Neutral Challenge

Sunday Stamps – Stay Neutral SSC221

My card for the Sunday Stamps challenge to use three neutral colors from the graphic provided.

As I am neutral colors challenged, my card uses, gray, black, white and cream. The stencil was sponged using Memento London Fog ink, Tim Holtz weathered wood and black soot distress inks, then using VersaMark and heat set clear embossing powder over the stencil. The background seemed too white so I lightly sponged with london fog ink. My image is a DRS Designs rubber stamp “Birthday Candle Burst” and layered die cut sentiments are Tim Holtz Sizzix Celebration Words dies. This card is intended for an old friend who’s family is throwing a surprise 80th birthday party.

  1. This is a very nice card! I love how the happy and birthday are white with the wishes black. It’s a pretty contrast and goes well with your background and image.

    1. Thanks, Johanna, I’m normally not very good with neutrals as I always want to add some pops of color.
