Your favourite Basic Grey Colour/Combo

It's time for our new challenge and this time we want you to use your 


As always, our wonderful sponsor Simon Says Stamp is offering one lucky winner a fab $25 shopping spree in the Simon Says Superstore, just think of the goodies you could treat yourself to with that !!

(Please note: This is a voucher code that entitles the winner to a $25 saving off their order in Simon Says Stamp, P+P charges will still apply unless the conditions are met to earn free P+P, please check here if you would like to see these conditions)

What is my favourite colour ??  Anything soft and gentle colours so for this one I have chosen Basic Grey Periphery
I can't stay away from Tilda at the moment - she is Tilda with Hawaii Flower and using Tim Holtz Distress Inks Distress Refills,  I am jumping at the moment from between Copics,  Polychromo pencils and  Distress inks. I do feel certain images suit better with some medium than another.
I've used the Magholia Doohicky Leaf and Swirly Lace as a border, and  Magnolia flowers Cherry Blossoms among others.
The butterfly is of no origin - I've had it forever and love it - I've coloured it with the distress inks and Stardust Stickles and with Tilda's butterflies.
I've added a little tag to tuck in and used lace and a sparkly ribbon to finish.

EDITD - I've managed to work my camera - yipee!! Photographs are still rubbish though!!


Delightful Sketches Anything Goes
Stampavie - Anything with Wings
Magnolia Atoimic  -  Flowers + tag (in the side)

I love seeing you use the different methods of colouring & have to agree that certain images seem to suit a particular way of colouring. Funnily I always think of Tilda with Distress! Love the blues you used for this & that gorgeous ribbon.
