challenge 50 - Shades of grey over at CYDA

Good afternoon peeps! 
Today I have 2 cards to share with you! I know I spoil you!! Lol!!
Well I was lucky enough to choose the theme over at Craft your Days away challenge for this fortnight,  now bear in mind I chose the theme quite a few weeks ago! and only yesterday did I realise it is in fact challenge 50! so we have 50 - shades of grey!! Oh plus one other colour!! 
Now I did try to read the much vaunted book and I have to say... Sorry I don't get it! maybe I'm old fashioned, but I would rather my hubby say he loves me, than tell me to kneel by the door with my hands tied, and call him sir!!!
Anyhoo I digress! So this week over at CYDA challenge as I said we have shades of grey and one colour! I chose shades of grey rather that black and white because I wanted to play with mixing the different copic greys together!
I really enjoyed playing with the greys, I have coloured  Bea with warm greys and her clothes with neutral and toner greys! the pinks are R20,21,11 and 00, the sentiment is Magnolia. I am getting more and more into the CAS look, although it can be suprisingly difficult, there is truly nowhere to hide, any smudge or mistake can't be hidden under a convenient flower! Although the odd crystal can be a life saver!! you will see in my next card!!!
So over at Basic grey challenges the challenge this fortnight is things with wings! and don't forget you have to use a basic grey product!  Now you will see just how much I enjoyed my greys!
This time I played with adding different colours! It has to be said they both look better in the "flesh" but I love them both!! notice the abundance of crystals!!! say no more!! Lol!! for this card I used the lovely Scarlets letter papers by of course basic grey! and the sweet fairy is LOTV! there is a lot of glitter on this card, on the dandy lions but unfortunately it doesn't show up!!
So Lots of shades of grey maybe even 50!!

  1. They are both gorgeous, Jacqui! Love the effect of the grey with a pop of colour. I'm with you on the book. I know I shouldn't comment on something I haven't read, but it doesn't appeal to me at all. I'd much rather have a cuddle! Great to have you playing along at Sweet Stampin' this week. Hugs, Tracey x
