Tuesday Morning Sketches #349

Hello again!  I've got my new project from Tuesday Morning Sketches to share with you!  Meet Sketch # 349.  

Instead of making a card this week, I have made a tag. When I used the sketch, I rotated it vertically and  replaced the circle elements with flowers made out of cash register receipts.  The tag is G45 packaging, and was painted with white gesso and craft paints, stenciled with modeling paste, stamped,  and then embellished.  

If you want to play along you have through Sunday, May 1 to enter this week's  challenge.  Melissa is giving away a Freckled Fawn embellishment pouch as this week's prize!  Please visit my fellow teammates to see what they have made for you this week!

Thanks for stopping by my blog and having a look!  I would like to enter the challenge below:

Frilly and Funkie: It's not easy being green, for up-cycling packaging and receipts.

What a gorgeous tag and pretty well all made from recycled materials. Flowers from cash register receipts - who would have ever thought but very clever. Thanks for joining us at Frilly and Funkie.

Brilliant idea to use the receipts as flowers! I love that because we always have plenty of leftover paper from the many purchases. Sweet tag with such lovely shades of blue. Thanks for playing along with us at Frilly and Funkie "It's Not Easy Being Green" challenge this week.

What a clever way to reuse your packaging and receipts! They make such interesting backgrounds to your flowers! Thanks for joining us at Frilly & Funkie for the "It's Not Easy Being Green" challenge!

Great mixed media project Lee, brilliant use of receipts while destroying the evidence of our "necessary crafting expenditures" I might add!! LOL Not that I would ever do that. :o)

Great job on all your recycling!!

My jaw dropped when I saw this tag! It is stunning! I guess the dots on the flowers are embossing paste? So beautiful and a great view of the sketch.
