My Favorite Things Design Team Creative Challenge

Arlene and Eva had an idea for this month's MFT Design Team Creative Challenge, and I'll admit, this one scared the pants off of me.  They challenged us to show off some monchromatic coloring on our projects.  Now, I've seen this look in blog-land before and loved it... but I've never been brave enough to give it a go.

I reached for an assortment of black and ivory papers, and all the W Copic Markers I have.  I used W00 for her skin, W1 and W2 for her hair and W5, W2 and W1 for her clothes.  The stamp set is Being Cute is What I Do. (seems you all like her too because she's out of stock at the moment..)


I love the font treatment in the Well Worn Greetings stamp set and there are SO many fun sentiments in that set to choose from.  I have a feeling this is going to be a "go to" set for me.

You'll probably recognize I used the newest SFYTT from Jen again.  I was a little freaked by the only coloring with GREY so I figured a little head start in the layout department would help me out! 

Is this my favorite card I've ever made? Well, not quite exactly, but I didn't skip the challenge (which I very nearly did..)  Be sure to visit the MFT Blog today for a full list of designers participating in this crazy challenge.
