Basic Grey Challenge Guest Designer

I'm super excited to be a designer for Basic Grey challenge blog this month! I love Basic Grey products, especially their paper and I've enjoyed playing along on a few challenges with talented ladies over at Basic Grey Challenges so being a guest designer is an honor. The challenge this week is titled "Your Favourite Challenge"  and the goal is to use favorite stamps, papers, embellishments etc. Here's my card

Handmade card using Basic Grey, Stmapin'Up! and Agapanthus cluster stamp
Fuggy Pudding was my favorite BG paper collection, with Blush being a very close second. All the paper except base cardstock is from Basic Grey including the distressed white piece I stamped the image on. Recently, I've been using a lot of images that I need to color as my focal point and I wanted to do something different here. Turned out to be a little shabby chic, but I like it. Hope you do too.

Supplies  :
  • Stamps: Agapanthus cluster by Stampendous
  • Paper: SU Baja Blue, Basic Grey Figgy Pudding DP
  • Ink: SU Baja Blue, Chocolate chip
  • Accessories: Lace, ribbon, Hodgepodge Hardware, rhinestone brads
