Basic Grey DT

Where are the week's going? It's time for another challenge at Basic Grey
This time we have a fantastic sketch by the lovely Martine whose sketches are an absolute dream to follow. Check out the other DT's creations there are some real beauties.

I've used this adorable 'Wrapped Tilda' (she has to be one of my favourites - I just love her) and coloured her with distress inks. I inked around the edge then stamped with a stamp from the Stempelglede grunge collection. The dp are from the luxurious BG Origins range with the exception of the orange one which is SU. The bling swirl is Prima and the rest is from my stash.

Well that's it - work over for now, although my son has decided I can run the office whilst he's out on business. Not until the weather is better, no way Jose!!  The side roads and pavements are a sheet of ice,  the heating had gone off in the office, and his silly computer wouldn't let me publish this post so I locked up and came home. I did have a little explosion in the kitchen whilst he was away that he doesn't know about so hopefully when he's sees the damage I'll be sacked (lol) I won't go into details, I feel such and idiot.
