MFT Stamps | Color Challenge #163

April 1, 2021

Hello everyone! We have a brand new Color Challenge for you to participate in! You have until Wednesday, April 21st at noon to upload your projects into the Inlinkz Link found HERE on the MFT Blog.

The colors for Challenge #163 are Princess Pink, Poppin’ Pink, Prickly Pear, and Gravel Gray. You don’t have to use the exact colors shown but rather the ones that these colors inspire you to use.

I created a one layer card featuring the adorable Balloon Besties Stamp Set. To start, I first trimmed a piece of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock to slightly larger than 4.25″ x 5.5″. I usually do this so that I can trim off any dark ink splotches that might occur along the edges when ink blending. I then used my MISTI to stamp my images with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. I stamped them again onto a piece of Gina K Designs Masking Magic Sheets, fussy cut them out, and placed them over my actual images to create a mask. I then used some purple tape to mask off an area for my sky and blended it with both Mowed Lawn and Peeled Paint Distress Oxide Inks. I then splattered my ink blended area with some diluted white opaque paint as well as some diluted green watercolor paint for added interest.

Next, I removed my masking pieces and allowed my card to dry before coloring my images with Copic Markers.

Head on over to the MFT Blog for more challenge inspiration!
