MFT Stamps | Color Challenge 184

February 27, 2022

Hello friends! There’s a brand new color challenge going on over at MFT Stamps! Come play along for a chance to win a $50 MFT Gift Voucher! The color for this challenge are Cement Gray, Sour Apple, Blue Yonder, and Blue Beyond. You don’t have to use those exact colors but rather colors that these shown inspire you to use.

For my take on the challenge, I colored the adorable whale from the BB Friends With Fins Stamp Set. I added some ocean foliage from both the BB Mermazing and Gill Friends Stamp Sets. For my background, I trimmed two pieces of Smooth White Card Stock to 4.25″ x5.5″ and blended the one with some Blue Yonder and Blue Beyond MFT Premium Dye Inks and I die cut a window in the other using the Watercolor Wash Free Form Die-namics.

I used Copic Markers to color both my whale and the ocean greenery on the lower left. I adhered my window panel to my bottom piece with 3D Adhesive Tape for extra dimension and also used it to attach my images for added depth.

Copic Colors Used:

  • Whale: C00, C1, C3, C5
  • Greens: YG01, YG06, YG17, YG67

    The watery background is stunning, Rachel! So vibrant and full of depth. You sure know your way around creating an amazing background! The whale and foliage pop so nicely against it. Wonderful work!
