AWH Colour Creations - Week 23

Hi everyone!

Welcome to Week 23 of the Colour Creations blog hop.
Tonight the Art with Heart team are sharing projects featuring the lovely neutral shade of Gray Granite.

Gray Granite 6" x 6" DSP from the Neutrals Collection

I had another play with the Buffalo Check stamp for tonight's card, and turned it from check to plaid.
I've seen this done and thought that I would have a try and, I love the look!
I stamped the check in Gray Granite and then using both ends of my Powder Pink Stampin' Write marker, I created the thick and thin lines running through the white squares. This was actually really relaxing and fun and it really changes the look of the check completely.

I stamped the sunflower from the Painted Harvest stamp set in Powder Pink and Berry Burst. I stamped off the Berry Burst first so it left a very subtle shade as it's such a strong colour. We don't have a die for this flower so I fussy-cut it out, we do however have the coordinating punch for the leaf stamp that's in the set. I punched out two leaves from Silver Foil and embossed them using the Subtle TIEF. I stamped the inside of the sunflower with Gray Granite, stamped off, and added several drops of our fine-tip glue and then sprinkled over some dazzling diamonds Stampin' Glitter.
I love the Labeler Alphabet stamp set and stamped the 'For You' letters in Gray Granite and added them to the Powder Pink stitched circle. I've made the circle to look like a tag with the addition of the shimmer ribbon and twine. I also love the sweet Metallic Pearls.

I placed the focal images lower down on the card to show more of the plaid effect. So what do you think of the plaid technique? Why not have a go yourself and see how many different looks and colours you can create.
