky Drops, Misc Stick Pins, Lavendar Ribbon, CB Folder, Corner Punch, Nesties
