Colour Creations Showcase - Basic Gray

Hi Everyone and welcome to week 2 of the Colour Creations Showcase, this week our colour is Basic Gray. Not an easy colour for me to work with but I was pleased with the outcome all the same.

I decided, I would start with a Basic Gray card base and then added a layer of So Saffron followed by another layer in Basic Gray. I stamped the Dandelion using Versa Mark and then added the White Embossing powder and heat set them I then used the So Saffron Blender pens to all so colour to the the dandelions. I think this lifted them I then added my ribbon and bow and mounted the layers onto dimensionals before attaching to the front of the card.
I then stamped my sentiment using the versa mark and embossing powder, before cutting them out using the die's from the so sentimental bundle I then cut out another and cut it in half and place this behind so that it gives a border.

I then layered my insert onto some So Saffron and stamped some more dandelions. All the items used in this project are in the New 2020-2021 Annual Catalogue, if you would like to purchase any of the projects used in this project please give me a Call, Email or PM so that I can help you with your purchase.

    Love the Dandelions Di, beautiful card

  2. A lovely colour choice in the So Saffron, Diane. It adds a softness to the Basic Gray. And the touch of yellow to your dandelions is really pretty.

  3. I just love your use of Dandelion Wishes - a favourite stamp set for me! Very effective with the Basic Gray and So Saffron colour combination!

  4. A great colour combination Di and I really agree the colouring of your dandelions using the so saffron blends makes them really stand out - they look like they are about to blow away in the wind! Thank you so much for your inspiring project and for joining week 2 of the the AWH Colour Creations Showcase tonight xx

  5. This is beautiful, Di! The So Saffron really softens the Basic Gray, so it looks warm, and not at all harsh. I love how you've added colour to the centres of the dandelions. So pretty.

  6. Stunning card! Love this colour combo more than anything!

  8. So lovely, Di! I love how you've coloured the centres of the dandelions, it's certainly very effective.

  9. Beautiful card Diane, the dandelions look so effective against the Basic Gray and I love the added touch of So Saffron.
