BasicGrey Challenges - 6 - Colour Combo







Hi everyone, hope you're all off with a good start to the weekend. We have a new challenge at BasicGrey challenges today with a lovely colour combination of  green red and blue and if you include a BasicGrey product you can be in with a chance of being entered into the monthly draw. There's some fantastic cards from my DT friends which I hope you can pop over to see and that you'll join us for the challenge. I'm also entering this card into the Just Magnolia challenge which this week is bright and zingy.

I've used the gorgeous Magnolia Dinner Tilda and I've water coloured her with distress inks. The matting layers are red and blue bazzil card and BasicGrey Eskimo Kisses paper, I've done a bit of sponging on the edges and punched a border with an MS punch. The base card is pale green and I've stamped onto that with an Artistic Stamper dot background stamp in Fired Brick distress ink which I've rubbed off in places with a tissue. Added some doodling in red pen, some stickles, red flowers, a white rub on sentiment which I don't think shows up too well and I rounded some of the corners with a corner rounder punch to finish. Have a good weekend. TFL.

So lovely to hear from you and such a delight to see another one of your gorgeous cards. I just love the way you have coloured Tilda and made your own paper, very clever having to wipe the dots off, mine wouldn't have stamped in the first place ! hehehe

Love your flowers too.

Have a great weekend and be good !

Hugs,

Jo xxxx
