BasicGrey Challenges - Fabric

Good morning and welcome to another BasicGrey Challenges. This week we have a fantastic challenge for you - fabric. Yes, we would like you to use some fabric somewhere in your creation.

The Design Team have made some amazing cards again for you this week and are the most amazing inspiration.

There is a terrific prize of a $25 shopping spree with Simon Says Stamp for the winner and from what I have seen of the new stock arriving, you won't know where to start spending it !!!

The DP's I have used are BasicGrey Indian Summer which are full of rich, warm colours. Just love 'em !

The image is by Crafty Individuals and I have stamped this onto some linen fabric I had in my stash with some archival ink in chocolate. I frayed the edges of the linen and then inked the edges with vintage photo distress ink.

The little brads are by BasicGrey.

The flourishes are the Tim Holtz/Sizzix dies.

The flower is a Tim Holtz/Sizzix tattered florals flower which I cut from the same linen as the image, I stamped a Hero Arts text stamp onto it and sprayed it with old lace, cranberry and harvest orange glimmer mist.

We look forward to seeing your creations with fabric.

Right, must dash. I'm making the most of hubs being home and giving the house a late Spring clean ! It's quite a sad event really as its forced us to get rid of quite a few baby things like the nappy box, stair gate at the bottom of the stairs and the toy box from our bedroom. The happy news is that the bedroom now looks HUGE and adult again !

Take care, have a great weekend and we hope you can come and join us this week in our challenge.

Love 'n' hugs,
