recycling and UTEE


On the Secretcrafter they would like us to do some recycling and at Saturdaysworkout it's UTEE day .

I have combined the two and coloured a wooden butterfly with distress inks and then a couple of layers of UTEE over it.
( I tried making an embellishment by melting UTEE and then dipping a stamp in it but that kept on breaking so I gave up.)
The background is a piece of cardboard from a box which has been cut with a Nestability label and then put through a Cuttlebug folder.

I think I will use it as a cover for a mini album .
