50 Shades of Grey

I had to laugh when I saw this week's challenge at Less is More this week - 50 Shades of Grey - both from the cheeky book angle and also from the thought of having to use 50 shades of any colour on a card!  As it turns out though, we only need use 2 shades, phew!

I decided to go with both the colour and book from which it came as my theme with this somewhat cheeky little number "greytie" from Saturated Canary Digi stamps:

I used a dark grey base card and cut some thin strips of medium and light grey card stock and stuck them at the bottom to add a little striped interest.  I coloured the image with copics and fussy cut her out (drawing in some details to the base card when I snipped them off!) and stuck her over the stripes.  I finished with a sentiment from Mama Elephant stamped in versafine smokey grey to up my grey-count to 8 including the copics on the tie.  The sentiment reminded me of the wonderbra adverts from the 90s - you know - the "Hello Boys" ones that stopped the traffic.  

Right, I think that's enough titillation for a Sunday evening - back to the White Queen.....
