Thank You - MFT Color Challenge #17


Hi, all, I'm back with this week's MFT Color Challenge! Are you ready? Here’s this week’s color combo: Tropical Teal, Coral Crush, Steel Blue, Primitive White. 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.


OK, so I strayed a little bit. I used no Primitive White card stock ‘cause I water colored my front panel with Ranger Watercolor Paper. That out of the way, I stamped images from LJD Circle Scribble Flowers with Versamark and heat embossed with white embossing powder, then water colored the images with a small water brush and Coral Crush dye ink, and Tropical Teal dye ink. The sentiment, from LJD Blissful Butterflies, was stamped with Steel Gray dye ink. I had forgotten what a nice gray it is—I’ll be using it more now. My card base is Steel Blue card stock with a layer of Coral Crush card stock. The focal panel was popped up on it with foam mounting tape. To finish off, I added some enamel dots, sequins, and clear gems—I might have gotten a little carried away with them ;-)

On the inside, I stamped a sentiment from More Essential Sentiments with Steel Blue dye ink on Sweet Tooth card stock.


And there you have it! Thanks so much for stopping by today! See you soon!
