Pile It On! Challenge - Recycle

We have another fun Pile It On! Challenge starting today...and the theme is:


Our sponsor this month is Dr Digi's House of Stamps:
Prize - 2 Digis of the winner's choice!

I recycled a piece of corrugated cardboard packaging from a set of cake tins...and picked some papers in co-ordinating shades of brown and blue to match from the 'Prince Charming' pad by Michaels. The image is from the 'Man's Best Friend' set by Penny Black which I coloured using watercolour pencils. I distressed the edges a little, then added some faux stitching using my CutterBee Bug and a black gel pen. The sentiment stamp is from the 'Cupcakes' set by Hero Arts.

Here are the challenges I've piled on:
For more inspiration from my lovely DT buddies, please pop over to the Pile It On! Challenge.
