BasicGrey Challenges#2 = Colour Theme































Hi eveyone, hope you've had a good week and are ready for the weekend. Time for another Basic Grey Challlenge. This time we have a colour challenge for you and some fantastic inspiration from my design team friends, you'll be spoiled for choice! For this card I've used a Sugar Nellie Gorjuss Girl image which is watercoloured with distress inks and I've added lots of stickles glitter glue to her dress. The background layers are cream bazzil card which is embossed with a CB Swiss dots embossing folder and BG Bittersweet paper. All of the layers are sponded around the edges with vintage photo distress ink. The card blank is a papermania scalloped card. I've done some doodling around the edges with a pink glitter gel pen, two pink eyelets and added a pink tulle ribbon to finish. Have a lovely weekend. TFL. Chris x

Another amazing Chris creation! Your Gorjuss girl image is precious, but I really love the muddled background you put around her and the bird. Very cool effect.

I appreciate your many kindnesses you have shown me the past few months. You are a treasured blog friend. I will continue to be inspired by your beautiful cards and I will participate in future BG challenges :)

Hello Chris,
Love your GG and bird, the colouring is brilliant as always. Those neapolitan ice-cream colours look so good together. Really like the touch of tulle too.

Just gorgeous Chris. Fabulous colours and that Gorjuss girl is coloured to perfection - just love her glittery dress and stockings, very 'glam'. Loving your tulle ribbon as well, I have some in various colours and never really knew what to do with it - tried making a flower but it looked pretty pathetic - so thanks for the inspiration.
hugs Heather xx
