This was a very quick and yet satisfying experience! I made this card in under 10 minutes - I think it took longer for it to dry than it took to make!
Supplies: STAMPS: Hero Arts H3307, CL395, H5312; INKS: Hero Arts/Memories, VersaChalk; OTHER: Ranger Distress Stickles, Stickles, Hero Arts pearl.
Sadly, the picture doesn't show the sparkle of the Stickles on the flower itself, but you can see it in person!
WHAT I DISCOVERED: Spreading Distress Stickles around in the background can give you a very nice, subtle effect - it's like getting an additional layer without adding any bulk. And I always like it when that happens!
i think i can see the distress stickles on the background. beautiful colors!

Lovely card! This color combo is beautiful! But tell me, when you spread Stickles, doesn't your cardstock wave a bit? mine does... Maybe i put too much product on it...

Thanks! I put a little bit of Stickles on at a time - otherwise, my cardstock gets all warped, too. The Ranger Distress Stickles were smeared around int he background. The regular Stickles were just applies in spots at the end of the flowers spikes.
