Using a Product NOT Intended for Paper Crafts

I recently participated in Greta's-90-Minute Scramble-#94, over at the Hero Arts Flickr Group.
Greta asked us to use a product NOT intended for paper crafts.
I have saved (recycled) several items to use with my paper crafting.
On this card, I used a small empty bottle top and its cap to do some circle stamping.
90-Minutes sure seem to pass so quickly, when I'm creating.
Usually, I begin with one design, and then I completely change it.
Then, I literally "SCRAMBLE" to complete, photograph, & upload my creation,
in the remaining minutes.
(OH, but it's so much fun!)
Thankfully, the CAS(E) This Sketch #94, by Donna Mikasa, came to mind as I scrambled.

This photo shows the bottle top & bottle cap.

This photo shows my practice stamping with my first idea on the left.
Then, I decided to change one distress ink color, and practiced stamping my final design.

The "Splatter" stamp is by Invoke Arts.
Remember eyelets?  I've used one of many that have sat unused for years. 


Thanks for your visit!

how clever to use the bottle caps to create the design, Martha! Love stamping of the caps on the neon colours! Maybe I should start collecting the caps too!
