Basic Grey - Challenge 18 - Digital download

We have a special challenge for you this week :), we would like to see you use one (or all even if you want to) of these fabulous illustrations which have been designed by our own fabulously talented
Kim , (Only people taking part in this challenge are allowed to use these images (for now anyway) and of course when the challenge is over you can continue to use them if you wish but please remember that these images are copyright to Kim and should only be used according to her terms of use), oh and course not forgetting to use at least one item from BasicGrey somewhere on your creation :),


Kim gave us three wonderful sketches to choose from - I chose two, the girl and the word Valentine. I used Sugared papers, cut out the image, which I coloured with pastels, then edged it with hearts cut from the cuttlebug alphabet dies Hippie Chick. I found I hadn't room for the Valentine word on the outside so used it to decorate the inside.


Materials
Papers -Basic Grey - Sugared
Image - curtesy of Kim
Derwent pastels
Cuttlebug & Hippie Chick alphabet dies
Martha Stewart Doily Lace punch
Ribbon, brads & charms from stash

This is sooooo lovely Heather, what a fantastic idea to shape the hearts into a bigger heart. How do you do it?! Always something a bit different! I love the green and pink together and the papers are yummy. It was a gorgeous image to use, wasn't it?
Have a great weekend! xx
