BasicGrey Challenges ~ Week 2... A Colour Combo

Good Morning its time for the next BasicGrey Challenges and this fortnight it's A Colour Combo,
Feel free to use White and Skin colours too and be sure to use at least one item from BasicGrey somewhere on your creation to be in with a chance of winning the monthly prize, and that's it, easy, we cant wait to see your creations have a look at the rest of the teams fantastic projects for inspiration :)

I just love these BasicGrey porcelain papers and stamps and realised the colour combo was already taken care of LOL! I have punched one patterned paper edge then added some faux stitching. I then stamped the bird cage with white embossing powder, I have left it empty as the little birdie is sitting very comfortably amongst the flowers and leaves. The flowers have been die cut in felt and finished with a BG boxer brad. I have hand cut along the lace edge on one of the papers and carried the lace effect on by adding even more!!! And who could resist cutting some of these gorgeous leaves?

Supplies: Patterned Paper: BG: Porcelain; Stamps: BG: Aviary; Ink: Tim Holtz embossing pad; white inkessentials pen; Die's: Sizzix: Flower layers; branches and leaves; bird and branch; Fiskars: apron lace punch ; BG: designer brad; Other: Coloured felt; Lace; EP: white; tracer, 3D foam;
And just a little WOOP WOOP to toot that you can find my last BG challenges card in THE BasicGrey Gallery HERE you will also find some of our other design team members have entered their fantastic makes too.
