It's a Gray Day
Kim wants us to forget about white, brown or black for a card base and go with gray for the Ways to Use It challenge on SCS. I love grays and don't think to use it many times, so this was a great incentive to dust off the gray CS! This is also for the CCEE tool challenge to use a distressing tool.
The card evolved when I found this lined, light gray with fuchsia swirls DP by Deja Views in my stash. I used the spiral border punch and sponged Basic Gray ink on the lined panel. The Going Gray base panel was embossed using SU's Elegant Bouquet textured impressions folder. I love to paper sculpt these flowers from SU's Delight in Life set. I curled the edges around a pencil, used Copic markers (R85 & V05) to color the centers, then added some Diamond Stickles. I finished it off with some daisy trim and some satin ribbon. The sentiment is a Plain Jane by Verve - Ecclesiastes 3:11...another of Julee's wonderful font combos. How ironic that it's truly a gray day today...no sun in sight!
