If I Were a Cactus, I'd Still Hug You - MFT Color Challenge #165


Hi all, I'm back with the latest MFT Color Challenge! Are you ready? Here's this week's color combo: Candied Yam, Moroccan Spice, Prickly Pear, and Jalapeño Popper. All of the details about the color challenge are available on the MFT 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.

These colors have a Southwestern vibe to me so I immediately thought of cacti, specifically BB Let's Stick Together Stamp Set and Die-namics.

To begin, I stamped the images on No Line Coloring card stock with Extreme Black hybrid ink, cut them out with the coordinating Die-namics, and colored them with Copic markers. 

Next I created the background, sponging Candied Yam and Moroccan Spice dye inks for the top and Kraft dye ink for the ground on Strathmore Bristol Smooth paper, then spattering with clean water and black acrylic ink.

Once that was dry I stamped the sentiment, adhered it to a Sweet Tooth card stock base, then popped the colored images up on foam tape. I finished off with some enamel dots in the challenge colors.

And that's it from me today! Thanks so much for stopping by! See you soon!
