I need to be quick off the mark with this week's Grungy Monday challenge as I'm off to Paris on Thursday for five days with four old school friends. Just soooo excited at both seeing the girls and Paris (I've cycled the length and breadth of France but never got to Paris!).
So this weeks challenge is ....... Distress Stickles ....... apart from Rock Candy I only have one bottle - Dried Marigold. Why Dried Marigold I have no idea and I haven't used the DI for years either! So inspired by some absolutely wonderful flowers on Swirlydoos amazing site I made a flower from coffee filter papers. I only had brown ones, so when spritzed with Pink Glimmer Mist they came up rather orange, but then it worked well with Dried Marigold - what a coincidence! (I love the way the papers have picked up the old muddy bits of spray in my spray box - another happy coincidence!)
I decided a few weeks ago that I would start to use up a whole load of die cut letters bought years ago when I first started scrapbooking. The papers they matched have long since been used. I covered them with old book paper, sanded the edges and applied Dried Marigold DI and then covered them with the Distress Stickles. They actually look (quite appropriately) frosty!
So do click the link here for Linda's great challenge on Studio L3 and to see three absolutely stunning pieces by Gillian, Jason and Linda. And here for more information about Tim's Distress Stickles.
Have a great week everyone. x
