#613 – MFT Sketch and Color Challenges

Hello! I was rearranging some MFT related Pinterest boards the other day and got super inspired by all the cards I had pinned there.. I mean, their DT has always created the most adorable, beautiful and charming cards – how could one not get inspired. More reason to make them – the MFT Sketch and Color Challenges!

I usually make a single card for both the challenges. But this time, I thought of separating the two.. more cards to make, right?! πŸ˜€ Here’s what my inspired self created –

You Are Amazing

For my first card, the inspiration comes from three sources, actually – thee sketch from Stamplorations, the colors from MFT Color Challenge and the layout from The Flower Challenge. I chose distress inks to stamp and color the flowers from MFT Modern Blooms stamp set, using a brush to lightly spread the colors to show off the texture of the paper also. I used normal inks for the leaves, and distress inks again for the stencilled background.

Here’s the supply list –

My Favorite Things Modern Blooms stamps
My Favorite Things Flashy Florals stamps
My Favorite Things Wonky Chevrons stencil
My Favorite Things Geometric Greenery stamp (partial sentiment)
Stamplorations Amazing die
clear rhinestones

You Are Amazing

I am submitting this card to the following challenges –

MFT Color Challenge #68

Stamplorations May Challenge (I used the sketch and stamping)

The Flower Challenge #8: CASE The DT Member – I chose Karren’s card. I love the stencil background.. partially done, and then the flowers stamped on top. Such a simple beauty!

And here’s my second card –

Friend, Sending you Hugs

For my second card, I used a bit of no line watercoloring. I must say, the image for this card came pretty immediately as soon as I saw the sketch. I’ve completely used distress inks on this card, including the background stamping and the sentiment.

Supply list –

My Favorite Things Some Bunny stamps
My Favorite Things Fresh Cut Grass die
