Plastic Fantastic

Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful creations. I'd like to introduce our talented Guest Designer who has agreed to join us for the next fortnight. Regular readers will know her wonderful work from past dares so a huge warm welcome to the lovely Marlou.

This week it's Rhi here to dare you and I'm on a recycling mission. I dare you to look again at the plastic packaging around you and transform it into a brand new card. It could be food packaging, craft packaging or just something plastic that's destined for the bin or recycling. Trim it, die cut it, alcohol ink it, crop-o-dile it, give it a new lease of life then share it via your blog for us all to see. Happy Recycling!

Excellent cards by the designers for inspiration! :-) I love using plastic for cardmaking! I couldn't stop at one, and I have plenty of scrap plastic on hand, so I've posted a couple of cards on my blog:

You girls inspire me so much.

You made my imagination fly last night and I made a creation (not quite a card ... you'll see) totally inspired by you.

I have put the idea on my blog
http://dollysdreamings.typepad.com/dollys_dreamings/
and credited you for the inspiration.
Thanks so much
