Going Grey - April Showers....

Bring May Flowers....


I'm excited to share with you that Kristen from Scrap-Creations invited me to be a Guest Designer for April for her Going Grey Challenges.  I just love Basic Grey papers, so I'm thrilled to join the other Team Members this month.


This weeks theme is April Showers.  I don't have any umbrella stamps in my collection, so I turned to the next best thing, flowers!  The beautiful image is from Fred B. Mullett (item FBM_365).  The image is stamped in Black Archival on White card stock.  I used the Pencil over Ink Technique to add color to my image.  The background paper is from Basic Grey Two Scoops.  I used Bashful Blue card stock and the Beautiful Wings Embosslit for the butterflies, stacking two images onto each other with Glue Dots, then adding a Basic Grey Half Pearl to the center.

Make sure to check out the other Team members creations this week and join us at Going Grey with Scrap-Creations!

Lisa - Welcome!! I love this card. I need to look thru my BG paper for this. I love the blues. Great job on the pencil technique.

Welcome Lisa so glad you're joining us this month. This card is just stunning in blue. So elegant and rich looking! I think the embossed butterfly is a perfect touch. I don't have that BG paper but will be on the lookout for it now, it's so pretty.
