Hello everyone! We've got some new Design Team challenges with MFT to start sharing with y'all this year - this first one being Creative Construction with Blueprints.
MFT has a LOT of Blueprints Die-namics in their lineup, and it only made sense for this first challenge to go back to the beginning and focus on the first 2 sets of Blueprints: Blueprints 1 and Blueprints 2.
Make sure to check out MFT's blog post here for all the info plus links to all the other Design Team members playing along to see what they've created!
I've got a couple of cards to share with y'all, the first one was made using dies from the Blueprints 1 Die-namics set and following one of the sketches MFT digitally provides as a download on the Blueprints 1 page.
I pulled out the Birdie Brown You're Super set for this card - LOVE this set.
After coloring in the image with Copics I added a tiny bit of Tsukineko Pico in Morocco (which is a REALLY close match in color to MFT's Persimmon) to the outside parts of her cape - love the deeper color and shine it gave.
On the inside of the card I stamped the city line with Tropical Teal and Limelight inks, then stamped the sentiments with Persimmon and Black Licorice inks. I then finished it off by stamping the "explosion" with Lemon Drop ink - stamping it several times without reinking.
Now if y'all have read my blog/watched my videos for a while y'all know how much I love the Blueprints 1 & 2 sets for the largest dies that I use a LOT for layering on my cards. Honestly I rarely if ever have used the other dies, so this challenge was a welcome change to actually make me use them!
After the first card I went a totally different direction with the second card - still keeping with the same color combo:
I die cut the buttons with the die from the Blueprints 1 set and stamped them with their coordinating ink colors and different MFT Background stamps.
The Black Licorice card stock was die cut with a die from the Blueprints 2 set and I layered 2 of them to stretch across the card.
I used MFT's Get Well Soon stamp set for the sentiments and that was it!
