BasicGrey Challenge 33

For this weeks challenge we would like you to use this colour combo :)
Black + Grey + 1
Now you may be asking what does the +1 mean, well this means that you can choose the third colour for your creation :), sounds like fun doesn't it :), now don't forget that you must also use at least 1 item from basicgrey somewhere on your creation, so have fun and we can wait to see your wonderful creations and what third colour you have chosen :) Now to make this challenge that much sweeter, we have a fabulous prize to give away to one lucky winner. I just wanted to share this wonderful news with you all, for the entire month of May we have a new fabulous and extremely talented Guest Designer joining us, Her name is June Houck and i am sure you will all make her feel right at home, be sure to stop by June's blog and say hello , and while you are there you will see for yourself just how talented she really is :)"
I hope you can join us this week at BasicGrey Challenges and that you'll pop over to the blog to see all the wonderful inspiration from my DT friends. Those girls are so good and I love their choices of  the third colour!  I've gone for cream for my card. A huge welcome to our guest designer for May, June is a lovely lady who I've met by being on the BasicGrey DT, she's a very sweet person and makes beautiful cards, I'm so pleased that she's agreed to join us this month. 

I've used my 'sleeping dog' digi stamp for this card, I seem to be on a male card theme this week as I need  men's cards for family birthdays this month! There's a minimal amount of water colouring again as the shading is mostly in the sketch style image. Used my lovely new nestabilities dies to cut out the image and the grey mat that I received in my gorgeous blog candy parcel this week from Bev (thank you Bev for all the gorgeous goodies ;) . The papers are BasicGrey Granola which I love to use for men's cards and I've layered them up with grey bazzil card and a black papermania card blank. I added some doodling and piercing, some distressing on the paper edges and black gems, the sentiment is from a Woodware set.

Hope you have a great bank holiday weekend and hopefully some nice weather where you are. See you tomorrow with my Colour Create card. TFL. Chris x

Another perfect card Sweetie. It must be such a thrill to create a card with 'Zack' featured on it. He looks so sweet in that position...not a care in the world.

Thank you for your comment :) I decided to come to visit your blog. And what a beautiful card you've made for this #33 challenge. I love that sleeping dog digi stamp. I checked out some of your other cards and they are amazing. One of my favorites is that burgandy card with the shoe on it :)
