BasicGrey Challenge #28

Wow it's Saturday already and time for a fantastic Basic Grey Challenge! so for this weeks challenge we have a fabulous sketch for you to follow, which was designed by our Talented Design Team Member Rica.


I had a lot of fun with this one, dimensional paper piecing is one of my favourite techniques I find that it produces a very effective card and so I just went from there!!!
These BG stamps are gorgeous I have simply stamped them onto one of the plainer decorative papers and cut out with a slight border! These are in place of the two rectangles on the sketch.
I have used white paint to distress the papers in a different way, still not sure of it! I've pretty much stuck to the rest of the sketch! click on the images to get a close look...




Materials:
Paper: BG - boxer, chipboard,
Stamps: Funky Kits -
Foxy, BG - Insignia (boxer)
Die's: Sizzix - Alphabet, Nestabilities - squares,
Ink:Memento - Black, Acrylic Dabber - snow cap,
Other: 3D foam, bling.



Thanks for stopping by, I realise I haven't been very active with my blogging lately, I'm still just catching up... I have a few things I'm working on that I can't reveal yet!
Have a great weekend, HuGs Kim x

Absolutely stunning Kim and your Gorjuss girl is coloured to perfection and I love the paper piecing. I also love how you use the BG stamps. I always look at them and think I would have no idea how to use them. I just need to look at how you do it !

Did you get my email to say that "baby" arrived yesterday afternoon ?! We have been playing and jumping up and down !!!

Have a great weekend.

Hugs,

Hi Kim, another one for me to drool over LOL! Absolutely love everything, the white paint looks wonderful and gives a really dreamy quality to the card. Paper piecing perfection too, these ones are perfect for the Gorjuss girl. Love your colouring and how you used the bg stamps in place of the rectangles, that's a great idea. I bought the WRMK Nonsense pad as I thought they were so yummy after seeing them on your blog. I just made a card with them which I'll be blogging this week and they're so sparkly and such lush colours. Hope you're having a good weekend. Hugs, Chris x
