Art With Heart Colour Creations week 2 - Basic Gray

Hello stampers and welcome to another week of the Colour Creations Showcase with the Art With Heart Team. This week we are featuring Basic Gray. Basic Gray is a wondeful Neutrals colour as it co ordinates with any colour. I've teamed it with Rococo Rose, Purple Posy, Soft Sea Foam and a tiny bit of Old Olive.

The stamp set I have used this week is Bloom and Grow, with it's matching dies called Budding Blooms. The cut the edge of the Whisper White piece I have used the Ornate Border Dies, which are new in the Stampin' Up! 2020-21 Catalogue.

The greeting is from Borders Abound, which is also new. I have added small amounts of Wink of Stella to the centers of the flowers and the small buds to add a bit of sparkle to the card.

The White Polka Dot Tulle has been coloured with a Purple Posy Blends Marker to co ordinate with the card. I love being able to colour our ribbons with Blends Markers, it means it's much easier to find a ribbon to match our projects.

For more Basic Gray inspiration head to Cathy's blog for a full list of today's participants.

Happy stamping,
