Recognize it? My recycled item is the chipboard sheet that holds chipboard embellishments before you punch them out and use them. I think this particular sheet is the Pizazz Irresistibles. I started with a piece of White Daisy cardstock and heat embossed in white an image of random stamping from Playful Flourishes.
Next I took the chipboard sheet and used it like a stencil on top of the embossing. I sponged flowers and leaves in Hollyhock, Smokey Plum, and Pear. It looked like this when I was finished.
If you ever decide to try this, have some scraps of cardstock handy to mask around the image you are sponging. The images on the chipboard sheet are really close together, and it's easy to inadvertently sponge the image next to the one you intended to sponge. To finish turning trash to treasure, I used some Pear and Hollyhock scraps from my last card to finish trimming out this one. On top of the ribbon are two purple Sparkles. The sentiment is attached with dimensional adhesive.
This turned out to be a lot of fun. I like the watercolor-y look to the background I created. Thanks again for the inspiration, H2H!
