Tilda Holding Lilacs - Basic Grey Challenge #31

This is the challenge this week:-

"This weeks challenge is is a firm favourite for a lot of people (including me), so for this weeks challenge we would like to see some paper piecing in your creations :), please remember though that you must use at least one item from Basic Grey somewhere in your creation, and most of all have fun creating"

So I have paper pieced Tilda, I have stamped her 4 times on 3 different Basic Grey papers and one time on DCWV:-
I then cut out the parts that I wanted from each paper:-

Shoes - Die cuts with a view - Old World stack
Jeans and hair bow - Basic Grey - Infuse - Condense
Top - Basic Grey - Mellow - Birch
Flowers - Basic Grey - Mellow - Slack

I then stamped Tilda on to some Stucco, I glued each piece over the relevant stamped piece. I coloured Tilda's face, arms, hair and wings as usual. I have Tilda mounted on some 3d foam pads to add some depth.

I then used the 3 Basic Grey papers for the background too, along with the brown cardstock I had in my stash.

The bling swirl I have used is done by freehand. I have an Xyron 150. I pulled a blank piece through, took of the clear top and then stuck crystals top side down randomly on the sticky side, I then passed the whole lot through the Xyron 150 again, now I have sticky crystals, and then I just stuck them down on the card in a swirl.
