Basic Grey Challenges 9 - Sketch




Hi everyone, hope your weekend is off to a good start. Time for another BasicGrey Challenge and this week there's a great sketch to follow which I loved by our lovely Tara G, thanks T. I love everything the rest of my DT friends have done with the sketch, there's some wonderful inspiration so I hope you can join us this time. Our sponsor is Simon Says Stamp and so a great prize is on offer.

I've flipped the sketch right round, used a triangular gold pearlescent card base then cut some red bazzil as the next layer, this has been doodled on with a gold metallic pen. The next layer is some raffia ribbon (think that's what it's called?) followed by a layer of BG Eskimo Kisses paper that's been torn around the edges. Next is another layer of the red bazzil that I've embossed with a Swiss Dots embossing folder and swiped with gold ink. For the sentiment I've used a punched snowflake and then I've cut out my distress ink watercoloured Whiff of Joy 'Wee and Reindeer' image and placed on top and glittered with stickles. For the two small circles top and bottom I've used gems. TFL.
