MFT Stamps | Color Challenge #140

April 23, 2020

Hello friends! It’s time for a brand new Color Challenge from My Favorite Things! The colors in the pallet this time are Smooth White, Sno Cone, Blu Raspberry, and Orange Zest. You don’t have to pick the exact colors listed in the challenge but rather ones that these colors inspire you to use!

For my card today, I combined a few fun stamp sets illustrated by Stacey Yacula. I stamped an adorable field mouse from the Piles of Fun Stamp Set with Black Ink onto a sheet of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I also stamped some balloons from the Sweet Shop Set and a little party hat from the Birdie Brown Happy Hippos Set.

I then used Copic Markers to color my images and the coordinating die-namics to cut them out.

Copic Colors Used:

  • Mouse: 0, W00, W0, W2, W4
  • Party Hat: Y02, Y04, Y09, E35
  • 1st Balloon (from left to right): BG10, BG11, BG13, BG49
  • 2nd Balloon (middle): G0000, G00, BG34
  • 3rd Balloon: BG0000, BG000, BG02, BG05

I then trimmed a piece of Smooth White Card Stock to 4.25″ x 5.5″ and masked off the bottom portion with some Purple Tape. I then used the English Brick Wall Stencil to blend a partial brick pattern in the background using some Blu Raspberry Premium Dye Ink. I then lightly colored in a floor using some Warm Gray Copic Markers (W00, W0, W2). I then stamped my sentiment from the SY It’s a Mice Time To Celebrate Stamp Set and lastly added my images with some 3D Foam Adhesive Tape to give them some subtle dimension.

I encourage you to come and play along! One random entry will be chosen to win a $50 MFT Gift Voucher! Make sure to head to the MFT Blog for more challenge inspiration!
