Basic Grey #32 (Chris's Sketch)

This week Basic Grey we have a fabulous sketch for you to follow, our fabulous design team member Chris has designed this sketch for us to play with :), have fun, please remember though to use at least one item from BasicGrey somewhere on your creation :) Don't forget to check out the gorgeous creations by the rest of the Design team.


I broke into my new Lime Rickey papers for this week's challenge - and Oh boy are they bright!! This really took me out of my comfort zone - bright colours are not my thing.
I used a SN image sent to me by the fabulous Martine and kept the colouring (with Copics) quite light so that she would stand out from the papers. At least with these papers I got to use my flourescent orange flowers (I thought they were peach when I sent for them - lol) although I did 'calm' them down somewhat with by putting a paler one on top. I used that fluffy stuff (can't think what it's called) on the lamb and a sentiment (well half of it) from Royal Langernickel.
