Hello folks!

This blog has been looking a bit too pretty lately - all butterflies, flowers and swirly bits. So when I saw the code word over at Addicted to CAS was 'grunge' I thought it would be a good chance for me to get away from a floral theme. I absolutely love the sketch over at Retro Sketches too so I used that for some inspiration:

Now I don't do grunge. This is about my limit I'm afraid - a few splashes of ink using PTI's Grunge Me and a kind of grungy background stamp from Kaisercraft. I've also used a Kaisercraft sentiment.  I'm really happy with how it turned out...just enough mess to compliment my clean and simple style.

I'll be back later with the next Colour Q palette...back to a flowery theme again!

Thanks for popping by,

  1. This is so fabulously vibrant and bright, Claire ... love all those bold colours with the grid and splatter background! Thanks so much for playing along with ATCAS! Anita :)

  2. I'm sorry to tell you, but this is still pretty, Claire! You make grunge like I do, soft and gentle and I love everything about yours! Hugs, Darnell

  3. Claire, I love that it's grunge but classy! I also love that you popped the sentiment in such a bright color. The buttons and twine are the perfect finishing touch. So glad you joined us at ATCAS this week


Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a comment - they really make my day!
