A Passion For Papertrey Challenge : 50 Shades of Gray!

Gasp – surely we’re not asking for bondage-themed cards over at A Passion For Papertrey??  As fun as that would be, I’m afraid we are talking about the COLOUR gray, not the “Mr Gray”!!  Tee, hee – love the the idea though, lol!!

YES, we want to see shades of gray on your card.  Rainbow and hombre designs are so on trend at the moment so we thought we put a twist on that and make it monochromatic!  Of course I have gone for neither of those styles on my card and have created a floral pattern by pulling out all the little flower images I could find amongst my sets.  I know PTI are in dire need of a new gray in their colour palette (PLEEEASE) but with a bit of creative stamping it is possible to get a variety of shades from your smokey shadow ink (but of course you can use ANY ink you like!!).

{Love You Forever}
Additional supplies : 
Stamps: Botanical Silhouettes, Everyday Classics (anniversary sets)
Other: Adhesive rhinestones, pinking shears

I know it looks it but this is NOT a black and white photo!!  As it happens, Cas-ual Fridays have a “Wallpaper” challenge going on at the moment so I’m entering this card in that too!!

Anyhoo, now that you’re heart rate has slowed back to normal, we’d love you to go create something gray for us.  Check out THE BLOG for all the deets.
Have a “gray”t day y’all!
