With Gratitude - MFT Color Challenge #170


Hi all, I'm back with the latest MFT Color Challenge! Are you ready? Here's this week's color combo: Sour Apple, Butterscotch, Candied Yam, and Gravel Gray. 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.

This color combo really spoke to me because it has a Fall vibe--I love Fall and can't wait for it to arrive! To that end, I got out Falling Leaves Die-namics and got to work cutting card stock in the challenge colors. Once I had enough cut, I started sponging the edges with the same colors of dye ink, mixing it up to try to simulate nature.

Once the sponging was done and dried, I slightly watered down some Gravel Gray dye ink and spattered them lightly. Then I arranged them in a wreath shape on the front of a Sweet Tooth card stock base. Once I had it laid out like I wanted, I pencil-drew a circle using A2 Circle STAX as a guide while I adhered the leaves with hot glue.

For the sentiment, I cut Elegant Folded Banner Die-namics from Gravel Gray card stock and heat embossed the sentiment, from Bitty Thanks and Gratitude Stamp Set and adhered it to the wreath, also with hot glue.

And there you have it! Now it’s YOUR turn to play! Remember, you can get all the details by visiting the MFT Blog. You have the chance to win a $50 in MFT voucher. Winners are chosen at random, so everyone has a chance!
