Shades of Gray :D

Hi folks,
Today I'm sharing a card for CAS-ual Fridays latest challenge,

http://cas-ualfridays.blogspot.se/


Masked a circle and with the Shatter stencil inked through with black soot distress. Stamped the image and then through another mask added dimensional paste in mat black. When dry I added another stamped centre, popped up on sticky foam and glittered with gel pen. You can just about see the gleam in this pic..
The graphic lines were extended to bring the design further into the card.
 I'm really enjoying crafting again, it's so good to be able to!

Lovely to see you here :D Gay x

I've used
 Tim Holtz Classic 14 by Stampers Anonymous.
Stencils by Crafters workshop, classic circles and Mini Pattern strips
Tim Holtz Shatter stencil
Black Dreamweaver paste
