MFT Stamps: World Cardmaking Day Challenges

I didn't participate in World Card Making Day yesterday,
because we were in Winnipeg, celebrating Thanksgiving with my mom.
So, I decided to play along with the World Card Making Day
challenges at MFT Stamps this afternoon.

I made five cards for the four challenges. :)

First of all, I created this card for Challenge #1: ROYGBIV,
where we needed to incorporate the colours of the rainbow:

I made a one-layer card using MFT's Beautiful Butterflies.
I stamped my sentiment using Handwritten Holiday and a stamp from PTI.

Next, I created two cards for Challenge #2: Die-Namics Designs,
where we couldn't use stamps, only dies.

I smooshed some aqua and green inks onto watercolour paper and diecut them
using the leaves from Flashy Florals.
I flicked white paint mixed with water onto my kraft cardstock background
and added the thanks (from the Flashy Florals kit), diecut from white cardstock.

I had a few leaves left over, so I made a second card:

On this one, I added a little twine to finish it off.

Next, I created two cards for Challenge #3: By the Numbers,
where we were encouraged to incorporate numbers into our card.
Since I don't own any number stamps or dies from MFT stamps, 
I decided to stamp some stacks of 39 books on the front of my card.

I did some masking to create my stacks using the books from Our Story.
I diecut the watercolour panel, after colouring it in with my Zig Clean Colour Real Brush markers,
with my Mama Elephant Femme Frames diecut.
The sentiment was heat embossed on a strip of black cardstock.

And lastly, I have a card for Challenge #4: Make & Mail,
which I made for my sister-in-law, which I will mail on Tuesday.

For this card, I used MFT's Fall Florals and this week's 

Thanks for looking!

Absolutely LOVE the butterfly card, that is really something, so bright and cheerful. I didn't manage world card making day either as all my stuff is still in boxes. Unpacking the craft room starts this week. Xx

Well done on entering all the MFT WCMD challenges, Leigh!
Congrats on your "By the Numbers" win! So clever to use the books as your number element. Happy shopping!
