MFT Color Challenge #111

February 14, 2019
It’s time for a new Color Challenge from My Favorite Things!  This week’s color combo is a gorgeous combination of reds, gray, and white.  You don’t have to use the exact colors listed to play along but simply use ones inspired by the colors shown on the challenge palette.
I put together a fun little shadow box featuring the SY Joyful Heart Bears Stamp Set.  I first created the base of my box by trimming two pieces of Smooth White Card Stock to 7″ x 4.25″.  I scored these pieces along the long side at 1.5″ and 5.5″ so that the final dimensions of my shadow box is 4″ wide, 1.5″ deep and 4.25″ tall.
I diecut a circle into the front of one panel using the Circle STAX Die-namics Set 1.  To get a frame around the outside, I used both the Circle STAX Die-namics Set 2 along with the Inside & Out Stitched Circle Die-namics with a piece of Red Hot Card Stock.  To get the dimension on the inside of my shadow box, I trimmed two more pieces of White Card Stock to 4.75″ x 4.25″ and scored along the long side at 3/8″ and 4 3/8″.  I then diecut circles (using a smaller circle than the panel in front of it) for each panel.
I stamped all of my images with Copic friendly Black Ink and used Copic Sketch Markers to color them.  I used the coordinating dies to cut them out.  I added some foliage in both Red Hot and Electric Red Card Stock using the Fab Foliage Die-namics.
I used clear acetate to add the butterflies.  Lastly, I heat embossed the my sentiment on a piece of Electric Red Card Stock with Fine Detail White Embossing Powder.  I used the Essential Fishtail Sentiment Strips Die-namics to cut out my sentiment and then trimmed off the fishtails with a pair of scissors.
Come join in on the fun for a chance to win a $50 MFT Gift Voucher!  Head on over to the MFT Challenge & Inspiration Blog to see what the rest of the participating DT Members have created.
