Shopping our Stash #71 - GO GREEN!



Good morning, again :) This week at Shopping our Stash we want to see you GO GREEN! Either feature the colour green, or recycle something. I decided to recycle for my card - 

A humble popcorn box - we go through a lot of popcorn, and it turns out they're the perfect weight of cardboard for running through the Cuttlebug. Score!
I painted the plain side with Old Paper distress crackle paint.

Supplies: Old Paper distress crackle paint;
stickers from Kaisercraft
I bought these beautiful stickers from Kaisercraft about 6 months ago, and keep taking out the sheet, looking lovingly at them, and putting it away again. I used 4 (out of at least 30)...baby steps, baby steps!

Go check out what my SOS teamies have been up to for this challenge, and don't forget to leave them some love!

xoxo,
Jessi

Jessi - GORGEOUS! I never would have guessed how you made that crackled panel! AMAZING! The whole thing looks so beautiful. I can totally understand why you don't want to use those stickers! I usually keep them forever then make something for myself ;) lol

Hi Jessi! Those stickers ARE lovely! I can see why you want to usse them sparingly! But they look great with your torn, crackle-painted cardboard! Amazing!
