Week No. 8 - Inked Grunge

Grungeboard Shapes with Swirls
This week's Compendium of Curiosities Challenge is all about inked Grunge.  And I know some of you may be saying,  "Doesn't Sherry know how to create anything but those daggone necklaces?!"  Well, if you know me (even a little bit), you know that I can be a little obsessive.  So yes, I have created still another necklace for the challenge this week.  LOL


Save those tags!  I used some of the Grungeboard tags that are attached to the packages of Grungeboard as well as a sheet of Grungeboard circle shapes with embossed swirls on them . . .

The grunge necklace is great and a great idea as no scratches on the skin since it's a soft material.

inge said...

Hello Sherry,

keep on showing these necklaces and keep on inspiring us !
i must put this on my "to do " list : simple but nice shapes with the embossing and the colors...
I'm sure you get a lot of attention with these necklaces !

I also love it that you recycled the grungeboardpieces. Never throw anything away .. you showed again it all comes to good use...

With the money you save, you WILL be able to buy the vagabond :)

greetings from Belgium
