MFT September Creative Challenge ~ NO COLORING!

In 2011, MFT is working harder than ever to inspire you, and we have come up with something we think you'll really enjoy. Our Design Team Creative Challenge is a new monthly feature, where we challenge our design team to explore their creative side using a specific theme, product or technique. This month, we're all putting down the markers, pencils and paints and sharing projects with No Coloring!   Visit Kim's Blog for a full list of designers that have taken up the challenge!

Wishing You Happiness:


My first thought when I saw this challenge was NO WAY! No coloring?  Not participating!  LOL!  I quickly changed my mind and decided to jump in!  It wasn't too bad after all.....

While rifling through all of my MFT stamps I decided to use the gorgeous Inspired By Flowers set #2.  The flowers in this set are BEAUTIFUL uncolored because they have so much detail.  Perfect for this challenge!

I stamped the rose in Memento Tuxedo Black onto a piece of patterned paper.  It was cut out with Circle Nestabilities.  The black striped layer was made with the Die-namics Solid Bracket Border die.  I masked off the sentiment leaving just the first two words and cut it out with a tag die Nestability.  It was tied to the crinkled seam binding with some linen thread.  Some machine stitching, adhesive gems and a rounded corner finish the front of the card.


This is the finished inside.  I stamped the flower one more time and completed the sentiment.


Well, that's all from me today!  I hope you all have a great Tuesday!
