A Blog Named Hero: Shades of Grey

Today is my solo post at A Blog Named Hero. I tried a technique I've seen from time to time - shading in grey.  Of course I couldn't resist adding some pops of colour and shine! Pop over to ABNH for more details and a chance to win a $25 gift voucher to Simon Says Stamp!

Gorgeous! I'm sure that had you kept the color palette to "50 shades of grey", it would also have been pleasant (wink, wink). Adding the pops of color totally changes the mood of the card to a fun & whimsical one! Love the bling :)

Gorgeous ways to use grey!! Love each one of them! I think grey is still such an unexplored color (to me anyways)...you sure make it shine!
