Shades of Grey at CASual Fridays

It shades of  grey at CASual Fridays. I like grey. 


I die cut the rectangles with Dienamics dies and sponged the inside twice in the center, the larger rectangle only once to create different shades of grey. I went around the borders with a white pen, to give it more definition. The sentiment is by STAMPlorations - the new MOM subway art builders set. I heat embossed it. Right now you can get all MOM sets in the prerelease sale for 30% off!


Well, that is something to consider, with Mothers Day coming up soon!

The flowers are from the Stamplorations set Eclectic Florals. I colored the inside with chalks and markers and then fuzzy cut them and added little pearls in the center

Other challenges:



Simon Says Wednesday Challenge - Anything goes with pearls
CAS on Sunday - Color me pretty
Pan Pastels - Frame it!
Snippets Playground - use a snippet (flowers made from snippets)

I also love grey at the moment! Who would have thought as I am usually a big fan of bright colors... The colorful flowers on the shades of grey look great! I also want to play in this challenge - isn't it great that we have 3 weeks now? It works for me!
