Colour Perceptions - Grey

In the ongoing swap with ArtVentures the latest colour is grey, and as always, various shades and layering.

 I started by swiping the base cardstock with Pewter distress paint, then applied Tsukineko Flannel Gray Memento ink over it. The pewter acted as a resist so you can see a bit of sparkle when holding it up.

I used a copic grey marker to colour some computer paper and stamped the Do Crafts stamp in Tsukineko Versafine Smokey Gray, cut around it, and applied to the base. (In hindsight, I think I should have done something different as this piece doesn't really blend in and seems to be hovering above the lady).

I  printed an image in grayscale that I got from Elizabeth's blog, layered it on some cardstock, cut it out and attached below the previous stamped piece.

I coloured some cardstock with a lighter grey copic and stamped the Inkadinkado Ruler stamp with the Versafine Smokey Gray ink, cut it to size and applied it with double-sided foam tape.

To finish off my ATC, I rummaged through my stash of flowers and found some paper ones that I had for years. I had some silver and white ones. I coloured the white ones with the darker grey copic, attached them over the silver one. To complete it I added some tiny grey buttons from my button tin.
