My second entry for this years MFT Stamps‘ Superstar contest is for the colouring category. I’ve been unsure if I was going to have the energy for this as I’ve been unwell most of this month so far, the past week and a half with a nasty cold and a cough that simply will neither let go nor let me sleep. Oh how I am looking forward to it disappearing!
Anyway, here I am with my finished project. I had an idea which I think fits with the last year. How some people make a difference and make your life more colourful. So the front is coloured in black and white, the first page inside is the same image, but in colour, and then it’s a normal greeting area inside with the text “You Make Everyday Life Feel Special”. I have combined various sets from the Birdie Brown and Stacey Yacula collections for the scene.
Here is the front of the card. I have used scissors to cut a small tab at the bottom which I embossed a small greeting onto. I’ve also used chunky embossing to create snow on the image.
Here is the flip inside with the coloured image. I’ve added “snow” to this panel as well as another sentiment:
And the page inside with the greeting:

Oh I love this – what a clever idea. Love the greys…looks so different – I have that stamp too and I’ve never seen it coloured like this!
Congratulations! This is beautifully colored!
