A Spoon Full of Sugar Challenge - Recycle


Here is my card for the challenge at A Spoon Full of Sugar where the theme is Recycle. For this card I used gift wrap and a tag from WH Smiths. I love this paper and thought it would go well with this little rock star!! I paper pieced the boy by stamping him onto K & Co papers and I did some shading with distress ink and a white Sakura souffle pen. I did some doodling on the tag and coloured some of the stars white with my pen. I don't like to over-complicate men's cards so I stepped away before it got too busy!
Hope you like!!
Love Becky xx
