BasicGrey Challenge 31 - Paper Piecing

Hi everyone, another Saturday ( it came round very quickly!) and another Challenge at BasicGrey!

"This weeks challenge is is a firm favourite for allot of people (including me), so for this weeks challenge we would like to see some paper piecing in your creations :), please remember though that you must use at least one item from BasicGrey somewhere in your creation, and most of all have fun creating"
Hope you can join us again this week, loads of great inspiration on the blog from my DT friends and a great prize too.

I've used a gorgeous new Bollywood dancer digital image Surahbi by my friend Sandra at Sandra Dry Digital Designs and she's one of four dancers and an amazing background image in her new Bollywood Set. I think they're all brilliant and a great excuse to break out the bling! I printed the image and coloured her with markers and cut her out. I've used Marrakech paper for the background and also paper pieced Surahbi's little top with it. I added gold stickles for her jewels and attached her with glue gel. The die cut Labels one nestie pieces and Sizzix die cut corner are in gold mirror card. The inner nestie panel is pale blue bazzil which is embossed with the Paisley CB folder and sponged over and around the edges with distress ink. The blue metallic ribbon is threaded through a sparkly blue button which still has it's shank attached so I've put a couple of glue dots under to hold it in place.TFL and see you tomorrow with my Colour Create card. Have a good weekend. Chris x

Wow!!! Couldn't wait 'til morning... Just had to come and see ;o) Totally stunning!!! Just love the blues (I feel a new fav colour coming on) Surahbi looks amazing. All the elements of your card are so harmonious...looks like they were all made for each other. Perfect.
Off to get some shut eye.

Fabulous card Chris, I fell in love with these images when I saw them on Sandra's site and as soon as I've got my next lot of spending money I'm going to get them arn't they great! Love the way you've used the shanked button, I usually cut the shanks off but am gonna try this.
Beautiful creation

Stunning card Chris! I love the Far East feel and how you've paper piced the little top is gorgeous! It's nice to add a little bit of gold and bling every now and then and I think these papers work perfectly alongside that.
