Happy Saturday - hope you're happy and hope I am too! This should post whilst I'm sunning myself with my fab M&S friends in Italy!! It's a double card post today for the latest challenges at Basic Grey and CES challenges.
I've used a couple of the new Simply Sassy images released recently and this one is Boho Chic and I thought she was perfect for our Shabby Chic theme for the Basic Grey challenge this time around. I've coloured her with my PMs and Copiscs and then used paper from the Basic Grey Curio pad. I was sort of trying to make the embossed layers behind her look like clouds and the sun- hhmmm - but it looks pretty anyway!
This is the first time that I've used this cut- out word from the Tim Holtz Movers and Shapers range - love them!!
I've coloured the seam binding with my Promarkers to get the colour I wanted and the flowers are from a mixture of places including Crafty Emma's and Wild Orchid.
Hope you can join in with us - there's the usual prize from our wonderful sponsor, Simon Says - a $25 dollar voucher for their store.
Check out the awesome creations from the BG DT girlies - you will not be disappointed!!
Onto my CES card where the challenge for this week is embossing as set by the uber talented Jane at CES.
Another sassy, this time Vintage chic, and again coloured with my PMs and a touch of Copics! I embossed the edge of my nestie die when I cut her out and then left her in the frame while I dusted some distress ink around her - used my fab bristtle brushes for this as I did for the BG card above - using them more and more now.
I then embossed the panel at the top with this with this rose design and again dusted with distress ink! The papers are Webster's Pages and the lace is Webster's Trim - all bought from Emma's fab store! You can also get the flower and pins from there.
Another Tim Holtz Word - and there you have it!
Emma is offering a £10 voucher to spend in her store so hope you can join us.
The truly lovely ladies at CES have made some truly lovely DT cards, so go and show them some love!!
Have a wonderful weekend!
