Grungy Monday # 20

I am back and ready to play.Our challenge for Grungy Monday #20 is to have a Party with Distress Stickles. Linda has added a link so we can see all of the wonderful colors this Ranger product comes in. I chose to use flutterby die cuts for my distress stickles, inspired by the technique used in A Compendium of Curiosities by Tim Holtz. My friend Chris gave me the die cuts. Thanks Chris.
List of supplies:
Adirondack paint dabbers (Ranger) - pitch black, pearl
Alcohol Inks (Ranger)-stream, bottle, sailboat blue
Distress Stickles (Ranger) - aged mahogany, faded jeans, black soot
Distress Inks-(TH Ranger) - faded jeans, black soot
Stamps- TH Stampers Anonymous- ticket flourish and words
paper- TH, recycled cardboard package
other- wire, glossy accents, Ranger black enamel accents, glue dots, TH Ideology stapler

Thank you for looking!


  1. Oooh, very pretty Donna. I never think of how to use this die. Of curse I HAD to have it when it came out and not sure if I've ever used it yet. Might have to try this, it looks great with the stickles!

  2. Terrific background and butterfly Donna. Its a magical tag. Enjoy the weekend, Annette x

  3. I love that butterfly! And I know how large it is! Beautiful tag.

  4. Oh Donna! Another delicious piece! Your background is like a watercolor garden and the dragonfly ... she's flitting above the blooms ...
