Black & Greys

... for the new Gingersnap Creations Colour challenge
with greys ranging from light to stone grey for the background, black soot and jet black for the stamping. I sponged the background on soft watercolour card using the square That Special Touch mask and various inks. It gave a bit of a hazey feel to the background which just worked great with the theme and stamps (stamps: Elzybells, Artistic Outpost, Paperbag). The image is mounted onto black card whereby I made two slits into the black card as 'photo corner'. The black card is dry-embossed with the Creative Expression crackle embossing folder.

Come and join us for this fabulous colour challenge! Pop over to the Gingersnaps blog and see some brilliantly scary and arty pieces from the DT, Petra.
