Basic Grey DT - an Inspirational challenge

Before announcing the challenge for this week we have a brilliant announcement to make, our fabulous (and our one and only) sponsor Simon Says Stamp have very generously offered to sponsor us for every challenge, so now you have a bigger chance of winning a fantastic Basic Grey themed prize. The winner for this challenge will be announced shortly after the next challenge is posted on the 14th of November.

And this is the Eskimo Kisses themed prize for the current challenge.



Now - on to the challenge, we have a photo inspirations for you at Basic Grey chosen by the fabulous Tara W

 

I used Sugared papers and tried to replicate the colours and stripes.  Inoticed after I had photographed this poor Tilda is sitting on thin air - I shall have to do something about this - it's annoying  me. I coloured her with Copics and used them to distress the edges - I haven't been brave enough to try this before so I didn't over do it - I think it works OK. I stamped the edges  with Colour Box ink using a Prima build a frame stamp and then distressed them. The leaves are cut with the Sizzix branch and leaf die and the darker pink flowers are from my lovely friend  Gina
(thanks Hun) and the rest and ribbon and pearls are from my stash.
I'm also entering this card into the Magnolia Down Under challenge who require distressing from us this time.




Finally congratulations to my teamie Chris who's been asked to be a DT for Magnolia. I'm so thrilled and happy for you Chris - I'm not suprised with your amazing colouring techniques and a great choice Magnolia.

The first Tilda I ever colored was sitting and I didn't even notice it until I saw the picture I had taken (hee hee) She looks gorgeous anyway!
