Fab'n'Funky Challenges #182 - You Can Stick It!

Hi Everyone,

We are back at Fab'n'Funky Challenges with a brand new challenge for you today.  The winners from last time are also on the blog so head on over to find out who was lucky.

The talented and very kind Ciska is our host this week and we have a great challenge to help you use up some stash...

You Can Stick It!

We would like you to use stickers on your project.  They can be peel-offs, glitter stickers, word stickers or any other kind of sticker from your crafty bounty.  Just make sure you tell us what you've used.  

Our sponsor this week is the brilliant Bugaboo Digi Stamps.  They have a stamp for every occasion and some really funny ones too.

The DT were lucky enough to work with fabulous Bugaboo images and I chose to work with the Silhouette Butterfly Flowers image which you can find here.

I started with a 6" square scalloped card blank and used a Cuttlebug embossing folder to create texture in the middle of the card.  I inked this with Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Fired Brick to make it pop.  My image was cut out using Spellbinders Picot Edge Circles.  I simply threaded the ribbon through the holes created by the die and tied in a bow at the top.  This is the first time I've used this technique but really liked the effect.  

My stickers are ancient!  They are glittery butterfly stickers from Anita's.  I think I might have bought them from the DoCrafts website a few years ago but really can't remember.

I really hope you can join us to stick it this week.

Happy crafting,
Rachel x
