You Are My Happy Place–MFT Color Challenge #82


Hi, all, I'm back with the latest MFT Color Challenge! Are you ready? Here’s this week’s color combo: Cornflower, Blu Raspberry, Coral Crush, and Lemon Chiffon. 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 Design Team will be on hand to provide plenty of inspiration to get you started.


I love these colors!! They worked perfectly with an oil painting I’d pinned onto my inspiration board—I love it and it was just sitting there waiting to inspire me! I sponged the background (masked off the top while doing the bottom and vice versa) using the challenge colors in dye ink and stamped the sentiment from Beach Bunnies before popping it up on foam on a card base.


Then I cut and adhered several elements from Beach Scene Builder Die-namics and added Puffy Clouds cut from Grout Gray card stock. I used my white gel pen to add a moon path on the water. So pleased with how this turned out!

All products from My Favorite Things unless otherwise noted.
