Grunge

Just chewing a Quality Street Toffee Penny for the last half an hour! Off my diet for yesterday and today and really enjoyed the "naughties". I have lost 2 stones (28 pounds) and have another 2 to go so decided that halfway was a good time to have a few treats!


I made this card a few weeks ago for a special friend using an alcohol ink background done onto glossy card and overstamped with a Magnolia swirl in Adirondack Raspberry. I then stamped these Paper Artsy Squiggly Ink stamps onto acetate and embossed before adding the Grungeboard flower which was coloured with Adirondack Colour Washes in Cranberry and Stonewashed before spritzing over the top with Glimmer Mists in Cranberry Zing and Snowflake.

Gosh I have sticky teeth. YUM!! Going to do some tidying up at my desk tonight and hopefully make something new. Isn't it WONDERFUL not to have to make anything "Christmassy"?!!
