On UK Stampers we are having monthly challenges for 2012.  This is my effort!

The challenge was to make a hanging out of material from old clothes, metal, tissue and stamps.  We were supposed to use old stash only, nothing new.

I made the background out of an old tee-shirt stuck onto some left-over card from an old pad, the fish out of a tomato-paste tube and the lid from a can of octopus, the sand out of inked, stamped and scrunched tissue and a scrap of card, the bubbles out of Glossy Accents, and the weeds out of the packaging from last Christmas's pudding.  The jump rings and chain have been in my stash for ages.  The only new thing I used was my Cropadile, for punching the holes.

  1. Love the idea of the oval lid as the base for the fish shape!

    1. Thanks for your comment, Angelnorth!

      The oval tin had been begging me for months to turn it into something, but it just didn't happen. This challenge was just what I needed to prod me into action!

    1. Thanks for your comment, Salamander!

      I found the wording of this challenge quite intriguing, and I had all the stuff already, so it just sort-of designed itself!
