Wow week #13 already at the CC Challenge at Studio L3 set by Linda,  you will see from my blog that I have not been posting lately which is due to family stuff not leaving anytime to craft - see sad face :-(  
 I missed out on week #12 chipped enamel so those of you crafters with eagle eyes will see that I have combined the two on the latest page of my CC challenge book.

Background was made using DI wild honey, victorian velvet, tumbled glass, bundled sage and pumice stone onto watercolour paper, then I used the negative of the small flower from TH tattered florals die to sponge in wild honey, tumbled glass and victorian velvet, then stamped swirls in pumice stone.  Flower cut from tattered florals die and technique followed. For the metal frame and brad I followed technique for week #12, hope this ok with you Linda as I didn't want to miss doing a week - I am hoplessly addicted to this challenge!! lol;

Items used Tim Holtz Stamps; Distress Inks ; Alterations Die; others Nestabilites Die; Stampin' Up! metal frame and brads; Classic Ink;

Bye for now


  1. I love your flower, and the colour combination you used is just gorgeous.

  2. Oh, Maggie, of course it's fine that you combined the two challenges! I missed you last week, and I'm so happy you were able to play along again!

    Your grunge flower is so beautiful! Those colors are gorgeous, and I love the way you inked it. The background tag is stunning, too, and you're so clever to use the negative of the die cut to create a stencil! Your chipped enamel frame and brad look awesome as well.

    Bravo! And Welcome Back!!!

  3. This is totally fab, just adore it. Annette x
