Not fifty, anyway! The challenge at the new-format CAS-ual Fridays is to use at least two shades of grey, and although you can use other colours as well, I chose not to because I'm also entering this into the Little Tangles challenge, Monochromatic.
At The Card Concept, the challenge is to use a floral theme (clean and simple in my case), and at Seize The Birthday, it's anything goes with no toppings.
I masked an area off and stamped the images in Memento London Fog, then picked up some grey marker colour with a water brush and added shading to the images. As I was painting a border around the area I decided that the right-hand flower should escape out of the border, so I had to mask the left-hand side of the partially-stamped flower and stamp the right-hand side of the flower. I wish I had these afterthoughts beforehand. I stamped the sentiment in Versafine Smokey Grey. Danielle has made it easy to space the words in the Everyday Labels set - you just butt the stamps together and you get the exact spacing you need because it's built in to the sides of the stamps.
I added Stickles around the border but I was too impatient for it to dry before I took my photo. (I actually wish they dried raised, because it would add dimension.) So I took my photo and left everything set up while the Stickles dried. When I went back, the backdrop (12x12 paper) had decided to fall over which knocked the card over onto my camera, so I had a lovely stripe of dried Stickles on the camera, and some smudgy sparkly bits on my card. More haste, less speed!
