This week at Jingle Belles we're celebrating a Neutral Noel with our Lovely Guest Star Noelle McAdams ... we're creating holiday cards which embrace ONLY the neutral colors: white, cream, ivory, ecru, black, grey, charcoal, obsidian, brown, tan, kraft, camel, oatmeal, sienna; use them all together, or choose one and rock the monochrome, whatever you desire; if it's NEUTRAL, it's *IN*!!! And yes, for the record, we consider gold, copper and silver to be the "bling" equivalent of neutrals, so you may use them as much (or as little) as you'd like!
I love how a challenge like this makes me think differently about my supplies. I think this gorgeous Hero Arts Aspen Frost Poinsettia stamp looks so elegant in charcoal ink on soft stone cardstock, but without thinking *neutral* I probably never would have tried this combination.
I added several spritzes of pearl glimmer mist for all-over sparkle as well as highlights from a silver glitter pen to the centers of the bloom. I used an SRM Sticker sentiment (loved the *bright* pun with my neutral palette) on top of a scrap of the pearly sprayed cardstock & an elegant black bow tie to finish the design.
