BasicGrey Challenge and more

I've made this card for this weeks BasicGrey Challenges which is a great sketch. I used acidwashed griffin and black tie BG carstock along with a hampton arts stamp that came with a job lot!
Here are a couple of atc's that I've made, sorry about the poor photo!
... and this is the reason that this post is so brief - I now have to go and get kids from school early!!!
Stamps used: hampton arts, forever friends
Inks used: brown stazon, stampin' up basic grey, distress inks (BG card)
Colouring method: watercolour pencils
Cardstock used: various from stash + wallpaper (ff atc)
Other Embellishments: buttons, ribbons, brads etc
Tools: Sizzix dies,

I see you had snow too LOL. The children around here didn't go to school at all yesterday and the whole area was one big playground for snowman building! I love your card Jenny, I haven't seen this BG paper before and I love it, great for mens cards. Perfect stamp to use with it too. Chris x
