Recycle or re-use

 Tag Tuesday still has another week left for it's challenge.

Valerie chose the theme this time around, which is Recycle or Re-use.

A great theme and I think most artists can always recycle and re-use plenty of things found around the home, office or craft room.

The most fun part of recycling for me in my craft room, is using up old birthday and christmas cards, cereal and other food boxes and clothing tags, using them for postcards, tags, journalling, journal covers, atcs, the list is endless.

Cards are my favourite items to use to make Tags, they usually have quite thick smooth card...which is what I used for this challenge.

I die cut the tag from an old card, purely because I like this section of the glitter, only realising afterwards that I cut the tag upside down, although I don't think that matters much.

I found some lilac paper in my stash that I stamped over to make a grungy background as well as some script and used that to cover the printed section of the tag.
I added part of a feather, then the dancing girl after shading her dress pale pink.
I found a couple of sentiments to tie in with the girl dancing.

This tag will be tied to my friend's gift as her birthday is coming up in a few days time, I wonder if she will notice the tag is part of a recycled birthday
Do pop along and join in with the challenge, you can find it here at Tag Tuesday

I'm so glad that I am not the only one who sometimes puts her things upside down. It doesn't really matter with your tag though. It is so beautiful what you created out of it.
