I am so late! The latest Grungy Monday challenge has been out for ages and I haven't made anything for it! So I decided to rectify that and made this little wall hanging.
The challenge is, in essence, to cut a space from foam for an item to be embedded in a scrapbook page or piece of art but I didn't have any foam so used some really thick cardboard that I couldn't bear to throw away (I am such a squirrel!). I covered it with paper from the Lost and Found paper stash - I am not usually very colourful but I decided that today
was a day to throw caution to the wind and break with tradition! I added some Heirloom Gold Perfect Pearls Mist over the paper as I think I am addicted to it! I punched four circles from some leftover Stampin' Up paper from this project as well as making a mini rosette (I really do squirrel everything away!). I used paint dabbers (Watermelon, Cloudy Blue, Lettuce and Gold) to colour three letters, a star and a crown from Tim's mixed mini's grungeboard. The wings were painted in Watermelon, lightly sprayed with silver Cosmic Shimmer and then painted with Rock Candy Distress Crackle Paint. I 'smooched' a little gold paint dabber over the top of them - I couldn't help myself! The circles, letters and star were put inside four 'previously enjoyed' Budweiser bottle caps and covered very liberally with glossy accents (and I waited very impatiently for them to dry!). I punched a bottle top from the paper, lightly covered it, and the crown, with glossy accents and the put them together. I just need to put a little hook on the back now...!
I am so sorry that this was so late - must try harder!
