Birthday Card and recycled train tickets - Scrap for Help -Using Bubble Wrap!

Hi there it's been another very hot day here in the UK after a little cooler spell over the weekend.  I'm so glad it's staying hot for the kiddies who have all now started their holidays here in the UK.

Scrap for Help are asking you to use bubble wrap and recycled materials this month.  Because of the heat, I haven't done much in the scrapping line this week but I did have a play with some bubble wrap.
I have been collecting loads of these while commuting over to Birmingham on the train.

I played with Distress inks and Stazon on bubble wrap , printing onto the wrong side of the
 ticket as the right side has a plastic coating and doesn't take the inks very well.
 I overstamped with various stamps with a time or travel theme mixing
 and masking the stamps to achieve the effect I wanted. I cut some into tickets
and left others as they are to take more embellishments

 Using an old sheet of practice watercolour paper I again played around with the bubble wrap
and inks before over-stamping with the same theme.
I cut the various tag shapes from the background  using the method from above
 to make this layered card,  adding ribbon and a button
Oh and a tag which I put inside! 
Sorry about the quality of the photos the light was so bright outside I came indoors to take them.
I am entering these for 

You still have time to enter, why not try playing around and see what you come up with.  As always thank you so much for looking and for your continued support on my blog. 

Hope you all have a wonderful Tuesday.  Here everyone is talking about the new Royal Babe!
