Blog Bash Give-A-Way #8 - Distress Stickles!!!

I wanted to share a project I made recently using Ranger's new Distress Stickles. Now, I'm sure many of you know how much I love mica ~ well when these Distress Stickles dry the little glitter particles look just like mica!! Mmmmmmmm - I just love it!!! I know I mentioned it before but it also has a way cool feel once it's dry as well...it's chunky and feels like sugar particles :) Just another layer of texture to add to your creation!

Butterflies....

Supplies: Distress Inks; Distress Crackle Paint; Distress Stickles; Grunge Board (flowers, butterflies, dragonfly); Canvas Concepts Natural Canvas

Distress Stickles

Monarch -

I used Black Stickles to draw on the segments of the wings/body. Once it was dry, I filled in each of the sections with Spiced Marmalade Distress Stickles.

Distress Stickles

Flowers -

Here are some of the layered flowers I made using multiple flowers from the Nature Grunge Board shapes... You'll notice that the camera doesn't like all that glitter too much...when it's aimed directly at the glitter it freaks out the auto focus.

NOW...

for the give-a-way....

In honor of turkey day tomorrow...tell me what your favorite part of the meal is....

Mine is the Pumpkin Pie & Cool Whip! Yes, that's a pair ~ you can't have one without the other in my book. And honestly if you ask my family in my case it would be Cool Whip & Pumpkin Pie ;) It always has and probably always will be - LOL!!!

If you're not from the US and don't celebrate Thanksgiving tomorrow then tell me what your favorite holiday meal is...any holiday...

What will you win??? Well Distress Stickles of course!

I'll choose 3 different colors (it's a surprise silly) to send you ~ wish it could be all of them but I haven't won the lottery or anything - LOL!!!

You have until 11-30 to post your favorite Thanksgiving (or other holiday) meal.

Good Luck everyone :)

  2. I'm from Brunei and we celebrate Aidilfitri( in some countries, Eid Mubarak). Every Aidilfitri, I always look forward for my hubby's aunt homecook Lontong (it is a dish consists of rice (it is cooked in a special kind of leaf) and coconut curry gravy mixed vegetable)

  3. mmm..I can't wait for the baked sweet potatoes and glazed carrots. There's just something about actually trying to make veggies unhealthy that hits the spot!

  6. I love the Distress Stickles butterfly~WOW!
    My favorite part of the Thanksgiving meal is the juicey dark meat from the turkey drumstick with a little dressing in the bite... I'm not a "foods can't touch person".
    Not kindred spirits here, Roni~ I love real cream whipped with powdered sugar (with a little pumpkin pie) for my Thanksgiving Day Finale!

  7. Stuffing! (You are what you eat, remember, and I have a LOT of stuffing in me! *grin*)

    I few years ago I started my own tradition of spending Thanksgiving helping out a charity - an animal shelter or soup kitchen. Well, since the tragedy in August, I have worked 112 days straight and am beyond the point of complete exhaustion. My brother is coming up to care for mom this weekend and he is giving me 2 whole days off. So, this year I am picking MYSELF as the charity in need and I am going to SLEEP, eat, do art, read, play with the kitty and SLEEP some more. I can't wait. I won't get turkey tomorrow, but that's OK. Right now I would trade an entire Thanksgiving feast for a NAP! lol

    Have a wonderful Thanksgiving long weekend, everyone. I know we all have so much to be grateful for... including Distress Stickles!!!!!

  12. It has to be the leftovers. Turkey sandwiches with dressing and cranberry sauce, oh my! And I'm not sure you can have pumpkin pie without Cool Whip, can you? It just doesn't seem right.

  13. Your samples are gorgeous. I would love to try out the ranger stickles as I have most of the other colors in the stickles family. Darn it, just when I think that I have it all, they have to come out with new colors/products. Now I'll never catch up! ;)
    However, the one thing I look forward to each year is homemade apple/pumpkin pie and the mini bottles of sparkling apple cider.
    That's it for me ~Timna

  26. The best part of a Thanksgiving meal, at least to me, is preparing it! I love to cook a large meal and I get great satisfaction doing it :) I always, always look forward to pumpkin pie with whipped cream - Yum!

  28. My favorite part is the dessert! Pumpkin pie or apple, it doesn't matter to me as long as it comes with ice cream and whipped cream. Of course, I need a tall glass of milk to wash it all down with. ;)
