Stickley Bug

While I'm off work resting my knee i decided to use the time to play along and combine 2 of my favourite challenges, 
Compendium of Curiosities 'Distress Stickles' Instructions on Pg 46
and Sunday Stamper 'Jars/Bottles'
I've had this idea in my head for ages but just never had a suitable stamp till now.
I know its probably been done loads of times b4 but i just couldn't resist.
I tried to capture the sparkle of the jar {by artistic stamper} so this is 2 shots, one with, one without the flash, 
 it's amazing the colour difference really {the true colour is more like the top one}. 
I had coated the jar in a mix of glossy and crackle accents, then smeared some faded jean stickles over the top for good measure.

Really making the most of the dymo lately too which provided the sentiment.
Oh and the wire background is also by artistic stamper
Thank you once again Linda for challenging me to use my neglected timmy stash, it's always a pleasure.

Thanks for visiting and don't forget to hop back tomorrow to see my newest ASCT piece.

Minxy, this is fabulous! Truly, I think this is the coolest "get well" card I've ever seen. It's so clever! I love the design, and the blue Distress Stickles are the perfect touch! This would make anyone feel better.

Take care of that knee! ♥

Great idea for the jar, I love that stamp and the background is very effective. I could not be without my Dymo machine, it's so useful isn't it. Have a great evening, Tracy Evans x
