Basic Grey Challenge 27 - Texture

Hello peeps!

Hope you are having a nice weekend! I am suffering from the after effects of a night out to celebrate my birthday and also my hubster getting a new job! We don't get out that often so when we do we tend to go a bit overboard, hee hee!

Anyway, I better get on with this as I think I will need another lie down very shortly!!

This week's Basic Grey Challenge is all about texture, which will give you lots of different options to try. The wonderful cards made by my fellow DT members should also give you loads of inspiration - there are some really yummy ideas!!

Image - Suzanne Woolcott Gorjuss
Sentiment - Studio G
Papers - Basic Grey Mellow and Offbeat
Embossing - Cuttlebug Birds Folder
Die - Sizzix Large Layered Flower, Sizzix Banner
Colouring - ProMarkers
Embellishments - Brads and Grassy Ribbon from my stash
Accents - Distress Inks and Gel Pen

I will be back later when I feel human again to see what everyone has been up to, enjoy your day!
