Green X3!!!

Check out my entry for the Crafter's Companion USA March "Going Green" Challenge:

This is green times 3! 
1. It's recycled. I make my own magazine holders out of empty cereal boxes.
I use them to store my stamps also :) 

2. This magazine holder is also covered with some brown paper that I saved from the packaging on one of my online orders. 

3. And of course, the greenery of the "Ivy" stamp from CC. 

It's a paint fusion stamp. I stamped it in brown and painted it with acrylic paints. 
I only did one side of it because I want to practice more before I do the rest of it. 
The paint fusion stamps are pretty neat because they come with a reusable practice sheet. 
I used some gold highlights just for fun :) 

In order to stamp and paint on the holder, I filled it up with magazines 
and a hardcover book.
I really enjoyed this challenge because I think it's important to reuse & recycle...
and I was looking forward to reusing and making an altered project ;) 

Thanks for looking! Remember to enter my giveaway!

  1. Awesome project Karla! I love that it is green times 3! Those Sheena Douglas paint fusion stamps are just so versatile and perfect for the Going Green challenge at Crafter's Companion. I love the bits of gold you used to add some sparkle. Thanks for joining in the challenge this month. Hugs, Stacy

  2. Love it, love, love it! Great use of a cereal box, I'm going to have to lift that idea for a box to keep hubby's hunting and gun mags organized. They can get a little out of control! Thanks for playing along at the Crafter's Companion Challenge Blog, and congrats on being the Friday Fave!
