Recycle Reuse...

For this challenge at Frosted Designs we had to recycle and reuse so I thought I would try a technique that I have been wanting to use for a while and that a friend has shown me.. I used an old soft drink can (cleaned out of course) to make these beautiful and funky embelishments to add to my layout...

Firstly I cut both ends off the can then run it through the CuttleBug to emboss it. I then used my Stayzon ink to highlite the embossed pattern.

I think these homemade embellishments add the shine and funk that I wanted on this layout and I know I will definately use this technique again..
