Basic Grey Challenges & PDD


Basic Grey Challenges is back!! This is my entry for the first challenge of the new blog - which is a sketch by Tara G.



I coloured my Manga Girl image with Distress inks and higlighted with Inkssentials Opaque white pen. I put a tiny amount of glossy accents on the buttons of her dress, then I distressed the background paper with Tattered Rose. I used Tattered Rose crackle paint the TH grungeboard swirl. I added some flowers, using a little bit of Frosted Lace stickles to give a bit of shimmer. Then I added some white pearls around the card and in the centre of the flowers. I finished the card off with a WOJ sentiment also distressed with Tattered Rose.

Ingredients: (All linked items are available at a great price over @ Pez-A-Doodle Designs)
Papers: BG Two Scoops

Image: Sugar Nellie Manga Girl

Ribbon: American Crafts

Swirl:
TH Grungeboard Elements Plain
Crackle paint, stickles, distress inks, glossy accents, inkssentials opaque white pen.
