MCT Designer Challenge: You & Me

by Veronica

Hey there! Today's Designer Challenge is a color challenge. We had to use the colors found in our inspiration photo on our projects. Want to play along? Enter your new project on Emma's blog!

For my project, I used the colors in an unconventional way - all together! I've been LOVING the look of clean, mostly white cards lately and learned a new technique at a scrapbook convention last weekend, so I thought I'd combine the two.

I cut the "&" sign out of the top layer of white and stamped the flourish from Springtime in Paris in multiple colors. To achieve that look, I simply colored the stamp itself with my water-based markers (I use Stampin' Up!) randomly, gave it a good 'huff' (by breathing on it in a "huuuuhhhh" sound - this moistens the ink) and stamped it on the base layer of white. (See, Mom? I knew we didn't need that lady's 'special stamps'. We have AWESOME stamps from MCT!!!)

The "YOU" and "ME" were taken from the Chocolate Greetings stamp set.

Just a little bit of time for a BIG impact! Check out more awesome color challenge projects at the MCT blog.

I hope you were inspired!
