Finally getting it out & playing with it

I've had a pack of grunge paper sitting in my craft room almost since the moment it hit these shores and have I done anything with it? Have I eckers like. So I did a little search on the Internet and found some tutorials on making flowers with it. It's been a while since my hands were covered in ink and paint. Even my craft sheet came out once I blew the dust off it.

The rose I haven't done anything with yet, I'll save it for any future project which requires such an adornment. The flatter flower was more suitable to go on a quick project such as a card. And as I haven't joined in with the Monday Mojo challenge, I went and had a look at their blog & decided my embellishment could be incorporated perfectly. I chose lighter colours such as yellow and pale orange so that the flower would stand out in contrast, keeping it as the focal point.

Yes the flowers were fun to make, yes the craft room looks like a bomb hit it (& so do I come to think of it) but will I find them addictive and carry on making them? Difficult to say. At the moment, I'm thinking no but I always find myself eating my words haha. Time, as they say, will tell. Now I wonder what else I can make with grunge paper?

Hi Paul! You left SUCH a lovely comment on my blog...thank you! =D I've been peeking around at yours, and you are QUITE talented indeed!
I thought this little rose was made out of clay, but to read you made it out of paper, really amazed me. It's just beautiful!! I love your card and your little albums too! I know I'll be back often!

Lurve the card paul. the colours are lovely and the inked grunge goes perfectly. The stamp you have used is very nice. I too have recently made a grunge flower which is sitting on the top of my decorated retreat saving tin.Lol.
