Basic Grey Challenge and Good News!

I'll start with my good news, I've been chosen to be on the Copics Colour Challenge Design Team! How cool is that!!!! It's going to be such fun to be on their team because not only do they have fabulous challenges but all the other ladies are just so fabulous! Thank you for having me ladies, I can't wait to get started.


So this week's BG challenge is to use on of three colour combos, I decided to go with green and pink because I just love them together.
Before you say where is the BG? It IS there, subtle I know but it's there! It's the green paper form my Cupcake pad.

Here's what I came up with...
Sorry about the photo again, how precious daylight becomes when you don't get much of it!
I like the idea of just using part of an image, I got the idea from my lovely friend Karen, she does it better than me though!LOL. I kept this card fairly simple because that's just how I liked it! I hope you do too.
You can just about make out the distressing that you get on the BG plain papers. I know it's not much BG but it is there I promise!

big congrats louise, and thanks for taking part in this weeks challenge, can i ask though, which basicgrey progucts/range was used, it may be just me but i cant see any basicgrey goodies that i recognize on your gorgeous card

(sorry if that sounded rude, it wasn't meant to, honestly, its just the rules for the BG Bbog are that you must have used BG products on your creations and also state what product or range from BG was used on your blog post)

Lou, huge congratulations on being chosen for the DT. Your cards are stunning. Love the idea of only using part of an image. I'd never thought of that and might nab that idea in the future :D xoxo

How bizarre, when I did the Copic challenge I printed out just the top half of my girl and was going to use that - you and I are definitely on the same wavelength!

Great card, I entered this challenge too, but with a different colour combination - you could see the Basic Grey in mine though [runs] hee hee

Gorgeous card Lou! That image works so well the way you have used it. It's funny but I had never really thought of only using part of an image, until I accidentally printed Holly in the USA off to big...just couldn't waste her though. LOL.

HUGE CONGRATS from me too!

love Dingle.xx

Congratulations Louly...Great News making the Copics Colours DT. Well done. XX

I like your BG challenge card. Great idea using just part of the image too. I'm sure I've seen that green BG paper before, looks like part of the Romani set to me. :)

I also entered the BG challenge & used Madison...So Chic... & she looks fab. Thanks Louly. XX
