Make it Monday #214 - Stamping with Neutrals

Hello friends.  This weeks Make it Monday challenge is all about putting the spotlight on neutrals, and Dawn McVey does a great video on different ways to achieve this.  I chose to use a soft gray and the Cover Plate: Quatrefoil Die for my background.  Take a look:



I used the die to create a stencil and then lightly sponged with Smoky Slate ink, and I love the way it turned out!  I stamped and fussy cut the flowers from Delightful Dahlia Additions, using Scarlet Jewel, Autumn Rose, & Sweet Blush inks and my MISTI to line up the flowers.  The sentiment is from Think Big Favorites: #22.  A few rainstones finished off my card.

If you'd like to play along, or even just check out some beautiful cards, you can see it all right here.

Thanks so much for stopping by today...I love it when you do! :0)
