This week's challenge is to create a project (card, layout or other papercrafted item) using only neutral colors from the Close To My Heart Basic color palette. They are:
Colonial White and
At first I thought that this would be difficult as I usually prefer bright colors but then I remembered that I had the perfect CTMH paper in my stash. Silhouette was one of my favorite Close To My Heart papers which retired several years ago but it works great for this color challenge! It features Black, Bamboo, Colonial White and White Daisy. The paper I chose has a lovely floral pattern to it. On my first card I also added Chocolate, Colonial White and Desert Sand cardstocks and used Almond Glitz Glitter Gel and Stardust Glitz Glitter Gel to embellish the patterned paper. The sentiment is from Card Chatter--Sympathy (a very versatile set) and it was inked in Versamark ink, Chocolate ink and then clear embossed to give it some texture.
After I applied the CTMH Glitter Gels I wondered if maybe I went overboard with it so I made two more cards trying out different neutral colors. In this next card I used Black and White for the greeting and Colonial White as the card base.
This last card features Black embossed sentiment on a Bamboo strip of cardstock with a black card base.
This neutrals color challenge at Color My Heart Color Dare ends at 9PM Central Time on Thursday. We would love to have you join us there!
Thanks for stopping by! Have a wonderful week filled with fun and creativity!
