BasicGrey 8 – Glitz and Bling

Hi everyone, another BasicGrey challenge has rolled round, I don’t know where the weeks are going! This time we have a lovely theme of Glitz and Bling and a great Indian Summer themed prize from our sponsor Simon Says Stamp. There’s wonderful inspiration from my DT friends, so I hope you can join us.

I’ve used my gorgeous sitting Tilda with glitter so she’s perfect for this challenge and I’ve coloured her with distress inks then cut her out. The papers are from BG Eskimo Kisses and I’ve die cut some with oval nestabilities and punched the bottom layer with an EK Success scalloped punch. The sentiment is a die cut and the test is metallic red but it’s not showing up too well. I did a bit of doodling with a white gel pen, and went over Tilda’s hair, dress and socks with a Spica glitter pen for some more glitz, was generous with my favourite stardust stickles then added a bow and some sparkly star gems to the hairband and background to finish. Have a great weekend in the blustery weather if you’re in the UK! TFL.

Preciosa y muy navideña esta combinación, tiene una fuerza el colorido, que no pasaria desapercibida en una exposición, super creativa. Felicidades. Bss.

Hi Chris

The Wise men stamp is a creative expressions one - given to me earlier this year so don't know wether it's still available. Will make up some shaving oil and splash for your OH to try. They do have pure essential oils and veg oils all organic so if there is anything in that line he is allergic to let me know and I'll adjust the formula. If he's ok with it I'll make up a recipe for you.
