BasicGrey Challenges - Lost and Found

Good morning and welcome to another BasicGrey Challenges !

This week our challenge is "LOST AND FOUND" - we want to see you use a household item or something you have found around the house, we all have bits and pieces we put by for "just in case". All you need to do is remember to use at least one BasicGrey product on your project !

The DT have made some amazing projects for your inspiration and have listed what BG products they have used together with the household item they have used too so that should help you no end !!

We are being sponsored by Simon Says Stamp who are offering the lucky winner a $25 spending spree in the Simon Says Stamp Store.

I thought I would try an artistic shot this time !!

I was very boring and used some buttons that I had taken off some old clothes and the white corrogated card was some packaging.

The DP's are BasicGrey "Nordic Holiday" and I have machine stitched them all with silver metallic thread.

The image is an MFT "a la mode" stamp called "Candy Cane Kisses" and she has been coloured with Copics and ProMarkers. I added some liquid applique to her hat and boots too.

The sentiment is also from the stamp set and I used the MFT die-namics bracket tab die to stamp it on.

The postcard stamp is by Whimsy Stamps.

The snowflakes are MFT die-namics dies too.

We hope you can join us in our challenge this week, we can't wait to see what you come up with !!

Have a great Saturday !
