New BasicGrey Challenge # 27....Fabric....Loving you!

Good morning crafty friends! I hope all is well and you are enjoying what is left of summer. It's starting to cool off a bit around here and it is definitely cooler in the evenings...starting to get a little crispness in the air and Mother Nature is hinting at fall, me thinks, which is fine with me as it is my favourite season.

Well, It is time for the BasicGrey Challenge and again we have another fun challenge for you! We would like to see some Fabric on your creation! I had a lot of fun with this challenge and the BG DT have made such gorgeous and inspirational creations for you so have a visit to the BasicGrey Challenges blog and then I hope you can join us at some point over the next 2 weeks! Just remember to use at least one BasicGrey item on your creation.

For my card I used BG Origins paper, an Origins canvas tag, an Origins Fabric Brad, and some Wassail brads. I also used some green scalloped velvet trim. I am trying to use some the stamps that I just "had" to have and then never inked up. So, I coloured up this sweet TGF Miss Anya from the Miss Anya Love set. She is darling and I loved colouring her with my Copics. I tried a new technique that I saw on Angie's blog ScrapGirl in her tutorial section and I just love it. I still need to practice with it though. I used a dry shading brush and Pumice Stone Distress ink to create some deep shadows. I didn't do too much as I am still getting the hang of it but I really like how it made the highlighted pleats in her skirt pop!

Here is the inside of the card. The sentiment is one of Kimmie's Everyday Sentiments set.

Thanks so much for stopping by and having a wee peek at my card today! I hope you can join us with your fabric creations!
