CCC week #10

My Grandson has gone home we have had a brilliant time, I am exhausted but wouldn't have it any other way to spend time with him has been just great, we even did some crafting together he made pictures with my stamps and a bookmark and we made two mini books with all his favourite character stickers in and his fav colour RED there was some blue and yellow too, lol we have had a great time.

Last week I missed the deadline for CCC #9 I have  posted my creation which was done ultra quick last sunday night and you can see it here if you want to peek!

Soooooo last night I got stuck in (pun intended) to the latest CC challenge Distress Stickles, over at  Studio L3 set by the fabulous Linda.  Now I have only got two colours of Distress Stickles which are Frayed Burlip and Vintage Photo, this is where the challenge began - how to use them with effect.  This is what I came up with for my latest page in my book I am compiling.

The background was made using wild honey (top) and crushed olive (bottom) I stamped in crushed olive, dried marigold and bundled sage, stamped the words and punched out inking with the DI, flower made from book pages and punches added Dsitress Stickles to edges in both colours, Grunge dragonfly was coloured with crushed olive and vintage photo DS added, Grunge butterfly worn lipstick and DS added in frayed burlip. Vintage photo DS was added to the bottom of page, just because I can!! LOL.

  2. Maggie, this is an awesome card, and the Distress Stickles look so good with this design! I love the way you punched out the words in the sentiment stamp, and the great, earthy colors. Cool flower, too, and the butterfly and dragonfly are so pretty and sparkly!

  3. Wonderful colors! Love the birds hanging on the wire! The flower is awesome! Love this!

  4. Really pretty! I didn't do this week as I didn't have any stickles.
