Grungy Monday - Rock Candy Distress ...

Another Grungy Monday challenge completed! This week I wanted to keep it simple so I followed the Master of Distress and did a tag! We needed to use either Rock Candy Distress Stickles or Rock Candy Distress Crackle Paint but given that I have both in my stash I went the whole hog and used them both:

I used some Vintage Shabby paper for the background which I inked in Peeled Paint and Stormy Sky Distress Inks then covered the tag in Rock Candy Stickles with my finger. The leaf and butterflies are die cut Grungeboard which I have inked with the same colours as the background then stamped onto them with archival black ink - the leaf I have covered liberally with crackle paint and the butterflies I have used both on - I got quite an interesting texture by using the stickles over the top of the crackle! I also inked and crackled the adage ticket and added a silver gilding flaked 'ribbon' and an inked reinforcer. Simples! Same time next week, enjoy the rest of your weekend - I'm off to sunny North Wales tomorrow for a few days and hope to come back full of inspiration after spending time surrounded by the mountains of Snowdonia and the sea!
