Black and Gray

Hi there! 
It's been awhile since I've posted anything, I've been so busy creating projects for classes that I'm teaching this month.  I've missed playing along with some great challenges.  However, when I saw the black and grey challenge (GC124) over at Gingersnaps Creations, I couldn't get it out of my was a challenge I had to take.  It's colorless!  Just blacks and grays.  I've done color challenges before that truly challenged me, but they were color combos and often easily workable and forgiving.  I suspected I had a dark side, but I didn't know how hard it was to get it to the surface.  I'm glad you can't see my "rejected" bin!  Blah!  

I needed a male birthday card this month so I went with the black and gray!  (darn challenge kept nagging at me)

The bg is crated using alcohol inks on black glossy cs.  I then put it through my Vagabond using a Sizzix "brickwall" ef .  I mounted it on black cs and distressed the edges with water and let it dry.  My stamp is from Gina K Designs entitled "Life is Good" by Theresa Momber.  I colored the train with Copic Markers W1, W3 and W5 and used a combination of DI "Black Soot" and Memento "London Fog" on the background Spellbinder labels 18 were used for the frame.  It kind of reminded me of a cold gray November day.

Thanks for the challenge, GS....I'm glad I did it and now it can stop nagging at me!  ;0)
