BasicGrey Challenge #5 - Sketch & World Cardmaking Day

Good Morning, its time for the next BasicGrey Challenge and this fortnight we have a sketch to inspire you... and if you don't already know, TODAY is also World Cardmaking Day and all over the world cardmakers will be celebrating, are you going to be joining in the fun?



Martine has designed a fabulous sketch for us. I've gone for a Halloween feel but not too spooky. This Gorjuss girl is a dream to colour and I just love the oranges and reds in the BasicGrey Ambrosia collection.

Had to have a skull in there a bit like the one in her hair, I have cut and layered it with grey underneath. The little pumpkin has been created with three little ovals and part of the leaf die trimmed to fit. The sentiment I have curved to fit the shape of the banner and inked the edges.


Not sure how much cardmaking I will get done today might just create some papercrafts with Dillon... who knows.



Supplies: Patterned Paper: BasicGrey: Ambrosia; Stamps: Suagr Nellie - Gorjuss Girls, PTI: Sentiment; Ink: Memento: black; copic markers; Die's: Nestabilities: rectangles original & long; Cuttlebug: vine & flowers; Sizzix: ovals; leaves; Quickutz: Tattoo; EK success: border punch; Other: Adhesive pearls; 3D foam;

Thanks for stopping by, hope you all have a wonderful weekend, I'm hoping to get some commenting time in later too, BiG Happy HuGs Kim :)

I don't know whether to say its Gorjuss or Absolutely Fabulous - perhaps both !

Hiya Kim, hope you're having a lovely Sunday and I wanted to say I'm having withdrawal symptoms from our lovely day out last weekend :D, can't believe that a week has gone by already! Your card is fantastic, and your colouring as always, just amazing! The ambrosia papers are perfect for halloween and I love how you made the pumpkin and the skull and crossbones, perfect embellies for this little lovely. Take care sweetheart, hugs, Chris xx
