Garden Silhouettes In Basic Grey....

I went out on a limb and tried something new. I love the Basic Grey paper! I used it once before, but I haven't really gotten the stamping groove like I do with other colors.I didn't have the oval punches, but I do have the Creative Memories cutting system. I turned out good without the punches. I tried to do a "mosaic" look and it turned out really cute. I didn't want to put too much color so I only colored in the flowers and their stems so that you could see them through the bland "weeds". I did one of those really neat looking side photos that everybody else was taking. It actually looks really nice. It gives more detail as to what I did on your card that I may not have seen before.

Ingredients: Stamps-Garden Silhouettes and Warm Words Paper-Basic Black, Basic Grey, Going Grey, Shimmery White Inks-Basic Grey, Going Grey and Jet Black StazOn Accessories-Creative Memories Oval Cutting System, Basic Grey Taffeta Ribbon, Pirsmacolor Pencils, Blending Stumps and Gamsol

Hope everything is going well with you all this weekend and happy stamping!
