I hardly ever work in neutrals (they're not really me), and find it really difficult, but I love grey and black together and thought this was a nice clean and simple combination with some textural interest and distressed edge.
I used a fern stencil and versamark inked through it before heat embossing with Fran-tage aged silver embossing powder - what a lovely effect it gives. It is the first time I have used it - it's very lumpy and grainy and has this lovely varied finish. It's kind of a lottery how it comes out... very exciting.
