Howdy... MFT March Creative Challenge 36

Mona Pendleton | Monday, March 25, 2013 @ 9:00 PM | , , , , ,

Hi there!  Welcome to the March MFT Design Team Creative Challenge! In case you are not familiar, the MFT Design Team Creative Challenge is a monthly feature, where we (the MFT DT) are challenged to explore our creative side using a specific theme, product, or technique. This month, we are highlighting our favorite color combinations using MFT Ink, cardstock, buttons, ribbon, and felt. 
Since MFT offers such a versatile rainbow of colors of ink, cardstock, buttons, ribbon, and felt, the possibilities of color combinations are endless!

My first card is a masculine card featuring the following combination of colors:

Button: Whip Cream
To create this card, I stamped a polka dot background strip from LJD Darling Dots using Kraft ink on a die cut piece of Natural cardstock. The layered stamp label was made by stamping a label image from DC Well Worn Greetings using Sno Cone ink on a die cut label made using Die-namics Well Worn Greetings die and the sentiment was stamped using a combination of Gumdrop Green and Black Licorice inks. I finished it off with a Kraft cardstock die cut star that was made using a die from Die-namics Star STAX which I then added texture using my hand held paper crimper. I adhered a Whip Cream button on using a piece of Natural Hemp. 
My second card is a feminine card featuring the following combination of colors:

ButtonKraft
To create this card, I first stamped the background using a polka dot background strip from LJD Darling Dots using Pink Lemonade ink. I stamped a sentiment from DC Gift Card Greetings using Kraft ink on a Natural cardstock die cut pocket made using cardstock and Die-namics Gift Card Pocket - Horizontal. The butterfly was stamped using Pink Lemonade ink and features a Kraft button.
The trio of roses were made using Die-namics Mini Rolled Roses along with the following colors of cardstock:  Cotton CandyPink LemonadeWhip Cream along with Kraft leaves that were made using Die-namics Royal Leaves.
Thanks so much for visiting! Be sure to check out the MFT Blog for a list of all participating designers who have a project to share with you today!
