Sparkly Grunge or Grungy Sparkle? on Merry Monday #83

Merry Monday this week has this lovely inspiration picture and the theme is to use stripes. red, chocolate and stars or hearts.

 Current Challenge
 Red and chocolate and stripes I could do but no Christmas hearts and horrors no Christmas star either. I'm still waiting for the large stamp from Stampin' Up to come - apparently it will be delivered Monday - it's been out of stock for some time - but that is too late for the challenge. So I had a rummage and found a sheet of freebie stamps from a magazine and one of them was a star. It had a sort of sketchy, grungy look to the edge so my mind went to the Gorgeous Grunge stamps from SU which still hadn't seen any ink.


 So this is what I eventually came up with. It looked better in my mind than it does in reality! The grungy stripes were stamped in red and chocolate and the star in red. The bow is from a memory box die. Then I decided there was too much white space so I added the three small stars, then some red glitter glue to the edge of the large star!  Still not entirely happy with it and the photo is not the best either! the windowsill was the only place I could find to take it as everywhere else was covered in things from the hall  as I've had the decorators in. Slowly putting everything back in its rightful place now.


  1. Very nice card. I think the 3 little stars are a perfect touch. TFS

  2. What a lovely star with that pretty bow holding it, Sue! I like the grunge stripes and the little stars too! Thanks for sharing this with us at Merry Monday!
