Basic Grey Recipe Challenge
Danita challenged me to play in the new Basic Grey challenge today. This time we had to follow a recipe - 2 designer papers, 1 button, 1 ribbon, and 3 brads. Easy enough, right?
So I picked up my Basic Grey Urban Prairie papers and tried to figure out which ones I wanted to play with. Then I had to think of a sketch. Then I had to think, which stamps would look good with this? Finally I decided on the new Spring Trees from Cornish Heritage Farms. It's a fun, cutesy set that I thought would look good with the Urban Prairie papers.
The green flower brads were a bright lime green, so I dulled them down a bit by coloring over them with a Copic marker. The tree image is colored with Copics, and I went over the bee wings with a clear Spica glitter pen for a little shimmer.
This is a fun little challenge. It's nice to have a day to just play! The weather has been cold and windy today, so it was a perfect day to stay inside and stamp. Hope you are all warm and happy today! :-)
