Good morning folks - Saturday again - it doesn't seem like a week since I was at the NEC. I hope you've all had a better week than me - I've spent most of it trying to install programmes on my new PC. It was OK until I tried to install my camera's programmes - almost two full days of tearing my hair out. (It went on my old PC a dream - so what was that all about?)
The consequence of this is I have done virtually no crafting or blogging all week and I would like to apologise for my absence. I still have quite a bit of work to transfer but will do this little by little so hopefully I'm back with you now.
This week at Basic Grey we want to see Glitz and Bling and the prize this week is from the fabulous Simon Says. Check out the other DT's amazing creations.
I stuck with glitz as I'm not brilliant at bling and I used the new Tilda I bought at the NEC last week, (she's the only one of my new goodies I've had time to play with so far). Just look at that hair - it is so gorgeous and I love colouring hair (I'm itching to colour her again and try a different technique on it). She's coloured with Copics and well and truly glttered (see the close up). I distressed around the edges of the image with distress inks and used papers from the Periphery range. I used lace thinking it would replicate the lace on her petticoat but looking at it on screen I'm not sure - criticism and opinions PLEASE!! I cut the leaves with the Sizzix leaf and branch punch and used flower from stash which are both coloured and glittered and the pearls swirls are by Prima.
