Color My Heart Color Dare

This weeks' challenge at Color My Heart Color Dare ( ) is to use shades of grey.

This color combination can be tricky.  It can be too much of a contrast, or look drab.  It can also look absolutely stunning in its contrast and subtle shading.

It can also, of course, be a mess with white daisy and black involved.    I have a few projects with a lovely placed fingerprint!!!

The paper package from La Vie en Rose is a study in this color combination.  The patterns of black, white and grey are stunning.  (If you haven't seen the paper package click on the link below)

The retired stamp set The Happy Couple is one of my all time favourites.  I embossed the cake, bow, and sentiment, popped up with foam tape, then added pieces from black flourishes sparkles. (which are available in while supplies last)

I ink distressed the white daisy with whisper ink and the other paper pieces with slate.

Here's the link

Until the next challenge, enjoy,
