One Stitch at a Time Challenge 103

This week at One Stitch at a Time, our theme is Reuse or Recycle! Our sponsor this week is Creative Craft World.
This week, I worked with an image from Beary Dust called Berry.

I coloured the image with Promarkers and mounted it onto some card from the Papermania Capsule collection. The backing paper came from the same collection. The black card is Coredinations Black Magic which I embossed using a Sizzix folder in my Wizard, before sanding the embossed areas.

As for the recycling/reusing, here it comes! The flower was made using newspaper. I did shade it with Promarkers to soften the effect a little. I cut some scallopped circles in my Wizard with a nestibility die and joined the layers with a brad before scrunching and then unfolding each layer. I added two skeleton leaves to complete the effect.

Then, there's a bit of re-use going on. I've had some of those wire spring 'beads' for years, and I strung them onto a bit of jewellery wire, adding a clear 'jewel' I found at the bottom of a jewellery box. I then curled the ends of the wire around some round-nosed tweezers, and attached the result to some more of the Black Magic card with a couple of jewelled brads.

Hoep you can join us this week!
