Gingersnaps Black and Gray Plus Poe.

GC #124 Color Challenge is Black and Gray.
It’s a “Cool Gray Day”’ here so it’s perfect for this challenge.
I’m sorry ladies I didn’t have a lot of “Gray’s” in my stash of cardstock.
So I ended up bleaching and dieing cardstock to get my grays.
Edger was printed on “Bleached” CS then cut out, and the Printed BG paper was embossed and painted over then washed to get the gray color.
I used an iron to remove the embossing then stamped the Raven and embossed the image. Needless to say this was a big challenge for me.
I hope I haven’t spooked you from trying this challenge. Please stop in and take a look at all the great art work posted for this challenge.
Thanks so much for your visit today, have a wonderful week- end.
