AWH Colour Creations: Basic Gray

Hi!


Welcome back to the second week of the Colour Creations Showcase. We are working through the colours in alphabetical order, which makes this week Basic Gray. Not a colour I use a lot, but I'm always up for a challenge! I had my new Blossoms In Bloom bundle out on my craft desk, so I decided to have a go at making a feminine card using a less traditional feminine colour.

I started by stamping the blooms onto my Whisper White card base, stamping off once first. I also stamped off for the flower centres and a few leaves.

The sentiment label is from Painted Labels, decorated with some flower die cuts from the Many Layered Blooms Dies. After I adhered them to my card, I thought they needed something a little extra. I cut some of the leaves from the big flower die and popped them underneath the flowers. It still needed more, so I added a Basic Rhinestone to the centre of each flower.

I stamped the flowers and leaves again on the inside, also stamped off. As nice as the flowers are in their entirety, sometimes it's nice to just use a portion of the image. I'm not sure that I love this card, but I do like it. Basic Gray was certainly a challenging colour to make a feminine card from, without any other colours to balance it.

Time now to head on over to Catherine's Blog, where you can find the rest of this week's Basic Gray cards. Next week is a favourite of mine, Bermuda Bay.

Bye for now,

Tina

  2. The stamping off to create the softer colour has worked really well to give a truly pretty feminine card, Tina. The addition of the die-cut flowers and sparkly rhinestones also add to the feminine look.

  4. Tina the subtlety and softness of your beautiful card indeed proves that you can create a feminine card from a traditionally masculine colour. Thank you so much for your inspiring project and for joining week 2 of the the AWH Colour Creations Showcase tonight xx

  7. I like it Tina, it's a very today's style of feminine card. The little bit of bling really finishes off the card.

  11. I love the monotone colours of your card, Tina, but it is still so feminine with those lovely flowers!
