Tuesday Taggers: Recycle





The first image is to show the material I have used which would normally be thrown away. A tomato puree tube. I have been using these for ages. They are just brilliant. You can cut them easily, sew through them on a sewing machine, pierce them or use punches on them. Just great.


The second image is after I have flatten the tube out by using the handle of my scissors to rub with.



The third image is after I have passed the metal through my Cuttlebug with an embossing folder.



I then rubbed black ink ontop to pick up the high spots, cut to an oval, mounted onto black card which was stamped with Versamark and Pearlx brushed over to highlight. The other images were then added by mounting with silicone.

Fantastic Laura, I do the same sort of thing with coke cans, although they are not as soft, but we drink more coke than we have tomato puree - lol!!!!

Great creation xxxx
