Shades of Grey

This is going to be a really fast post as not much time lol.  Oh how busy lives can get every now and again.

I do so love monochromatic cards and grey is always a challenge but so effective I think.

I coloured the digi in Promarkers Ice Grey 1 through to 5 and of course a bit of black too.  The digi was fussy cut and attached with foam tape.  For the sentiment I used card which I printed the sentiment on and then edged in black lace.  Black, white, black mats were used  with the final while embossed layer finished off with silver line stickers.

  • Black card, black and white papers and line stickers - Craft Creations
  • Digi - Wind Swept by Barb Jensen and available from the Stitchy Bear Digital Outlet
  • Promarkers - Ice Grey 1 through to 5 and black
  • Die - Memory-Box Big Splash Border
  • Embossing folder by Spellbinders
