Shades of Grey

Hello there,  I’ve just realised it’s been over a month since I posted anything on my poor neglected blog.  EEK! That’s one New Year’s Resolution out the window Sad smile

The thing is I have been really busy making things I just haven’t found the time to post them – so guess what, my blog is gonna be a bit like a bus stop… nothing for ages then they all come at once Smile

So, for starters… if you can remember waaaaay back to last month I showed you a sneak preview of something, well here it is…

Card-096

Card-097Card-098

Card-099

Card-100



This was a card (and matching envelope) made for the lovely (but ever so slightly mad) Gail’s birthday.  Please check out her blog and send her lots of squishy hugs.

I had a mad notion and decided that I would dig out my sketching pencils and colour the stamp with these and make it shades of grey.  I used Glossy Accents on her eyes to make them sparkle but that was about it. 

I really like the way this one turned out – in fact it’s one of my favourites.

Thanks again for stopping by and I promise I’ll be back soon Smile
