BasicGrey Challenges # 32...A Fab Sketch by Chris....Miss Thing!!!

So, it is Saturday and you know what that means!? Yup! Time for another BasicGrey challenge!!!! Can you believe we are #32 already! WOW!!! Well, we have an absolutely fabulous sketch for you by our lovely and uber talented Chris! I hope you can play along with us this week! I know you will love this sketch and I know you will be totally inspired to join us when you see the fabulous creations of our BG DT....go have a peek!!! They are all sooo stunning and some gals are lucky enought o have soem new BG papers to play with already!!!!

Well, I wish I actually owned this adorable stamp of Anya but unfortunately I don't!!! She and her friends are on my wish list though! I was lucky enough to have my good blogging, crafting, and BG DT buddy Tara send me some fabulous Anya images and I just had to colour this one up as it so reminds me of our Hannah! I coloured her with my Copics and sponged the moody background with my beloved Metallic Rub-ons!

I bought this adorable cell phone charm that was handcrafted by my friend Kate! She makes so many different ones and they are all so precious. I wish I could have them all...just like stamps, lol!!! I have a gorgeous, yummy apple that dangles from my wallet zipper and I bought a wee monkey holding a banana too! I think I might make a card for him to go on too! I asked her if she could make me some butterflies to add to cards! When I saw this purse I thought of Anya with her handbag and I decided to make the card to co-ordinate with the charm, so I used BG Euphoria. The charm is just hanging from the flower and is easily removed to add to your cell phone, purse, wallet or wherever you want a little bling, really!

The sentiments are Melissa Frances Rub-ons and I used some rhinestone crystal thingys for the centres of the small QK flowers. they were clear and I just coloured them to match with my Copic marker. The darker marker colours work best for this and the crystal won't be as dark as the maker colour would be on paper!

Thanks for stopping by and having a wee looksey!!!! I hope you can play along with us at BasicGrey Challenges!

Hi Tara, well, you already know how much I love your card LOL and I'm so glad you liked the sketch. Such a wonderful harmony of all the elements, your colouring is so beautiful and the way you did the rub on background and the three different papers for the panels is superb. I really love the handbag charm, such a cute idea to have a card that's also a gift and it was great to see the close up picture and all the sparkle. Kate is very talented and I'm not surprised you've asked her to make you some butterflies. I'm so in love with the wonderful paper roses you sent me darlin', I'll have to get myself some of those and the arrangement you have on card is delish! Hugs, Chris xxx

Annika said...

Boo-hoo, I shall have rummage in me drawers to see if I have anything BG left. Your card is fabulous, I have been practicing some serious self-discipline for ages not to buy those miss Anyas...at least before MOST of my current stamps have seen some ink.
I think I might have to splash out on some BG papers though, they are delicious!
And that handbag charm - wow! Your friend is mighty talented!

Jo Nevill said...

Absolutely stunning Tara as always and you have coloured Anya beautifully. As everyone has said, the charm is fantastic, I bet she could sell hundreds through you !!!

Have a great day,

Kim said...

OMG Tara this card is beyond AMAZING hun! WOW WOW WOW WOW WOW!! I am in awe and just want to sit at my computer and stare at it all day! So pretty! And that charm is beyond words too! Your friend Kate is very talented with making them! Does she have a website where I can order some of those fun charms? I adore the purse one...and would love to have that on my purse! :)

And a big thank you for posting my candy on your blog :) Good Luck in the drawing hun!

Love & Hugs~ Kim
