Basic Grey - Follow the sketch

Challenge 20 - Follow the Sketch
This week we have another sketch for you to follow, you can resize and even flip the sketch but please make sure that the original sketch can be recognized easily in your creations, feel free to also add any other embellishments etc to your creations and of course not forgetting to use at least one item from BasicGrey

Such a cute image and I have quite a few men's cards I need to make and thought this was just perfect for one... to remember being a little boy with his bucket full of water! I have coloured him with copics but the versafine ink has smudged a little may need to invest in better ink pad but it's the texture on the paper as it doesn't smudge on my other!

I didn't mean for the pieces to be quite so angled and they stuck fast before I could adjust them. I used grosgrain ribbon for one layer fixing with eyelets to the paper!

Paper: Basic Grey - Granola, Heavy weight cartridge,
Stamps: Sugar Nellie - Simon in shorts,
Die's: Nestabilities - long rectangle,
Ink: Versafine black, colourbox - dark moss, copic markers, distress inks,
Other: BasicGrey - Boxer buttons, natural string, Grosgrain ribbon's, Eyelets and Big Bite, edge distresser, 3D foam,

Thanks for stopping by and you wonderful comments I will hope fully get time later to pop around all your blogs, Have a great Saturday, HuGs Kim x

Hi ya Kim !

This is a gorgeous card for a little boy and I love the image, he is so cute ! I bought a little dewdrop of Memento ink and its fabby with ProMarkers so should be the same for Copics. I bought them from e-bay. Give me a shout if you want me to point you in the right direction !

I am also very pleased to hear that things stick fast for you too when they are too wonky - I have this problem ALL the time !!!

Hope you have a great weekend,
