Sending Holiday Cheer - MFT Color Challenge #174


Hi all, I'm back with the latest MFT Color Challenge! Are you ready? Here's this week's color combo: Black Licorice, Sno Cone, Fire Coral, 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.

My inspiration for this card was a painting that I loved of a front door decorated for Christmas. Very CAS but exuding Christmas spirit. I hope I've come somewhat close to the original ;-)

To begin, I sponged my background on Sweet Tooth card stock using Fire Coral dye ink and English Brick wall stencil. Once dry, it was adhered directly to a Sweet Tooth card stock base. Next I stamped the door from BB Sittin' Pretty Stamp Set with Extreme Black hybrid ink on No Line Coloring card stock, cut it out with the coordinating Die-namics and colored it with Copic markers.

I added Stitched Snow Drifts Die-namics cut from Sweet Tooth card stock--the back one directly to the card front, then popped up the door, along with the front snow drift after stamping the sentiment from Bitty Holiday Wishes with Black Licorice dye ink. The door decoration is from Christmas Cardinals Stamp Set, was stamped with Extreme Black hybrid ink on No Line Coloring card stock, cut out with the coordinating Die-namics, colored with Copic markers, and adhered to the door with foam, along with a baker's twine bow.

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 MFT voucher. Winners are chosen at random, so everyone has a chance!
