MFT September Creative Challenge - No Colouring!

Yikes!!! Seriously??? No colouring??????? I actually thought this was going to be more difficult that it was and I'm super happy with how my card turned out. Not to mention it came together really quickly since I didn't spend any time colouring!!!

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!

For my card I inked up this month's WTG, Who's that Mummy. I didn't get a chance to use her during teasers and I thought she was perfect for this challenge.

If you look closely at the image you'll see that she's stamped onto patterned paper. There's a very light grey harlequin motif with some script running through it. It's light enough that it doesn't obscure the image but it added just enough pattern to keep it interesting. The only solid cardstock I used on this card is Black Licorice, and Sweet Tooth for the card base. The rest of the papers are from my Fancy Pants Oct 31st 6x6 paper pad.

You'll notice a few of the new die-namics, the mini pennant and the prima donna petals. The dizzy border is tucked in there too because I thought the lacey look of it was kinda spider web-ish. I finished it off with a charcoal twine bow.

I hope you'll take this month's challenge and put away the markers, pencils and paints for a card or two.

Here are the die-namics I used:

Thanks for stopping by!
