This week our AWH Colour Creations team showcased one of the versatile neutrals: Basic Gray. If you missed the blog hop you can take a look at all the amazing projects here.
If I’m totally honest Basic Gray is not a colour I use that often but I found that once I started playing with it I couldn’t stop. So I thought I’d share with you today a couple more cards I made with Basic Gray.
Both cards feature a tiled background – one background is created with an embossing folder and the other one is with a tile stamp. But both use the lovely Country Home stamp set.
All the colours on both cards are from the Neutrals family, but mainly different shades of grays with just a tiny pop of green .
This tin tile embossing folder is a favourite of mine and it co-ordinates beautifully with this stamp set. I love this little white jug and the flower arrangement which I’ve used my Stampin’ Blends to colour in with Smokey Slate, Gray Granite and Mossy Meadow.
A little bit of shading underneath the jug with my Gray Granite blend really grounds this image and a simple bow of linen thread is the finishing touch.
For my other card I stamped a tile background and layered the other rustic jug onto an oval before fussy cutting the flowers with my paper snips
Once again I shaded underneath the jug – this time with my Smoky Slate blends – and added a bow of crinkle seam binding.
I hope I’ve inspired you to use this versatile neutral. I’ll be back next week with the AWH Colour Creations team to Showcase Bermuda Bay.
