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!
I'm so glad you stopped by for today's creative challenge - not colouring is a big change for me, and I'm sure for the rest of the team, but it's so fun to try something new! I choose to use a Pure Innocence image with lots of details that would keep my focal point interesting even without colour.
I started by embossing the cute Astronaut Girl with black embossing powder on kraft cardstock. I added some dimensional magic inside her helmet to give it a glossy look - the embossing really helped keep this exactly where I wanted it.
To add the little mini pennant shape I carefully cut a couple of slits around her hand with a craft blade and slid the die cut through it so it looks like it's being held in her hand.
Inside the card I've shadow stamped the image upside down, like she's floating around in space. Visit Kim's Blog for a full list of designers that have taken up the no colouring challenge today!
Here are the Die-namics I've used today:
