Ginger - I Don't Think So, More Dark Brown !!


I know a bit of a weird title - but you'll understand when i explain i have used the PB stamp 'Ginger' !!!

Oh the dilema i was in with this card - how to combine 2 of my favourite things PB and Basic Greys and their challenges (especially when i'm so used to picking up a BG pad and picking 2 / 3 papers out of it, where this time, i've had to use 3 different pads and it felt so weird !!), but i finally have and i'm really pleased with how it's turned out.

So here's the Card and Challenges :

Basic Grey Challenges  - where Challenge No: 28 is 'Paper Piecing' (which i love doing) the paper piecing is her dress

Penny Black Saturday Friends - where Challenge No: 117 is 'Purple, Cream and Brown'

Sketch and Stash - where they up to Sketch No: 43 and what a fabby sketch it is too and just what i was looking for, thanks

I would normally just stamp the image in Black, but as the challenge required brown - i thought i would do stamp some of the image in black and the shoes and lace at the bottom of her dress in brown

Image - Penny Black - 'Ginger'
Papers - Basic Grey - Brown Paper - 'Nook & Pantry'
Deep Purple Paper, on the dress and the strip - 'Euphoria'
Lighter Purple as frame around image - 'Kioshi'
Punch - Martha Stewart - 'Daisy Chain' - one i don't use very often as it doesn't go through card !!
Sentiment - Woodware - 'Circular Greetings'
I also spritzed the image with some fabby glitzy (but i don't think it's showing up very well on the photo) stuff from Stampin Up, but i can't remember what it's called

I have a fabby stamp on offer at the moment - if you haven't already entered here's my Mini Candy

Thanks for looking, Luv Sam x
