WOYWW #385 - Greys with an Accent Colour

The theme for this month's SWAP on UKPC is:-

Greys with an Accent Colour of Your Choice.

The 2 cards done so far have turquoise and pink so I went with orange.





I had pondered this for a while and had to force myself (yet again) to sit at my desk and actually DO something.

SAD light on and it seems to have done the trick too.







I used various grey pieces of card for the oak leaves and Spiced Marmalade and Iced Spruce inks.

Thought the corners cut out added a nice feature plus my usual liquid pearls and stickles.

Here's my finished card - phew done it!


Happy WOYWW Everyone.

I don't think I would have thought to pair orange with grays, but it works so well with the fall theme! Beautifully done!

Nice BJ, lovely striking offset on the grey if you ask me. Glad the SAD light helps a bit...I think you're right about forcing yourself too, sometimes I can waste a couple of hoursdoing not very much rather than sit at the desk and do something - anything creative!
