Hi peeps! This is my entry for the Basic Grey Challenge 28, which requires some Paper-Piecing and the use of BG papers (of course)!!.
So - here goes!!
I have stamped one of my all-time favourite images - Gracious Lady from Hero Arts, which I have had for years. I have paper pieced her hat and coat with Basic Grey Bittersweet, and decoupaged the bow on her hat. (Her face, and the curved sides of the hat are lightly coloured with Copics).
If you look reeeeeeally closely, you will see I have also added a tiny Bittersweet EK Success Retro Flower in the centre of Sir Tim's Tattered Florals flower, which is mainly made up of Basic Grey Motifica papers (again, which I have had for oooh - years).
The flower has been finished with a central coffee coloured pearl. The back of the flower petals have been stamped with the same Crafty Individuals text which I have used on the Motifica BP.
The Gracious Lady has been layered onto black cardstock, with Antique Linen and Vintage Photo DI applied around the edges.
I coloured the cream lace with Antique Linen, added the Crafty Individuals swirls stamp to the BP, and that's about it really!!! Bet you're glad that's the end of that!!!
PS - I have waited 6 weeks for my TH Tattered Florals die - it arrived 2 days ago, so this is my first attempt at using it! Not the best TH flower, but it was great fun to make!!!!
Have a great week my lovely bloggers -
