Hi everyone and wishing you all a happy weekend. Another BasicGrey challenge starts today, I don’t know where the weeks are going! This time we have a great sketch designed by our lovely Martine and it’s one that I’ll be keeping in my stash with all her others :), thanks Martine! I realise now that I completely lost the plot with the underneath layers :) oops! As always there’s superb inspiration from my DT friends and some gorgeous takes on the sketch (correctly done :) and images used. I hope you can join us and of course there’s also a lovely prize from our sponsor Simon Says StampI’m also entering my card into these challenges: ABC challenge with a theme of ‘new’ using new stash, my focal image is from a Crafty Individuals book ‘nature’s beauty’ which has just come out and is available at the Craft Barn and I got this recently. La La Land Crafts has a heart theme and there are a few of those on my card.
I used the pretty dragonfly image from the image book and I inked around the edges with distress ink, matted on white and placed some gems cut from a prima gem swirl over the top. The card is a gatefold shape, I’ve used BG Marrakech paper, two die cut trellises on either side, die cut border and heart all of which were sponged around the edges with Walnut stain and Milled Lavender distress ink. To finish off I glittered the heart with chunky glitter, added the gem, pearl pin, lemon tulle, leaf ribbon, flowers, Melissa Frances resin corner and the little sentiment tags (Elzybells stamps). I decorated the inside too but forgot to take a photo of that :)!
I forgot to mention earlier that Winter Wonderland Challenge Blog is holding a week long blog hop this week with lots of prizes to be won, it finishes tonight at 6pm so there’s still time to do it. As ever I’m way behind with commenting……… same old story from me, apologies. TFL.
