Sock label to Bookmark - recycling at Tuesday taggers


Our Theme at Tuesday Taggers this week is recycling and was chosen by our lovely teamie Ildiko. I bought a pair of ski socks during all the snow to wear with my hiking boots. This was the label on one side...
and this is what it looked like on the other. I really liked the colour, so I hung onto it, thinking tag or bookmark. I added some embossing, some scraps of paper and a bit of recycled cork matting and turned it into a bookmark.

The flower stamp is one of a relatively new range by 'Stamp to your Art's Content'. This link will take you straight to them. The stamps used for the silver embossing are from Penny Black. Thanks for looking and do check out some of the wonderful creations by my amazing teamies. Hope you get chance to join in this week!

I'll be back later hopefully with some thanks for the wonderful birthday cards I've received.

This is lovely Sally. You were so right to hang on to that packaging. As you say the colour is lovely and I love that image. I haven't been across to Stamp to Your Arts Content for ages and it's only about 15/20 mins from me. Mind you the website is much improved now too so I'll follow the link.
