Default What do you do with Going Gray??

I know we all have certain colors we use more of and less of, but I'm getting quite a stack of Going Gray. I make an effort to use my other colors I don't get to much, but this one just doesn't inspire me.

Does anyone have ways that they LOVE to use Going Gray?

Well, I just got the Stampin' Around Ink Cartridge of Going Gray, I figured it would give a light cute background with a wheel and I got the wheel that matches the IFB set. My upline says she used her going gray alot, so I decided why not get it and give it a try, course I just got it in the mail today so haven't got to do anything with it yet.

Gray and shades of Purple (Eggplant Envy, Perfect Plum) -- a fantastic color combo. Try it... especially if you want a dramatic look...

I saw a tip awhile back, to use Going Grey to stamp with, then color in with light chalks (pastels) with a q-tip or applicator.

It makes it look very "artsy."

What do I do with Going Gray......

ABSOLUTELY NOTHING!!! My ink sits in my ink storage unit, and the paper sits in its rack. My gray pastel is also untouched.

Going gray ink is perfect for an outline for stamps instead of black especially for those "softer" images like the
'A New litte Someone' or the 'Gift of Spring' set. I use it often for subtle watercoloring outlines.

As far as the paper, I haven't used alot of it, but someone told me about using heat and stick with dazzling diamond glitter on gray to get a very pretty silver background paper. I haven't tried it yet.

Okay, found this in my stamping files, from some kind soul a long time ago:

GRAY GUIDING:

1. Take any bold/solid stamp image & stamp onto cardstock using the Going Grey ink pad.

2. Color in & around the image in a light chalk color (ex: light pink for flowers & lime green for leaves, etc.) with a Q-tip or cotton ball.

3. Now go over gray lines again in a darker chalk color (ex: purple for flowers, evergreen for leaves, etc.).

4. Spray with sealer or even with hairspray to set the chalk.
(Next steps are optional)

5. Follow along the gray lines again, but with the glue pen this time.

6. Sprinkle with glitter over the glue & shake excess off. You may have to do steps 5 & 6 in sections so the glue doesn’t dry all the way.

This technique gives your work a hand painted look.

I sprayed several sheets with a pearl ex and hairspray mixture to make a shimmery, silvery paper for layering. I loved the effect!

I use grey for wedding cards. It is wonderful almost anywhere you would use black, like matting. It is not so harsh and stark as black. I also put it with the purples and pinks and greens and blues. I use it up as quickly as my other colors.

Grey is grey-t!

It's also good for making faux metal edge tags by using it with your square and circle punches. Not quite the same, but cute anyway.

I can't wait to try these ideas! Wouldn't mind hearing more too! I don't know that I've ever used a sheet of gray.

I love to stamp with going gray especially wedding or anniversary cards. The going gray gives the appearance of being silver.

What an awesome "tip sheet" for your customers. Thanks for the info. on Stampin' Up!'s Going Gray. I find I don't use it much either, but will experiment now.
I'm sorry I can not contribute to the wonderful tips here - I'm blank. Thanks though,
Stampin' Up! is so cool - It's the best.

I have seen the gray ink used for an image and then the image stamped in black and colored and then a portion of the colored image punched and layered over the gray image for a spot-lighting technique.

As for the gray paper, I have never used so much as a sheet. Thanks everyone for such awesome ideas to use it. It will be my must try for the day.

What a great thread! Here's a stunning card by Beate that I've saved in my favorites where she combined Barely Banana, Going Gray and Basic Black:

I was kind of surprised how much I liked gray and yellow together, but there it was! Linda

I absolutely love Going Grey with Pretty in Pink and Positively Pink. I does look good with US White and Silver Embossing done, or with just the Silver metallic pads. Going Grey is a great color, if we just think outside the box a little. If you look in your catalog, I'm sure there are samples in there as well.

I used this same color combo for a breast cancer card using Hope is.... in the fall. I embossed the heart in pink on black and put pink mulberry paper underneath, but on top of Going Gray. I'll find it and upload it.

I like the gray with purple or blue shades. Actually, it goes with almost anything, especially if you mat it with black. It can be very classy!

I like to use the going gray with word sets to give them an outline look...creates depth and dimension. I have to use a stamp a ma jig to offset the top color word stamp a little so the gray still shows and the word stamp is straight. I think it is also great for creating shadow on watercolored images.

I just posted a card yesterday with Going Gray & Mauve Mist. I used the reinkers to make a polished stone background, I was really pleased with it. I'll try to attach the link:

This might be a good color combo challenge....Just use the going gray and see what color combos you can come up with for it...no limitations.

Just a thought.

Another thought....do we have a Thursday Challenge? Could we have a Ways to Use It challenge where some SU item was picked and we tried to see how many different ways it could be used? One week could be going grey cardstock, ink, etc. another could be brads or ribbon or a certain punch...you get the idea.

What do you think?

OK, this is the wrong time of year, but my demonstrator made the cutest Halloween card at one of her stamp camps and I modified it a little bit using the Going Gray paper. You sponge with the cloud stencil in gray ink for a spooky sky, then use the seasonal shapes to make a bat shape, cut that out, and sponge around the edges in black to make a bat outline in the gray sky. Stamp the face on the bat and edge the card with either brilliant blue, lovely lilac, green galore, only orange, or tempting turquoise. I think this card is adorable!!! I used up all my Going Gray to make a stack of these! Hope the picture comes through OK. Oh, by the way, the moon was made using the ring from a wide-mouth canning jar!

For some reason I think of Going Grey as a manly/boyish color so I use it for "guy" cards. An industrial look, kinda like, sorta.....

Default Going Grey

Great card links showing Going Grey!

It's also a good background color for sympathy cards especially used with all the pinky mauvy tones there are. Not as stark as black edging etc.

I find I don't really have any colors I don't use but obviously there are some that are favorites!

When you bleach going grey it turns a flesh tone. I've embossed an image with a person in it (like the angel from the Winter hostess set) then bleached what would be the flesh areas. For the angel I used pastels for her dress and Pearl Ex for her wings. It was very nice looking, elegant. Just be sparing on the bleach. If you overdo it the bleach will seep underneath the embossing.
