BASB...Challenge #4

The latest challenge at the BASB is to 'go green', or 'trash to treasure'. So basically take something that you would normally throw away and get creative!

Here is what I did. Though this is not totally my idea, I had a bit of a different take on it. I started with some plastic packaging (that I was going to throw away anyways!), some rub-ons ( I have tons of these!) and my Quickutz:

First, I rubbed the rub-ons all over the plastic (in no particular fashion):

Next, I used my Quickutz to cut out the letters that are to be my LO title:

I LOVE the random 'snowy' look of them. I used silver rub-ons with a black background, but you could make so many color combos. All being so unique and different. Here is a close-up of my title:

and...ta da... my completed LO. Of course, I also used the fabulous Scarlet Lime November kit (I just LOVE the colors!):

I had seen this idea used before for embelishments, but never for letters. So, I thought that it would be different. This is my take on the challenge. Give this a try or create something of your own. We would really LOVE to see what you come up with. There is still time. You have until January 14th. Oh, and did I mention there is a really cool prize for the winner? You can check out the challenge post here. Good Luck and have FUN!
