La-La Land Crafts Inspiration Friday - Recycle or Alter Something

Good morning! It's Friday and that means it's time for another Inspiration Friday over on the La-la Land Crafts blog

This week our inspirational theme is Recycle or Alter Something 

I altered a chipboard scalloped circle and used Cheerleader Marci

I first covered the chipboard with papers from Prima's Sun Kiss collection, sanding the edges and in between the scallops. Then I layered on ribbons and lace, sliding a sports ticket from Little Yellow Bicycle and an adage ticket from Tim Holtz Idea-Ology range. 

I coloured Marci using Copic Markers
Skin -E000, 00, 11, R20
Hair - E21, 23, 25, 27
Green - YG00, 03, 06
Orange - YR02, 14, 18
Grey - C1, C3

I trimmed her out and adhered here down with 3D foam dots. Then I layered on some flowers, pearls from The Hobby House and a button flossed with bakers twine. 

Finally, I threaded some orange ribbon through the punched hole at the top. 

Challenges - 
Craft Us Crazy - Anything but a card and/or altered item
4 Crafty Chicks - Flowers 
Copic Marker Europe - Skin tones (used E000, 00, 01, 11. R20)
