Hi, all, I'm back with the latest MFT Color Challenge! Are you ready? Here’s this week’s color combo: Ripe Raspberry, Orange Zest, Gumdrop Green, and Blue Yonder. 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 wanted to play with my watercolor pencils again and I thought LLD Sweet Succulents would be just the thing for these colors. First, though, I created my background by spreading molding paste through English Brick Wall Stencil. While it was drying I adhered a strip of Black & White Stripes Patterned Paper across the bottom of a Sweet Tooth card stock base. The sentiment strip was heat embossed on Black Licorice card stock and adhered directly to the card front.
I stamped the images on Ranger Watercolor Paper with Extreme Black Hybrid ink, cut them out with the coordinating dies, colored them, and popped them up on the finished card base with foam tape for the finish.
And there you have it! Remember, you can get all the details by visiting the MFT Challenge Blog. You have the chance to win a $50 in MFT voucher. One winner is chosen at random each week!
Thanks for stopping by! See you soon!
