Recycling a quiche tin foil dish

I came across Unscripted Sketches and this is challenge 07 atm:

I decided to use the base of an individual quiche tin foil dish with cuttlebug embossing. The circle uses d'vine swirls and has been inked with stazon violet and the strip across the bottom is from the rim of the foil dish and was embossed with one of the border folders.

I had to use lots of little mauve brads on the circle because it wouldn't stick down on to the flower, which, btw, was originally white, so I just swiped it with the violet ink pad to match. The PP is DCWV pocket full of posies. The purple background is a lovely satin sheen.

Day 54 on 365 cards was 'recycled elements', so this card qualifies for that.

This card is also good for Joanna Sheen's May challenge: 'recycling', for The Cuttlebug Spot challenge 31: 'embossing something other than paper' and also for the Alphabet challenge I is for ... inking.

It was difficult to get a photo because of the reflection on the foil, so I'm showing two different angles (as is often the case, you can see the embossing and inking better if you click on the pictures to enlarge):

Inchy by inch Birds

This week's theme on Inchy by Inch is 'birds', so I've used my Hero Arts night owl stamp, stamping him on to a piece of Be Blessed paper - you can see where it was taken from in the second picture. Colouring is with copics:

Inchy by Inch F inchies

Last week's prompt on Inchy by Inch was F for inchies. I combined two or three pieces from Crafty Individuals papers, inked and added the F:

Something completely different: Twinchies 2: pink and green

I've made two twinchies for this week's challenge on Something Completely Different.

I used a piece of unknown pink paper that had a heart pattern on it and then stamped with the large Tim Holtz stamp with Brilliance pearlescent ivy and cler embossed. I liked the pattern it gave on top of the pink patterned paper because the slightly darker pink of the hearts just subtly shows through in places.

The images are taken from Crafty Individuals People & Places Miniatures.

I'm also linking for challenge 30 on One Stop Craft: 'vintage'.

Here they are with the Tim Holtz stamp that I used:
