Christmas in Grays



My latest card with a Thomas Kinkade stamp..... whatcha think? I created this for a sketch challenge, and I have to say, I really like this. I love the gray tones, the layout, the image, the distressing, and the yummy gray taffeta ribbon. I think I'm going to try a few more in different colors, just to see how they look.

This TK image is one of the latest that was released, called Stonehearth Hutch. I stamped it with Stone Gray Stazon ink onto white cs, then cut it apart and mounted it on Basic Gray cs. If you look behind it, I used the Linen background (from SU) on the Going Gray cardstock. I used the distressing tool from the Cutter Kit to rough up the edges of the cs. Very simple, but very elegant.

I hope you are enjoying your weekend!

Love the card! I found your site from the sweet comment you left on my SCS Color Challenge card today (the fruit wreath). So glad I found your site. It's great!

I love the technique you used here. The grays are so hushed! Makes a gentle scene. Striking and subtle at the same time. TFS
