50 Shades of Grey...well almost!

The first challenge of each month at "Less is More" is always a colour challenge.
This time we have chosen the topical title
50 Shades of Grey.
I haven't actually read any of the books although my daughter tells me that she did!!!!
My cards aren't exactly 50 shades but I rummaged through my paper and card scraps and came up with quite a few small pieces which could be die-cut.
Memory Box turtles and I think it's Docraft paper, which has been sculling around for aeons! The sentiment is computer generated and it's all on a charcoal base.
More die-cutting here.
The buildings are from a SavvyStamps die and the cars are Memory Box. The warm grey of the sky has been embossed with a Stampin' Up folder. The sentiment is from an SU set.
Once more the only thing which has been stamped is the sentiment. I can't decipher the origin of this clear set. The ginkgo leaf is a recent acquisition and I love it. It's from Impression Obsession!
 Again various shades of grey amalgamated!
I think you should have fun with this one... lots of stamping techniques seem to cry out for it, but as I had just bought a whole bunch of new dies, I wanted to play with them!

  1. Hello Chrissie
    Gorgeous cards, it's hard to choose a favourite. The stamps you didn't know the make of are Stampendous, I think.

  5. Stunning set of cards Chrissie , your turtle card is so cute and the sentiment very apt. That skyline card is a great idea and I love the ginkgo leaves. Off out into the sun shine now, card making will have to wait until later .

    I haven't read the books either, but it was fun working with grey, a color I don't often use!

  22. Your cards are always amazing Chrissie! The cars birthday card is my favourite with all that texture and a wonderful 'atmosphere'. I always feel I should read books that everyone's talking about but haven't got round to this rather salacious-sounding novel and people have stopped talking about it now anyway! Vicky x
