Shades of Gray

Shades of Gray - I bet my title really grapped your eye. My shades of grey is not the hot books that are all the rage right now, but the challenge at Craft Your Days Away. Our challenge is to use shades of grey plus one other color. See, not racey at all. Although I guess it could be a racey color combo. LOL

Would you believe that I didn't use any DP for this card? Boy, I am just shocking everyone with this card and post. It is a stamp set that I bought at the scrapbooking convention.

But wait I have one more shock, hold your heart, this is a Christmas stamp set by Kaisercraft. That's right a Christmas stamp set. I just didn't use the Merry Christmas part of the set.

The large demask stamp, I heat embossed on yellow card stock. I really like this embossing powder. I has little dark glitter flecks in it. The demask image was cut with a SB.

My finishing touch is a ribbon that I hotglued to a button. You can find lots of beautiful ribbon at The Pretty Little Ribbon Shop, who is our sponsor for this challenge.

Now it is your turn to show us your shades of grey plus one at Craft Your Days Away.
