Neutral Noel

This fortnight we're asking you to create holiday cards which embrace only the neutral color palette – white, cream, ivory, ecru, silver, gold, black, gray, charcoal, obsidian, brown, tan, kraft, camel, oatmeal, sienna (you get the picture). If you're feeling limited by lack of color, why not think texture? There's burlap, jute, paper bags, cork, chalkboards, sandpaper or lace... Use them all together or chose one hue and rock the monochromatic design  as long as it's NEUTRAL it's in.

Here's what we made for our Neutral Noel:

Stephanie says, "I started with a piece of upcycled Tim Holtz packaging on an ivory cardbase, and then I built my collage from there with lots of neutral bits and bobs. I finished with some Eyelet Outlet Black Pearl Swirl Bling and a neutral poinsettia."

Lauren says, "I raided my well-hoarded stash of Ciao Bella's Snow and the City papers (from Paper Anthology a couple of winters ago) from which I took the bokeh paper, the brick paper and tag, and I was even able to make my focal point by punching a circle from one of the thumbnail pictures on the collection's cover sheet. I mixed in a fabric poinsettia, Eyelet Outlet Snowflake Bling, some Pavilio White Lace Tape, a Tim Holtz sticker sentiment and lots (seriously LOTS!) of distressing and machine stitching."

Link your Neutral Noel masterpieces right here by 6pm (Eastern) on Wednesday, August 9th. Keyword for galleries and Flickr is JB2316.
