Alter it for Charisma

Sorry this post is a bit late today and is short and sweet - I've had a bit of a panic on with monkeys over the past 24 hours - suddenly had to finish off a batch unexpectedly and have only just finished in time to go off to work :p

Our new challenge this week at Charisma Cardz is Alter It and I have made this little plant from - wait for it - a pot noodle! I started by using alcohol inks to colour the rim of the little plastic pot then modpodged some book paper to cover the plastic then after drying it I coloured it also with the alcohol inks. I added various trims round the top then some patterned paper a die cut and stamped bird - Paper Artsy, a few flowers and vines and finished it all off with some sticky backed gems.

No one would know it was a pot noodle tub now. Love the colour chosen. That bird is a great addition with the little vine. Thank you for sharing this with us at Smudgy Antics this week and hope you visit again very soon

Fabulous - love the colour and who would have thought it - Pot Noodles. ? Of course, I am assuming you emptied the contents straight into the bin and just wanted the pot shape ???!!! LoL
