Spicy Grunge!

Trying to find time to even make anything this week, has been my mission, and I got out the Grungepaper to make a bracelet using charms , and everything else I could lay my hands on, and inspiration struck!
So armed with a guillotine, some broken china and vintage photo distress inks, I cut up the grungepaper into strips.
 I then lightly inked them and wove it all together. I glued them all down at the ends, and then onto another strip of Grungepaper for strength, and to join the two ends together I used a hitch fastener.
To bling it up for Gingersnaps Creations GC22 Spicy Supply Challenge, I added broken china distress stickles, and my favourite Waltz Beadazzles!
I hope it qualifies for the challenge!
I see all sorts of possibilities for the woven grungepaper including flowers!
Watch out for a special post tomorrow
