New BasicGrey Challenge # 3, an inspirational photo....Thank you!!!!
Well, crafty friends can you believe it's Saturday already!? I'm sooooo in need of some R&R and will try to get some over the course of this long weekend (here in Canada) as Monday is Labour Day! I have had a crazy week and a very frustrating week, let me tell ya! My computer went wonky on Monday night!!! I came home from work, turned it on and got the black screen of death that said some major windows file was corrupted or missing....aaakkkk!!!!! It has been quite the ordeal getting it all sorted out but I believe things are back to normal for the most part now! Just a friendly word of advice....go back up your files, my friend! Luckily, I have a great little backup device called a Clickfree and it has been a real life saver!
Well on to happy news....we have another great challenge for you at BasicGrey Challenges so I hope you can join in, at some point...over the next two weeks! Martine has picked this great photo for you to use as inspiration for you creation(s)! You can draw you inspiration from the colours, patterns or any element in the photo! Remember to use at least one BasicGrey product on your creation, and you good to go! Oh and make sure you check out the stunning creations of the BG DT....they are sure to inspire!
I just love the colours and design of this room...very comfy and homey feeling!
So for my card I used white Bazzill Swiss Dots cardstock and made a 6x6 card base. I had to restrain myself from inking all the edges of my paper with Chestnut Roan ink,lol! I wanted to go for the fresh crisp design of this room in the photo.
I used Basicgrey Urban Prairie (the green pattern) and Lemonade (yellow solid) papers! I stamped Tilda on Neenah paper with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and coloured her in with my Copics. I cut her out with my Oval Nesties using the "Out of the box technique"! I cut the Scalloped Nestie in White Bazzill Swiss Dots.
Well, there you have it another BG Challenge! I am really looking forward to seeing what you all come up with!
Thanks for stopping by and for all the awesome comments and awards that I have received...it may take me a bit to get to your blog or to post your award as the computer problems has set me back a bit...but I will do as soon as I can, smile!
Have a great weekend and or long weekend to all my crafty Canadian friends!
