Basic Grey Challenge 19


This is the card that I’ve made for the challenge over at BasicGrey. For the challenge this week, they would like you to follow a recipe. You can add more embellishments etc to your creations but just to make sure to use all of the ingredients in the recipe on your creations. Also not forgetting to use at least one item from BasicGrey. These are the ingredients that you have to include in your creation

2 Patterned papers
1 Button
1 Ribbon and Bow
3 Brads

The image I’ve used for the card is Josh from the Grab-a-doodle-do digital download collection. I’ve coloured him in using my promarker pens and did the highlights with my white inkssentials pen. The papers are a mixture of BasicGrey and Dovecraft. The sentiment is from my pc and the brads and button are from my stash. I didn’t use a ribbon on this card but I used orange mesh from a bag of onions instead (yes Chris the Recycling Queen is back, pmsl)

I also want to thank Rach for telling me about Windows Live Writer. This is a fantastic software for uploading onto your blog and it’s soooo easy.
