MFT Stamps | Color Challenge #141

May 14, 2020

Hello friends! It’s time for a brand new Color Challenge from My Favorite Things! You don’t have to use the exact colors that are listed in the challenge but rather colors that these colors inspire you to use!

For my take on this challenge, I used the Rain or Shine Stamp Set illustrated by Birdie Brown. I stamped all of my images with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink onto a sheet of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock (my favorite for deep/rich coloring) and then colored them with Copic Markers. I then used the coordinating Rain or Shine Die-namics to cut them out.

Copic Colors Used:

  • Skin: E0000, E000, E11, E04
  • Yellows: Y11, Y13, Y15, V12
  • Hair: E42, E43, E44, E47
  • Light Gray: C00, C0, C2, C4
  • Dark Gray: C5, C7, C8
  • Blues: B000, B02, B04, B06

For my background, I blended some Tumbled Glass, Salty Ocean, and Chipped Sapphire Distress Inks onto a smooth piece of white card stock. I blended from the top with the darkest color to the lightest, fading out to white toward the bottom of my panel. I diecut this piece with one of the A2 Stitched Rectangle STAX Die-namics and then stamped my sentiment at the bottom prior to attaching this piece to my A2 sized card base. Lastly, I added my images with some 3D Foam Adhesive Tape to give them some added dimension.

Here’s a look at this week’s color palette. Come play along for a chance to win a $50 MFT Gift Voucher! Winner is chosen at random. Make sure to stop by the MFT Blog for some more challenge inspiration!
