BasicGrey Challenge 5 - Sketch





Hi everyone, hope you had a good Saturday and here I am a bit late I'm afraid with my card for BasicGrey Challenges. This week we have a great sketch for you to follow which has been designed by our lovely Martine and which you can rotate or flip however you like as long as the sketch can still be seen. I hope you can join us, there's loads of amazing inspiration from all my DT friends and of course there's the fantastic prize draw as long you use a BasicGrey product on your creation. We would also like to welcome Ruth as our guest designer for the month of October it's great to have you on the team Ruth and I hope you enjoy it.

I've coloured a sweet little Ketto stamp for this card (thank you Kim x) which I've coloured with copics and added some Stardust Stickles for a bit of sparkle. The base card and the piece embossed and sanded with a CB music folder are Coredinations Card. The other layers are BG Sugared and I've used a small piece of this to make the little curled sentiment strip and used a Doodlebug rub on for the sentiment. To finish off there's some thin ribbon and pink gems and BG buttons. Hope you enjoy the rest of the weekend. TFL.

Chris this is beautiful. I wanted to enter as I have lots of BG papers but we've had so many visitors recently from the UK. It's great to see them but it's difficult to find time to make up all the lovely sketches!

Hi Chris! I just love Kettos, they are one of my personal fav's, just SO cute~ and you have colored her to perfection. I love the whimsical feel of this whole card. Your textures with the embossed panel and the distressing make it really stand out. But I just LOVE how you do the little background swirlies too! Let's just say I am in awe of your talent! :-) xx

Hi Chris,
Really like the shade of green card you've used and the backing papers are lovely too. The embossed musical notes are just perfect for a 'dancing queen'. (or princess)
