Basic Grey DT

At Basic Grey we have a colour combination for you this week.

For this weeks challenge we would like you to use this colour combo for your creations, feel free to use any other bits of colour too for example, hair colours, grass, sky, skin, white card, small bits of colour in paper patterns etc etc, just as long as the main 3 colours are the most noticeable then you are good to go


I chose this little Manga girl from Funky Kits as I really thing they suit wacky colouring. I coloured her in Copics and used Basic Grey's Lemonade papers. The sketch is from Everybody Art Challenge , lots of lovely layering, and I used a SU metal frame and brads - the requirements for Cute Card Thursday this week. I cut the border with an MS punch, the leaves from Sizzix leaf and branch die set and the stamens are from a Woodware punch.  The silk flower is the last one of my stash and the sentiment is Stamps Away.

Now I'm off to get some Copic paper before I run out altogether, just wish it wasn't nearly two hours drive away, or that the shop sold lots of other lovely crafting stash. Hope you all have a brilliant weekend.

Happy crafting

This is so pretty Heather! I wasn't a huge fan of that pink and yellow combination when I first got the BG Lemonade pack, but it has grown on me big time. The embossing on the punched piece is incredibly effective - I would never have thought of that!

I just use plain old office card for my Copic colouring, and it serves as card blanks too. I bought a ream from our office stationer's. Can you get hold of that easier? (Of course, that may be why your colouring always looks so much better than mine does! LOL)
