Basic Grey challenge ~ sketch ~

I’ve been having a play with some new stamps and paper today
to make a quick card for a lovely friend quite far away
and thought this gorgeous Mo Manning image was simply perfect.

I was going to let you guess what I’d coloured Rae with..
but I think it looks quite obvious that I’ve used Distress Inks.
I absolutely love the new colours and can’t put them down…

~Rae with journal [+ gorgeous big purple uggs that I would like myself!!]
has been teamed with some papers from the BG Kioshi 6×6 paper pad
Don’t you think it is totally lush??!

Over at the Basic Grey Challenge blog
Martine has provided a lovely sketch for this weeks challenge
so I can enter my card over there..
thanks for sharing πŸ™‚

I also had to use my new-ish flower punches from Nellie Snellen,
these are just gorgeous and great to use.
I was able to get the one I used in both sizes..
there is different NS flower punch where I got the large one for
but the medium one is sold out everywhere!!
If you know where they have these in stock let me know..
I will keep my eye out for them at Ally Pally too this saturday πŸ™‚

Talk about Ally Pally,
am already looking forward to seeing a few familiar faces again
and hopefully a few new ones too,
so if you are going.. drop me a line πŸ™‚


Have a lovely evening,

Marlene x
