Oh So Neutral – Color Dare #202

Thank goodness it’s Friday and time for another Color Dare!  Are you having fun playing along with our challenges?  Color Dare #202 had me stumped…browns + Colonial White.


I’m not much of a neutral’s girl – I need that pop of color in my life!  But after a little thought and some help from a friend we sketched out a card that turned out pretty darn good.


I started by pulling out all my brown inks and paper fundamentals and although this stamp set is intended for use with some blue & green (Go ‘Hawks) I thought it might work for this challenge!

I was inspired by a scrapbook layout in the Seasonal Expressions 2 and started cutting banners from the Artistry Cricut Cartridge.  I thought I’d just go for broke and started stamping the word FOOTBALL down the side in all the browns – it sort of gave it a ombre look.  I stamped the player and then fussy cut the football…I tried it at several places and decided I liked it down near the banners best.  To finish it off I layered a strip of bronze shimmer trim across the top of the banners.

Make sure you take a minute to check out what the rest of the Design Team has done for the Color Dare.  Leave me a little love while you’re here and make sure to play along too!  Even if you don’t have a blog you can leave your entry on our Facebook Page.

Thanks for stopping by!
