Along with many other LiMettes this week I've been thinking about 'Shades of Grey' as that is the current theme over at Less is More. Stampin' Up has just introduced a gorgeous new grey into its Neutrals colour family, called Smoky Slate, and the challenge gave me the perfect opportunity to give it a whirl! Come and see:
I went with a linear design featuring the Daydream jumbo wheel, a gorgeous art nouveau-style pattern, inked up with Smoky Slate ink. There are some grey self adhesive strips in the Tag a Bag accessory kit (on page 158 of the new catalogue) and I found some Basic grey bakers twine and another self-adhesive strip in a retired Simply Sent kit left over from this year's Sale-a-bration promotion.
The strips were taped above the inked section and I used my Simply Scored tool to add a bit of scored texture to the paler top strip. Demands were being made on me at this point (!) so I quickly finished with a fussy-cut sentiment and flower from Oh Hello.

I chuckled as I typed the title of this post as there's certainly no other way I'll be going grey gracefully... After a brief foray into hair tinting I've decided that I'm just going to have to go grey disgracefully and that's that!
See you tomorrow with a really quick card for Three Minute Thursday (and there you were thinking you couldn't get much quicker than today's!)
