Basic Grey - A Sketch!!

It's time for a new challenge at  Basic Grey and this time we have our new DT member's joining us - and just pop along and see what amazing creations they have come up with.

This challenge we have a sketch for you by 'Yours Truly' I hope you like it but you can complain here if not!!!


I have eventually found a supply of Kraft cardstock at Bunny Zoe's so I felt I could use what little I had left in my stash. I stamped Belle sitting with Teddy onto the Kraft cs using Versafine ink, then coloured her using - well I hesitate to use Prismas as I have a hybrid collection of pencils, some of them being Derwent Coloursoft.
My papers are all Basic Grey from the Hopscotch, Kraft and Manila pads.
The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts, the leaves cut with a Crealies die, I used seam binding for my bow - I love the way this give you a lovely soft 'floppy' bow and my sentiment is of unknown origin.

Here is the sketch I have created for you.



As always, our wonderful sponsor Simon Says Stamp is offering one lucky winner a fab $25 gift voucher for a  shopping spree in the Simon Says Superstore

The colouring of that stool is delightful & her hair is so real with those ringlets. Love your use of pale blue to pick out the colour in the paper & her jeans too. Hope you have a good weekend.
