Hi everyone, where has the week gone, well where has the fortnight gone for that matter, as we're onto a new challenge today at BasicGrey Challenges and this time we have a love inspiration photograph for you to work from supplied by our lovely Tara W. I love the colours in this which is what I've gone for the colour scheme in the photo, thanks T, I enjoyed it.
The monthly prize draw is taking place and will be announced later today, and from now on our generous sponsor Simon Says Stamp is offering a lovely BG themed prize for every challenge. Here is a photo of the gorgeous prize you could win to be announced at the start of our next challenge on 14th November!
The base colour of my tag is cream so I've left some of that showing to fit with the inspiration photograph. I used aged mahogany distress ink for the red colour and walnut stain for the brown colour. The red was used first, I stamped the pad onto my craft sheet then spritzed with water and I dragged the tag through it and dried off with a heat gun, I did the same with the walnut stain ink. I stamped the solid Christmas tree image from the Kadoodle 'Joi de Noel' set from the Craft Barn several times in the red and then the brown and while one was still damp I added burgundy perfect pearls. I've also added some Ranger Distres crackle paint in Rock Candy and Antique Linen, script and crackle background stamps by Personal Impressions and letters from Impression Obsession. I did some highlighting around the stamped images and the edge of the tag with a gold metallic pen, added some gems, a metal photo corner, a BasicGrey Button and Ambrosia fibres to finish. Happy Halloween! TFL.
