BasicGrey Colour Combo 3 _thumb[3]
Hi everyone, hope you’re all well and getting organised for Christmas, I don’t know where the time is going, the weeks are speeding by so fast! A card today for BasicGrey Challenges and a lovely colour combination this time of cream, pink and blue. Fantastic inspiration awaits you from my DT friends so I hope you can join us. This is the last challenge until 9th January as we’re having a little break over Christmas and as always there’s a lovely prize on offer as long as you use a BasicGrey product on your creation.
I’ve gone for a cream card blank, mat layer and the centre of the heart for the cream part of the colour combo and used BG Wisteria paper for the blue with nestie die cuts, ribbon and pearls for the pink. The gorgeous Christmas stamp is from Crafty Individuals and I’ve stamped it and then sponged with Ranger distress inks in Antique Linen, Tattered Rose, Broken China and then added some stickles to the wings. Sentiment stamp is by Woodware and there’s some doodling with a pink sparkle gel pen. Hope you have a lovely weekend. TFL.

What a beautiful card Chris, so elegant and clever as always..... I do love the way you put everything together and your eye for something different and this is a stunning example of that!
Sorry I have been AWOL for so long but I'm still taking things easy just now ;o)

Oh Chris this is stunning! I just adore that image and your colouring with Distress inks is just perfect! I have to say I shy away from this style of image, even though I do love them, because I never know how to colour them. I love the look some get with a ink roller tool but it is a little intimidating but I can totally do the inking thing with Distress inks! Thanks for the inspiration!!! Love the papers you used and the tulle and pearls are just the perfect touch! Great sentiment too! Just love it hun! Well have a great weekend and I hope you get all your preparations done for Christmas!
Big Big Hugs,t
