Basic Grey #28 & Secret Crafters #100


Hi girls, it's great to have you visiting my blog. I appreciate you taking the time. Yesterday was not particularly good again and I spent most of the day resting my back but got up after tea to make this card for the Basic Grey challenge where the requirement was Paper Piecing. I used the sketch from Secret Crafters and am entering it into both challenges.
I inked up Magnolia's "Tilda with Thistle" and also the miniature version of the same stamp. The tartan dresses and bows in their hair are paper pieced and the images are coloured using Copics. The design Papers are both from Basic Grey's "Wisteria" pad. The ribbon and pearls are from my stash and the flowers are modified Prima flowers.
I hope you like this card and that you will be able to find the extra time to leave a comment for me letting me know what you think of it. Your views and opinions are valued and helpful. Please don't go without letting me know you have been here.
Thank you for visiting and have a great day. Stay safe and healthy.
Love and Hugs,
