BasicGrey Challenges - All Heart

Wow, what a rough day we have here today. It's blowing a hooley out there and throwing it down with rain and sooo dark. I guess that means no good photos again today then ?!!

It is a good excuse though to join in with our challenge over at BasicGrey Challenges ! Our challenge this fortnight is all about ♥ HEARTS ♥, we want to see hearts on your projects in whatever form you like whether it be on the papers, ribbon, embellishment, image etc. but please do remember you do have to use one BasicGrey product to qualify for our prize !

The prize is of course a fantastic $25 shopping spree in the Simon Says Stamp Store ! Heidi, Steph and Sarah have just returned from the CHA show armed with new goodies for the store so what a perfect time to win this spree !

Thank you to everyone who has entered the last two BasicGrey Challenges of Spots and Dots and Flower Power and to all those who have entered our DT call. We were blown away with the number of entries to both challenges and especially the number of DT applications we received. Due to the high number of entries and the depleted number of Design Team members we would like to apologise if anyone didn't receive a comment this challenge as we have been struggling to keep up !! The DT call is now closed and we will be emailing the lucky applicants as soon as we can so keep your eyes peeled for an email !!

I have used BasicGrey "Olivia" DP's.

The image is by CC Designs and is called "Rosalie with Roses". This is an image from last year but I still love her ! She has been coloured with ProMarkers and Copics. She has hearts on her dress too !

The heart under the flowers I made from grunge paper. It has picket fence crackle paint on it. Does anyone else find this a pain to use ? Both my pots are so thick and gloopy and you literally have to spread it on like butter !! It dries OK with lovely cracks but then it starts dropping off whatever I have painted ! Why doesn't Tim's do this ????

The flowers are a mixture from my stash and Wild Orchid Crafts.

The sentiment is from a clear set by Kaisercraft I bought from the NEC.

The rest of the DT have made some amazing cards again for you this week. Please take a look and leave them a comment. All the team has been so poorly this past week with coughs, colds, migraines and everything else going around and have struggled to make their cards for this challenge so I would like to thank them all personally for their hard work and committment. I love you all girls ! xxxx

We hope you can join us in our challenge and we look forward to seeing your amazing creations again !

Thank you for your visit and have a great weekend.

  5. Absolutely gorgeous, Jo! I love your grunge paper heart. I used some grunge paper recently myself it is fabulous stuff, isn't it!? I do struggle with my pots of crackle paint drying out and I ended up throwing several out as I couldn't even use them. Just a big clump. They are definitely messy to work with though. You would never know you had some challenges with gluppy paint hun it looks stunning and I love that you trimmed it in lush with all the gorgeous flowers too! Beautiful colouring, as always, soooo adorable!
    I am feeling better today hun thanks for asking and for all you support and understanding.
