A little bit of grunge

I do like a little bit of grunge every now and then, don't you?

This features some ice-resin paper I made at a recent craft retreat, and an experiment with Distress Inks, Crackle Glaze and Distress Stickles. If you embed the gems into the glaze before it sets, they stick. Didn't know that. I will say though, that after being passed around the crop a gem did fall off, but nothing that a blob of Glossy Accents (thanks Sue!) couldn't fix. I tried inking the tulle with Distress Inks too, but that didn't work as well. It looks quite nice though.

This is for Sketch Saturday and Basic Grey Challenges (I used Marjolaine paper).
