Going Grey Challenge - Quilt Card

It's time for another Going Grey Challenge at Scrap-Creations, this week Stamp N Plus Scrap N is the sponsor, so be sure to play along for your chance to win a great prize!  Stamp N Plus Scrap N also has a Blog Hop going on right now, be sure to stop for more inspiration.

This weeks Going Grey Challenge is to use any Basic Grey paper along with Three Embellishments.  I tend to keep my cards pretty embellishment free, so of course finding the right embellishments to go with my card became a challenge.  I used Basic Grey Lime Rickey for my backgound, creating little Quilt Blocks, and stiching them together with Starving Artistamps Stitches and Labels set.  I really need to use this set more often for my stitches, it sure beats dragging out the sewing machine!

The image is from Paper Bag Studios, stamped in Black Archival on White card stock, then colored using Distress Inks and a Fantastix Blending Tool.  The Fantastix Tool works wonderfully for coloring with Distress Inks.  After coloring, I blending Old Paper Distress Ink over my panel, then added the Stitching in Black.  I used the Bow Easy to tie the Olive Grosgrain, and glued on a Black button I had tied with Linen Thread.

Thanks for stopping by, be sure to check out the other Team members creations this week and join us for this weeks challenge at Going Grey with Scrap-Creations
