Cards in Envy... Going Gray

Hello! It has been a wicked week with our New England weather..snow, snow, snow, wind and cold!
The weather is gray and so is the challenge at  We are inspired to use mostly gray on our cards.  I really like this hippo by Avery Elle....he has some fun accessories- like his glasses. I coated the glasses with Sakura black Glaze pen. I used a stencil and Hero Arts shadow ink to create the background with the squares. I paper pieced his blue face then toned down the blue with more of the ink.

Thanks for stopping by!  I am very excited about the SuperBowl tomorrow night--go Patriots!!!
