Going beyond green...

2nd posting today scroll down for YNS challenge

Red and yellow and pink and Green...Ok we do want to stick with green again this week at Inky Impression Challenges just the other kind of green that is growing ever so popular. Recycling / Reusing, this can be done on so many levels. You can actually make some nifty stuff from actual trash or soon to be recycled products.  Disassembling  and old card and recreating a new one with some of the old card stuff can work quite nicely as well. Do whatever else means reuse/recycle to you. I chose to use an aluminum can and some corrugated cardboard for my project. If you click on image you get a better view!


I was able cut the aluminum can with on of my Spellbinders dies however when using s smaller die I'd suggest you leave the initial cut reaming in the die ( it really is wedged in there)and running a second cut through with more aluminum and be cautious it's SHARP! We'll now it's your turn to shown us your "it's the new green" work! 
Here are the additional challenges this card is included in:
Artful Inkables  Birthday Card
Creative Card Crew  Going Dotty (various brads and buttons)
La- La- Land Recycling
Frosted Designs  Background Stamping (I stamped on the corrugated cardboard)
Saturday Spotlight   Slick (the Aluminum can stars are pretty slick!
Little Red wagon  Copics (mine are actually Prismacolor alcohol based markers)

                 Happy St. Patrick's Day!
