Basic Grey DT - A sketch

We have a fabulous sketch by the lovely Martine at Basic Grey this week, which she has left bare so that you have a choice in where to put your embellishments.


The prize, from our one and only sponsor the fabulous Simons Says  is a $25 voucher to spend in the store.



I couldn't make my mind up which image to use for this one,  first I tried this, then that, stamped a few - no - nothing floated my boat so I dispensed of an image altogether and chose a quote as my main focal point. Right, which quote should I use, gosh there are so many. The one I really like was too long so I opted for this simple little one. I used Basic Grey's Obscure papers, a pad I've had for ages and never touched before. The quote is printed on a patterned vellum as are the flowers which are cut with Woodware Cherry blossom punches.  The butterfly is a Marianne creatables cutting stencil, cut twice with the top layer again in vellum, the leaves are coloured by inking through a skeleton leaf and cut by hand. There is a liberal use of stickles, which you can actually see for a change. 

Hope you all have a fabulous Bank Holiday weekend.
