Tombow goes Grey… BASIC GREY! 28


I love this new Cappella paper by Basic Grey. I received this lovely package with papers, stickers and brads from this line. To me it is very vintage. 

Tombow is highlighting their Mono White Gel Pen this month. I used this on both of my cards today. 

For this first card, I stamped with a versamark ink pad on a Basic Grey black paper then pierced around the image and then “connected” the dots with the white gel pen. I love how it looks like chalk on a chalkboard. The brads are from another Basic Grey line. 

The stamp set is a retired one by Stepping Stones. I used the two smallest flowers and a sentiment.

For this next card I went totally vintage! All the papers are from the Cappella line. The ribbon is from my vintage stash and the lace was white. I rubbed peach ink on it and then spritzed it and rubbed the ink into it more evenly. I love how it turned out!

The mini tag is from SU! from long ago that I still had.  I stamped the “for you” with my Karen Foster snap stamps. The pin is from last month’s Maya Road pkg. I wondered what I was going to do with those pins. They match the Cappella paper perfectly!

I used Tombow’s Mono White Gel Pen to make “eyelet” dots along the peach scallop border.

Both cards were put together with Tombow’s Mono Adhesive Dots.
