Holding You in My Heart–MFT Color Challenge #92


Hi, all, I'm back with the latest MFT Color Challenge! Are you ready? Here’s this week’s color combo: Steel Blue, Lemon Chiffon, Safety Orange, 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 had forgotten how much I loved creating with Stitched Flowers Die-namics but was reminded earlier this week when the Stitched Blooms Card Kit was released! MFT has so many awesome products and this is one I had not shown enough love to recently so I got them out for this card. I used Steel Blue card stock for the leaves and the other three colors for the flowers. I cut a bunch and assembled them then decide on my card design.


I thought these colors would work well for a sympathy card—it always pays to have a couple of these on hand :( I did a watercolor wash for the background then, when it was dry, stamped the sentiment with Extreme Black Hybrid ink (always use a waterproof ink on watercolor paper—it’s a soft paper and dye ink with feather). I popped that up on the card base with foam tape, adhered my flowers and leaves, and added some Clear Round Drops as accents.

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!
