Basic Grey is tied up with ribbons and doilies

Our new challenge at Basic Grey this week is

Doilies and Ribbons

I love Stamps Happen  they have such an amazing variety of stamps, sweet, whimsical, quirky, you name it - they have it!!! This delightful image is called  Collecting Seashells, she is coloured with Prisma pencils on kraft cardstock. I've used paper from the Wisteria collection and the ribbon is seam binding. The flowers are Wild Orchid crafts and the butterflies are from my stash, the rear one is coloured with Copics and the front one with white nail polish. I attached a couple of small tags (cut with a Go Create die) and attached with silver chain to which I added some seashells. The pearls are made with a Waco pearl marker.

As always, the wonderful Heidi at  Simon Says Stamp is offering one lucky winner a fab $25 shopping spree in the Simon Says Superstore, just think of the goodies you could treat yourself to with that !!

I frequently get emails asking me how I do or achieve something so I thought I'd leave little hints and tips whenever I can.

Today's tip
Having been asked how I achieve even sized 'home made' pearls .
When using liquid pearls, or pearl markers  squeeze them onto some heavy duty acetate or something similar.
When dry you can lift off the neat and evenly sized ones and attached them to your project with a tiny drop of glue - I use Ranger glossy accents .

Brilliant idea with the tips - thanks for that. Intrigued by the Nail Varnish application & love those shells with the tgs. The dimension you coloured into that dress with the folds is breathtaking. Hope you're having better weather - shall have to succumb to the heating again.
