A little bit of kink - Recycled book - Business card holder

This project is for the Smudgy Antics challenge – recycle something and can be found here ;http://smudgyantics.blogspot.com/2012/01/weekly-challenge-recycle-something.html

and the Delicious Doodles Challenge http://deliciousdoodleschallenge.blogspot.com/2012/01/challenge-10-all-things-new.html the new thing I am using is my new digi stamp which is linked a little further down.

The Items I have recycled are a book and wallpaper samples. And what I’ve turned them into is a business card holder. It would certainly liven up the office desk!

I’m not doing a tutorial for this post but if anyone would like one I could do one and post it.

The book was one I picked up in a job lot and had a damaged spine and water damage to the first few pages so wasn’t much use. I removed the covers and the damaged pages and used the rest of it. The red and black layers are old wallpaper samples, I think wall paper makes fab backing paper and this is really good quality and very thick. The image is from http://www.smearedink.com/ and it is called Femdom- Submissive, I coloured this with promarkers, didn’t really add a great deal of colour to it just a bit of coral, dusky pink and blush. The little tags at the bottom are Tim Holtz grunge board that I covered with embossing ink and covered with Debbi Moore Print magic in Christmas red. I put on the pearl gems and made the little mini handcuffs with jump rings. Along the spine I added a length of silver chain just to finish it off.
