Pile It On! Challenge - Recycle!

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


Our sponsor this month is MelonHeadz Illustrating:
Prize - 1 Bundle from MelonHeadz Illustrating!

I recycled a piece of corrugated kraft card that was part of the packaging for a set of cake tins, and combined it with papers from the 'Prince Charming' pad by Recollections/Michaels. The image is 'Birthday Dog' by Penny Black, which I coloured using watercolour pencils. I distressed all of the edges a little, then added some faux stitching using my CutterBee Bug and a black gel pen. The sentiment stamp is from a set by Lili of the Valley.

Here are the challenges I've piled on:

For more inspiration from my lovely DT buddies, including new team mates Marciava & Valerie, please pop over to the Pile It On! Challenge.
