Grunge Flowers,

Evening,guys,hope you are all okay its been glorious here today sun shining and lovley and warm,too but its pouring with rain now oh well hope it clears by the morning.
Well over at the lovely Linda'a blog,compendium of Curiosities,this week the theme is Grunge flowers,and I have really loved playing with my grunge paper its so easy to use and easy to mould with too.
So this is what I have come up with got bit carried away opps,
I made a wee suitcase the link to the tutorial will not work now,I got it off Susies,blog but sure if you type it in u tube or google you can find it. If not let me know and I will put insructions,up on my blog.  I used 7 Gypsies papers,black card,then stamped onto some grunge paper cut out and adhered to my suitcase,then also stamped some leaves and cut out too.  The dress I just made up myself wanted it small enough to put inside the case.the edges of the case I have distressed,.
For my tag I used twinkling H20's paints,the flower is stamped on grunge paper cut out again same as the leaf too the stamps are from personal impressions. I have used the same paints on the flowers and leaf too. The rose in the background I stamped first onto the tag,then stamped again onto grunge paper then cut out and inked with fired brick,distress ink. Well hope you like my wee offerings,if you would like to find out more about the challenge,just pop over to Linda's studio 3 HERE to find out more.
I also meant to say that my blog header I got from the lovely Sue jefferson,which you can view more HERE

Oh, Cheryl, I LOVE your wee offerings! That sweet little suitcase with its wonderful dress and perfect grunge flower is sensational! What a brilliant design. I love the way you inked the rose-- it's a really cool shade of green, and goes so well with the cool beads on the little dress.

How cool are those Twinkling H2Os?! The shimmer is so dramatic! And your tag is every bit as gorgeous as your suitcase.

Your blog header is lovely, too. :-)
