DCM-Tagged


This weeks dare was set by Rhi, she said;
Everything we buy has packaging, some of it excessive, some of it beautifully designed. Tags, labels, stickers... all sorts of bits and bobs that we can recycle onto cards.I dare you to make a card using a tag, label, sticker or anything else you can find, thats from packaging and would normally end up in the bin. Of course you can ink it, change it, distress it and add anything else you like!

Well, I kept the idea in the back of my mind and kept my eye open for useful packaging. Low and behold as I was putting in my disposable contact lenses in this morning the plastic packaging cried out to me; 'make me into baloons they called', so I did and here is the result, hope you like it.
The double dare was to make it into a card for a man, I don't think i quite achieved that but a boy would love it and he'll be a man one day!

Hi - I've somehow missed your blog when looking at the DCM dares recently, but you have some lovely things here. The balloons idea is very inventive. I love it.
