Rock Candy Distress

Hello bloggers, it has been a tough, depressing week at our house, and having work block blogger from their computers has just added to my misery. So, I'm taking this moment to congratulate everyone on their 12 Days tags and Compenium Challenge entries. I just can't get in to post comments on everyones blogs when I'm at home.

So, between vet calls and crying jags, I was able to get some time in to finish my last Christmas card design (Thanks to Linda and the last challenge) and play with my Rock Candy Stickles. This is week #24, and all the details are over at Studio L3. Now, I have to ask...Is it possible to have used all the glitter, and be left with just the glue stuff in my stickles bottle?? The detail above does show some of the glittery effect, but, boy, it feels shellacked I had to use so much!! LOL!

We can't give away the technique, of course (you need to get your own copy of Tim's book) but I just have to say, getting a collage together was my toughest part. I did delve into his 12 Tags hints to color the ribbon--and have nicely spotted lettuce stained jeans to boot!! (And yes, I was spritzing onto the craft sheet, not my legs...yesh! I have no idea...)
I'll try entering my Christmas Cards later, so come back to see what I came up with for this years selections. In the meantime, I wish everyone a Very Merry Christmas and a very Creative, Happy New Year!

  2. Hi, Kim! Love your collage tag!!! I'm sorry to hear you've had a tough week. Hope this week will be better for you. ~hugs~

  3. Fabulous collage tag! I got a new computer and it has been difficult to get to all the blogs and e-mails. Sorry to know that you are going through some rough times. Thinking of you!

  4. Love your tag Kim, that stamp is fabulous. It works really well with the stickles.
    Hope this is a better week for you, and have a happy Christmas.

  5. Kim, I'm so sorry you had a bad week! It sound like a lot of hard stuff was happening, and I hope with all my heart that things are much, MUCH better by now.

    In spite of it all, you created a gorgeous tag for the Rock Candy challenge, and I love the "play" theme. I think I've had the same experience where I used all the glitter before the glue, too! In any case, your tag has s a lovely sparkle, and is so wonderfully done!

    I wish you and your family a lovely holiday. :)
