WT01: Going Grey, a New Thursday Challenge
 
I thought that seeing we don't have a challenge for Thursdays, I would try and start a new "Ways to Use It Challenge as there are lots of things I would love to use more often than I do.

Since we've been talking about ways to use Going Gray, I thought it might be a good place to start as a lot of people, myself included, never use it. The challenge is to use Going Gray ink or cardstock to make a card. You can use anything else you like. I don't like limits, so the sky is the limit with this one. Use your imagination and have fun. I can't wait to see what gets posted!

Also, please put WT01 in the keyword section so that we can all find it in the gallery. (edited)

Can it be WT01 instead of that long word? Cause I stooopid and I won't remember all those letters!

momtothe4e 03-24-2005 09:06 AM

Not to steal the thread...but can I say MamaKimberly you ALWAYS make me laugh out loud! ( Cause I stoopid.....)

Have a great happy day!

Great idea! Much better, short and sweet.

WT01 it is.

Julia S 03-24-2005 11:42 AM

BTW, If you think of something SU you have in your drawer that is gathering dust and you need ideas for, let me know by private message. Hopefully I can use your idea for a Thursday topic and we can all think of some great new ideas for it.

Also, try to let us know if you plan to participate for this challenge. If no one posts, this thread is going to get lost.

Michelerey 03-24-2005 11:56 AM

I'm going to try the short way of posting the link to my submission for this new challenge. I had fun reading all the ways to use Going Gray in the one thread and got some great ideas. Thanks.

Hope this works! The card was just loaded, so it might be awhile before it is approved.

Michelerey 03-24-2005 11:58 AM

Okay, that obviously didn't work. Don't know why, 'cause I followed the directions on the other thread (have it open in another window so I could refer to them). Guess I'm just "stoopid" too!

Here's the link the way I know how to make it work. Sorry!

I'm going to upload a spinner card that I did at xmas time with going gray...I realize it's not the season, but I really liked the colors.

Check it out at my gallery

(I don't know how to add a link)

Shelli 03-24-2005 12:31 PM

Here's a card I made using mostly going gray.

I mor stoopid cuz...I can't even remember WT01 long enough to type it in the gallery. Every week for these challenges, I can't remember what number we're on, and by the time I get to them, they're usually bumped off the front page. :roll:

I used this week's sketch challenge to make myself use gray. I'll have to use it in a more creative way later.

Here's my 3:

It's OK. I'm the STOOOPIDIST hands down. I couldn't remember either and I started this thread!

It must not be approved yet. Adding a link is very easy. After you have uploaded your card just go it like everybody else does. When only your card in on the screen go up to the URL and right click and go to copy. Then go to the thread and right click and paste before or after you have typed. It is super easy and makes it quicker to see your great cards.

You have a great gallery by the way. :D

Julia S 03-24-2005 01:24 PM

Here is my first attempt at the challenge and the very first time I have ever used Going Gray. I like the silver pearl ex with it. Will have to try more tonight when I get some time.

Wow it uploaded and was approved fast. Here is the link...

poffstamper 03-24-2005 03:37 PM

Thanks!
 
Thanks for the tip smartinez!! And for the compliment. I finally uploaded and I'm very excited about it...it sure boosts the ego, especially when I'm not sure if what I'm creating is any good...I appreciate it!

The going gray cards are looking great! Don't forget to post your link here so that everyone can find them once you upload.

Have a great Easter weekend,
Julia

CrabbyAbbe 03-25-2005 04:45 AM

I'd like to participate, but since I never know what to do with the grey, I have neither the ink, nor the paper.
I'll look at everyones stuff though, and will maybe be inspired to buy them.

It's nice to know we all have someone to be stoopid with :lol:

Shelli 03-25-2005 05:47 AM

Here's another try at it. I used the going gray as my neutral paper to stamp on.

Bebedoc,

Your link is coming back, Photo not found in database. Do you have another link for it?

bebedoc 03-25-2005 06:41 AM

Hmm...it's gone! It was there 30 minutes ago. I do have it in my swaps album. Try here:

Here is the link for mine, once it is approved.

Disneywed 03-25-2005 07:45 AM

Great timing! The card I tortured myself with last night used a bunch of going gray cs.......

Michelerey 03-25-2005 07:59 AM

I really wish this one had scanned better. It really is pretty in person because it looks like stained glass. Unfortunately, nothing I did to the scanner would make it scan in well.

Here is mine:

I had some friends who did not want to order this color because of the name. So that always sticks in my mind when ever I use it. So Going Grey always brings a smile to my face as long as it does not pertain to my hair. :oops:

kmjenkyns 03-25-2005 10:33 AM

here are several of my attempts as soon as they are approved. FIXED

Here's my 1st try at this. I actually liked the colors together!

Your first card doesn't seem to be there anymore.

K_McBurnett 03-26-2005 04:07 AM

Wow! All of the cards using the gray look great! I'm going to have to try to come up with something too! :D

K_McBurnett 03-26-2005 05:22 AM

Okay, I got mine done this morning. Have you all seen the black and white photos that have had color added to them? Like the dress or lips might be colored red? Well, keep that type of image in mind when looking at the card.

Here is another take I did on the Going Gray Ways to Use IT challenge. Yesterday I saw a lot of old weathered barns and tried to recreate the look with the going gray.

Julia S 03-26-2005 06:43 PM

Here is my latest card using Going Gray. This time I used the ink instead of the cardstock.

P.S : Now, I need a challenge to wean myself away from Paint prints!! LOL!

stampinrobin71 03-28-2005 12:54 PM

Here is one that I made a little while ago. But it is all gray and white! It's waiting for approval since I posted the WT01 in the keywords place.......

This is another card I combined a lot of challenges for. I like the gray for a wedding look.

Here is the card I made by combining "Going Gray" and SC14. "Gray" is no longer a neglected color now!!

Here I am poking around in the honored halls where this challenge got started. I feel like I'm in a museum or something! I don't often use Going Gray ink. I usually feel like it looks just like I need to re-ink my black ink pad, but I like the way these turned out.

These were fun to do for the Inspiration Challenge #19. Check it out!
