Shades Of Grey!


Hi my lovelies!  I do hope you are all having a wonderful weekend.  It is grey (apt for the title of this post) and miserable here in my part of the UK today - all the better for crafting away in your own little space - which is what I am doing!

Since I have been reorganising I have found a lot of things that I forgot I had and, of course, I have been using them!  This card started with that small square of patterned paper you see here and the scrap of vellum cut at an angle (I was going to enter it in the Snippet Playground, but couldn't find the relevant page, sorry Di.)

I took a textured, grey card base and stamped the same leaf cluster all over, in two shades of grey ink - good job I didn't use fifty eh girls đź‘€ - then I used the same stamp to stamp just one cluster in the darkest grey ink on the snippet of patterned paper, stamped the sentiment, mounted it on to the scrap of vellum and in turn mounted that on to the card base.

I finished the whole thing off with a generous licking of  'Wink Of Stella'  and called it done!  Here it is, such as it is.





Thank you so much for your visit today and especially if you have left a comment.  You make me smile!    If you have a question, please be sure I have a way to contact you so I can answer, as a lot of you are 'no-reply' bloggers, so I am unable to reply via e-mail.

  12. This turned out beautifully, Hazel! The single leaf cluster on the patterned paper looks dimensional with all the WOS sparkle. Simple, but pretty.
