Color Dare #176 Greys with Black and White

It's Friday so that means NEW Color My Heart color dare!
This week the challenge is to use the colors of Greys with Black and White. We have 2 beautiful greys in our Close To My Heart pallete: Slate and Whisper. 

Here I've paired up the colors with paper from the La Vie En Rose paper pack. I LOVE all those black and white patterns! I also got out my January Stamp of the Month: Beloved Bouquet stamp set for this project. I thought the outline flower images would be a perfect fit for this color dare.

To get the images on both layers I put the cardstock pieces on top of each other and then stamped the images. Because of the cardstock thickness there is a bit of a gap in the stamped image. That is easily hidden with the black cardstock layer!

Because Beloved Bouquet is the January Stamp of the Month it's only available for a limited time: Jan. 1-31, 2016.

All products are Close To My Heart: (click for image)

Now it's your turn! Get your fingers inky and join the fun! If you don't have the grey inks just use the black and do 1st, 2nd and 3rd generation images! This color dare is open until Thursday at 9:00pm CST. Details on how to join are in the sidebar on our Color My Heart Blog. While you're there, check out the great ideas the Design Team is sharing! We love comments, too, so if you'd be so kind as to take a minute to leave us a comment we'd appreciate it!

Tell your friends and let's have some fun!
