Basic Grey # 32 - Heather's Sketch

Good morning all..... hope you are having a relaxing weekend so far!

We're here with a new Basic Grey Challenge today and I just know you'll want to join in when you see the delish sketch provided by my lovely pal and teamie Heather!

It was so much fun to use and, as always, the team have made stunning creations to inspire you!! I know I've said it before but it always amazes me how we seem to all pick different Basic Grey ranges to use too..... but then I guess there are so many collections now that it's not so difficult!

And I know you'll be shocked to see this but I haven't used a Tilda for this card, LOL!!! I was sifting through some of my older stamps and found this little Winter Miss Anya beauty just crying out to be inked! Then I had the idea to add some flower soft to her fluffy bits!! It was a bit fiddly to apply to the small areas I have to say but looks pretty fab don't you think!!!

Do you see the little die cut mittens? CUTE!!! These are a Sizzix Sizzlit die I've had for ages now and I paper pieced them before adding the flower soft. I've also used a MS punch for the deep border, a Sizzix die for the foliage and a scrummy crocheted flower sent to me by my lovely matey Anneka in a RAK. The Basic Grey papers are from the Archaic collection and I'm almost out of them now!! The flower is a Prima Hydrangea and the sentiments are Melissa Frances rub-ons.

So I hope you'll join us this week and don't forget that there is the wonderful $25 prize up for grabs as always from our ever-generous sponsor Simon Says Stamp!

Have a good one!

TTFN and TFL, hugs Tara xxx
