Pilin' On the Recycling

The theme this fortnight at Pile It On is Recycle. We're sponsored by Dr. Digi's House of Stamps. I used their hilarious Walkies digi stamp, along with a humorous sentiment stamp from Viva Las VegaStamps.

I started with a background of corrugated cardboard (the stuff you get at Panera Bread) and colored it with several inks. I added a layer of crackle paint to the "barn" portion. The grass is leftover from an order of sushi. The fence pieces are wood shapes that I painted with crackle paint.

Pile It On: Recycle
Retro Rubber Challenge: Critter + old rubber stamp (I've had the VLVS sentiment stamp for over 3 years...first time inking it up!)
