MFT Design Team Creative Challenge - No Coloring!

Today is the My Favorite Things Design Team Creative Challenge. After a little break from our new release festivities last week, its time for us to jump in and try something new.  Each month in our Design Team Creative Challenge, we're exploring our creative side with a specific theme, product or technique.

This month's challenge was a scary one.... 
to step back from the markers, pencils and paints
and create a project with no coloring.  GASP!

There are a few artists on my google reader that do this regularly and it is striking.  But let's be real. I was terrified....

I decided that I couldn't live with the image stamped on plain white paper, so I stamped onto a piece of ledger paper.  I loved the way the girls on the team used the First Class Friend Die-namic as a frame for their image.  So, I gave it a go.  I left the ledger paper wider and taller, and then gave it a lot of distressing and distress-inking.  Finally that frame is stitched in place. (it was bugging me not to color it... so I had to employ all my other details instead!)

I reached for Pure Innocence: Book in Hand to make a card for a little daycare client of mine who is headed off to school. Sniff sniff.  I adore this little girl and I'm SO sad!  Excited for her for school, sad for me.....


I've added a bit more color back into the project with a sentiment circle, I reached for "missU" from the Say What Stamp Set and Die-namics. A bit of the Simply Scallops trim finish off my card.

Be sure to stop by the MFT Blog today for a list of all the girls participating in this (scary!) challenge!
