Grey Lady

I received the stamp for this image free with a magazine and decided that I would colour it grey to go with a black and white theme. I coloured it with Spectrum Noir pens. I had actually coloured it a week or so before making the card as I had been off work with a torn calf muscle that I got due to a fall so got a fair bit of colouring images done ready to make into cards.

I have made a habit recently of falling and am still wearing some bruises from my latest fall.

After cutting out my image with Spellbinders Resplendent Rectangles, I then cut out a larger size from the same set in Black.  This was mounted onto Black and White Damask paper from The Paper Studio that I bought from Hobby Lobby in the US.  I then mounted this onto Black Stardream Card, Snow White Centura card and then onto some more Black Stardream card.

I added some black glintz and some flourishes from Spellbinders D-Lite Fantastic Flourish 4 to finish, as well as some black ribbon and a bow. 


  1. This is really beautiful Elaine, very elegant.
    Sorry to hear you have been having falls hope you soon recover.

  2. Very elegant card Elaine. You'd better have more water with it in future if you keep falling. Joking apart hope you get better very soon. I'm still limping from my fall last year. xx
