Week 20 Colour Creations Showcase - Gray Granite

 Week 20 - Gray Granite

Hello Everyone and Welcome to week 20 of the Art With Heart Team Australia Colour Creations Showcase. This week our colour is Gray Granite, this colour is part of the Neutrals Collections and I think as grays go this is a lovely shade.

I have chosen the Prized Peony Stamp Set for this weeks project along with the Peony Garden DSP. My other colours for this card are Basic Gray, Whisper White, and Smoky Slate. I decided I would give the Stamping Block Technique a try and I was really pleased with the way it turned out.
I layered Basic Gray onto a Gray Granite card base and then added the DSP layer and another strip of Basic gray. I then layered the 2 gray squares and stamped using my (D) Block with smoky slate I stamped off first and then onto the whisper white card. I then stamped the peony flower 3 times using Gray Granite. I mounted this to the front of the card and added my sentiment at the bottom stamped once again in Gray Granite. I finished off the front of the card with 3 Metallic pearls.


 I kept the inside of the card very simple as the word on the front can be used for many different occasions. So I only layered the Basic Gray and Whisper White before stamping the smallest Peony flower in Gray Granite. Personally I think this card is so Elegant but I'm a bit biased.
All the items used in this project can be found in the 2020-2021 Annual Catalogue, if you would like to purchase any of all of the products used in this project please give me a Call, Email or PM so that I might help you with your purchase.
