BasicGrey Challenges 3 - Inspiration Challenge



Hi everyone, hope you're all well and have had a good week. A card today for BasicGrey Challenges where this week we have an inspiration photograph for you. There are gorgeous creations from my DT friends who've come up with some wonderful interpretations of the photo. I hope you can join us again this time and of course there's a fantastic new monthly prize on offer which is very kindly sponsored by Simon Says Stamp, as long as there is a BG product used somewhere on your creation you'll automatically be entered.

For my card I used the colours in the bed quilt as my starting point and made a four and a quarter inch gatefold card. I've used gold Bazzil card for the card blank, aqua for the matting layers and PP from BG Porcelain pad then inked the edges with distress ink. I've used a Tilda from the Autumn kit and also the two pears and the rolling pin accessory stamps which have all been coloured with markers, cut out and layered on the card. I hand wrote a sentiment on the label on the rolling pin, added some stickles and a pretty shot silk ribbon to finish. Hope you have a great weekend. Chris x

Oh my Chris, as usually you've totally done it, this is just gorgeous! The way the card opens, that scrummy ribbon and of course your amazing colouring, all finished off so expertly inside where I can never be bothered, lol! You've even made the folds on Tilda's skirt totally come to life!! It's gorgeous!
Have the best of weekends - I'm just half way through a nice bottle of crisp Chardonnay so mine's going well so far, hee hee - you should see the colour of my cheeks ;o)

This is lovely Chris. Love the pretty backing paper and the stamps are gorgeous. What a fab idea to put the pears inside the card as well. (I'd never have thought of that!) It goes without saying that the colouring is exceptional as always.
