Basic Grey Week 12 - A Sketch.....

Good morning and welcome to another challenge over at Basic Grey. This week we have one of Martine's scrummy sketches for you and I just know you're going to have great fun with this one! I love to see what my teamies come up with each week and I especially enjoy the sketches because we all interpret them slightly differently. Of course with so many Basic Grey collections available now we often choose differently too! I opted for the Bittersweet papers because they always make me think about Valentine's Day and of course that's fast approaching.

Now then, I have a slight confession to make (quietly clearing my throat)..... a few peeps commented on my colouring for the card I posted on Feb 3rd using one of the gorgeous LOTV images. Okay I'm going to come clean...... this was precoloured and the image I've uploaded today is the same. It is nice to skip the colouring stage once in a while but I still put the work in by adding the glitter, the faux stitching and all the inking. A big thumbs up from me for these images, they really are so scrummy and drawn in a raw way as Janny said in her comment..... love that!

Well I hope you can join us in this latest challenge and you'll be in with the chance to win a fabulous prize as always! I'm flying out now to take my son to cricket nets and then on to a birthday party...... it's all go when you're nine and a half heh?!

Have a fun Saturday and take care ;o)

TTFN and TFL, hugs Tara xx
