Working with Gray!
Hi everyone. I am sitting here waiting for our 3rd Nor-Easter to hit, in the last 2 weeks. The skys are gray and gloomy. I saw this challenge over on my friend blog and decided it was quite fitting for this crazy weather. Double D Challenges is hosting "When Skies are Gray". Perfect, right?
Let me explain the gray....Hubby took me to a stamp show this past weekend which ended up being kind of a bust. There were only about a dozen vendors and the lines were out the door. Could not even spend time enjoying what was there. Let's not even talk about the entrance fee for hubby and I. Anyway since I could not get most things on my list, I decided to try some new hybrid inks from IO. The had a show special of buy 4 pads and get 5th free. I was lacking in Gray ink so I bought 4 shades: fog, mist, taupe and shadow. I got bubble gum pink free.
Okay, on to my tag! I started with a Gina Marie fishtail banner, I stamped around the edge with a Stamps by Judith shell stubby. Next there was some Washi added. My stamps are from a gorgeous ocean theme stamp set by Sheena Douglass, and her Sea View Collection. I fussy cut the compass rose and popped it up with foam tape. I added some recollections stars and a dark cord tie on. The ink color used was Shadow.
Thanks for coming by. I just love visitors!
