Penny Black Saturday Challenge - Recycle

This week's Penny Black Saturday Challenge is all about:

'Recycling'

We have a fabulous prize from the DT for this challenge:

I've recycled some corrugated card packaging on my tag...which I saved from the recycling bin ages ago...and cut into a star using a Nestie. The chicken is 'Present Pile' (of course by Penny Black)...and he was coloured using watercolour pencils. For the background, I inked a plain tag using Distress Inks (Bundled Sage, Evergreen Bough, Pine Needles, Stormy Sky & Faded Jeans), then stamped a balloon & stars background stamp (by Funstamps) in Memento 'Rich Cocoa' ink over the top. I inked around the edges of everything using 'Brushed orduroy' Distress Ink, and attached a sentiment banner (a Studio G stamp) using a staple. I added a few pieces of Card Candi, and attached a mixture of seambinding and string (recycled from an Abel & Cole Veg box!) to the top.


I'm also entering this tag into the following challenges:
