It's August 1 (how did THAT happen!?) and time for a new challenge at A Blog Named Hero.
Many of you know that usually when I make a card, a few of the first attempts often end up in the recycling, but I rarely set out to recycle something to use in a card. But there's lots of things you could use - some pretty packaging, old gift wrap or ribbon, I even considered using the rim as a yogurt tub as a stamp. In the end, I had some bubble wrap from a recently-arrived package from GinaK, and I decided to see how that would ink up.
I used Versamark on the bubbles and then overstamped in Neon pink with the heart from the Brush Strokes set. Because the pink was still wet when I put embossing powder on it, it also was embossed and stayed nice and bright when I sponged London Fog ink over top. I love how the white and pink really pop! I loved it so much I made another one!

Can't wait to see what you recycle to make your creation!
