MFT Creative Challenge | Jazz Up Your Blooms

Hello again!  It's time for another MFT Design Team Creative Challenge and this month we are challenged to use bring life to our flowers by stamping patterns on those beautiful petals.

I'm using the Plaid Background Builder and LJD Darling Dots to bring some pop to these petals.

I started by cutting out a piece of Smooth White Card Stock with the Hybrid Camellia Flower Die-namics and then stamped the dots in Razzle Berry Ink and the stripes in Blu Raspberry Ink.  After rolling the center piece of the flower, I added a little enamel dot to the middle.  I stamped the sentiment from Essential Sentiments in Black Licorice Ink.  The color combo I used tonight is the April Color Palette Challenge.

Be sure to stop by the MFT Blog for a complete list of designers playing along in this month's Creative Challenge.

You can find these fun products waiting for you in the MFT Boutique:
