Shades of Grey

Hi folks, Phew it's a bit of a hottie today :D Hope you enjoy it as much as I do!
Today I have a card for LIM where the challenge set by Chrissie and Jen is for Shades of Grey! Right up my alley I have to admit and I did have fun making this one,





The light is going this evening but it's been a fabulous day. What with Murray winning at Wimbledon (YIPPEEE!) and hot sunny weather, we've never had it so good :D

My card was stamped with Woodware, Clear magic Singles Tiny Dots, I used acrylic  black and white paint and mixed the shades I wanted. Some Tim Holtz Remnant Rubs and a little silver gilding flakes on a piece of double sided tape to finish.


I hope you like it and thank you for stopping by.
I shall be away for just a little while, exploring this beautiful country we live in, looks like we might have lovely weather for a change too, can't wait :D x

Wow, stunning as always Gay! Very, very classy indeed.

Hope you have a fabulous holiday and that the weather stays nice for you although I have to admit I really don't like this heat. I'm sure that at the moment I am in the minority, lol!

Your card is beautiful Gay. I love the collage effect and the depth you've achieved with your shades of grey. It certainly has been an amazing weekend with the tennis and the sunshine - and we were celebrating my husband's 50th too! We'll come back down to earth in a minute! Vicky x

Fantastic card Gay and I love the abstract look of it, bet it looks stunning IRL with the sheen from the metallic strip. Too hot for me but so good to have almost a week of sun! Chris xx
