Hello!! Welcome to Gray Granite week!
Can you believe we are up to week 20 in the Art With Heart Colour Creations Showcase? That is a record for me to have blogged 20 weeks in a row, and sometimes twice a week. I will have to remember to be thankful for Covid19 restrictions for helping me to develop this habit!
Gray Granite is a beautiful warm, earthy grey - kind of the grey of the rocky outcrops in the nearby Strathbogie ranges - which of course is known for its granitic outcrops . . . It's the kind of grey that a beautiful old stone house would be built with, or the grey of a dear old elephant mama's hide, or the grey of a snuggly plush bunny for a new born baby's cot.
It's also an ethereal elegant colour, understated and perfect for setting off Whisper White and Gold Foil, and this week's project does just that.
Don't you love the way the Gold Foil reflects across the table - it's so shiny!!
I have used Gray Granite card for the base, second layer and some of the leaves cut using the Boho Indigo Dies. The first layer, more leaves and the label are in Whisper White card with Gray Granite ink for the greeting. The gold foil panel and loose leaves are all from the Forever Gold Laser-cut Specialty paper on page 152 of the Annual Catalogue.
The lovely birthday greeting is from the Boho Indigo stamp set in the Boho Indigo product medley - one of my most used groups of products since this current annual catalogue came out in June. And the other embellishment on this card is the Gold Hoop which comes in a pack of 10 on page 156 of the annual catalogue. After taking this photo, I changed my mind and pulled some of the foliage bits through the hoop so they overlapped it.
I can't wait for someone to have a special birthday in the next couple of weeks so I can send this to them!
I would love you to visit the other creative Art With Heart team creators and see their gorgeous creations using Gray Granite. To do so, please go to Cathy's blog here where she has all the links!
See you again soon with ink on your fingers!!
