Basic Grey Challenge Sketch #1

Hey Peeps,

The Basic Grey Challenge is back!! This is a sketch by Tara G and my interpretation of it:



The papers are by Basic Grey - just look at those lush colours...am so loving oranges this summer! The little girly is a Whiff of Joy stamp and I coloured her with ProMarkers and then cut out using a Nestie.




I used some antique lace instead of ribbon cos the only ribbon I had is bright orange and it looked well rough LOL and I know the sentiment is the wrong way round but I just got this stamp last week and couldn't wait to use it!




The flowers are made up of a couple of paper ones and then one I punched from the paper set, adding a few leafy things behind and a paper rose to the centre. I used a little flower headed pin threaded with some ancient beads to pop behind the flower embellishment and used a Martha Stewart border punch for the strip down the card...and stuck it down the wrong way round so it isn't really visible....dur!




Thanks for looking and hope you have a great day!
