Hi, all, I'm back with this week's MFT Color Challenge! Are you ready? Here’s this week’s color combo: After Midnight, Steel Gray, Limelight, and Tickled Pink. All of the details about the color challenge are available on the MFT Challenge & Inspiration blog as well as in the weekly newsletter. The MFT Challenge & Inspiration Team will be on hand to provide plenty of inspiration to get you started.
I love this color combo! Of course it spoke “flower” to me so I brought out one of my favorite flower dies, Prima Donna Petals Die-namics. I cut it out with Ranger watercolor paper and colored the parts with Zig Clean Color Brush Markers and set it aside to dry. Next stamped more Ranger watercolor paper with Primitive Chevron Background and Steel Gray hybrid ink, then colored in random areas with the challenge colors and popped it up on foam mounting tape. I added a Stitched Mini Scallop Circle STAX Die-namics also cut from watercolor paper and did a pale gray wash before popping it up, as well.
The stamped sentiment is from BB Birthday Bears, stamped with Steel Gray hybrid ink on Sweet Tooth card stock cut with Blueprints 20 Die-namics. I cut three copies of the word “thanks” from Steel Gray card stock with Words of Gratitude Die-namics, glued them all together and adhered them to the sentiment strip. I assembled the flower and added it to the circle along with some Leafy Greenery Die-namics to complete the card.
And there you have it! Thanks so much for stopping by today—see you soon!
