Bloggers Challenge 170

This week the Bloggers Challenge is to reuse/recycle somewhere on our art piece. I couldn't wait for this challenge. My image panel is my reuse/recycle. It actually was the packaging from the children's chopsticks at a local restaurant. I took my grandson there for dinner and his chopsticks (actually more like small tongs) came in the package with this as the cover. I just loved it and kept the packaging until there was a recycle challenge. My background is a Shimmer Sheetz embossed with the bamboo embossing folder. I used cactus green Stazon ink on the bamboo.
I think maybe I liked this panel too because I was born in the Year of the Dog.

Very cute, love the bamboo on the side and isn't amazing where we find things to use in our art? Great thinking saving that darling image.
