Colo{u}r Me Creative & Basic Grey Challenges

Good morning! We have a new challenge over on Colo{u}r me Creative - Winged Things with Butterfly Inspiration. You don't necessarily have to use butterflies, you can use any winged thing. 

We are being sponsored by the very lovely Zoe from Make it Crafty and she has kindly given the DT some fabulous images to work with. I have merged 3 images together to create my scene - Notti, Snap Dragon Garden and Whimsical Mushroom

 I kept my layout very clean and simple so as not to take away from the image. I've coloured the image using copic markers - way too many to list - and created the sky with Tumbled Glass distress ink and a large brush. 

The papers are from one of my My Mind's Eye's new collections, Lost & Found2 "Breeze" and I've machine stitched them down onto dark blue cardstock from The Paper Mill. The fabric strip and flossed button are from my stash. 

And of course no winged image is complete without some Star Dust Stickles applied to make their wings magic ;)

Basic Grey Challenges 
This week on Basic Grey Challenges we have a free for all .. yep, Anything Goes this week.. as long as you use Basic Grey products somewhere on your creation that is ;) 

I got some new Sassys in the mail this week and have been having lots of fun inking them up! This little beauty is called City Girl.

My papers are scraps of Basic Grey 'Granola' that I had left. They are usually one of my GoTo boy papers but I followed the sketch over on The Sugar Bowl and they have an optional colour theme of Blue, and I thought these papers worked well with the blue image. I used a scrap of white card and my MS Cornice punch to do the border work.
