Basic Grey meets Just Magnolia & Stamp Something

3 posts in 24hrs.. no wonder I've been getting nothing done in the house ;) ha!

I'm cutting it really fine with this Basic Grey Challenge, which is a wonderful sketch by Martine. Just Magnolia are asking for "Bright and Zingy", what better papers to use than BG Urban Prairie & Lemonade. And on Stamp Something the challenge this week is "Bling It Somethings"

Again this Tilda was bought from Magnolia Sweden, I love that I can get all the past collections from there. I coloured her with both distress inks and copic markers. I used the copics for her skin & hair and the distress inks for her clothes and for distressing the background. 

The flowers, tulle & jewel topped pin are from Tabby Crafts. Seriously, if you haven't been to that site yet, you NEED to!! The supplies are wonderful, the prices awesome and the customer service is second to none! Thanks Tab, I'll be back again soon :)

Flowers, tulle & pin: Tabby Crafts
