The Drunken Stampers challenge this week asked designers to dig out the scrap bin.
I have three of these: A bin for die cuts and pieces that I have made, but had no designated use for or didn't want to use after I'd made them; a bin for small bits and paper with weird holes; and, finally, the I Can Not Possibly Throw This Away bin.
There's the fiendish skull with fiery eyes. He's from a computer game box My Guy was going to throw away years ago. I cut the skull and surrounding "frame" and ran it through the Cuttlebug ... sandpaper here, sand paper there. Done.
The skull backer is a piece of scrap from a card I made only last week. The shiny on this backer is from Distressed Stickles that I squirted on and rubbed around.
A cemetery fence, from my made-it-and-didn't-use-it bin, was originally meant for the DS Mardi Gras challenge (alas, drunken party chick won out and cemetery scene went into the bin).
The sign is a bit of roof flashing I'd run through the Cuttlebug awhile back, just to see if it would emboss.
So, there you have it folks. A skull and cemetery themed birthday card. All made from stuff out of the scrap bins.
See you next Saturday! Prost!
