Moxie Fab Household item challenge

 When dose a taco Bell box, a piece of corrugated cardboard, and a grocery bag look like when you put them together? My take on the Moxie Fab Household item challenge.
I die cut a mat with Spellbinders labels 25  from the Taco Bell box we had for dinner tonight,I embossed it with a Sizzix embossing folder.I then die cut a smaller mat from a piece of corrugated cardboard.I then edged them with a sponge dabber and Tim Holt Tea Dye distress ink to bring out the texture. I did the same thing with a even smaller one also embossing it and inking it. I Stamped the Best Wishes ( Raisin Boat Stamp) with versamark ink and embossed it with a copper embossing powder and edging it with ink.
I die cut the flowers and leaves from the grocery bag.( spellbinder die's were used for the flowers as well as the leave's.I edged them with the Tea Die ink on a sponge and then rolled them and put them together with a Thero O Web Zots .I cut the card from Kraft paper and used a corner rounder on the  corner edging it with the tea dye ink.

This was a fun challenge that make me once again think out side the box.
Go dig in your recyle bin and create your own creation. I dare you!
