Funny clean and simple card for Color Challenge 126

Funny CAS card for MFT Color Challenge 126.

Hi again! I’m back with another clean and simple card… this one features the funny peeing dog from the You Make My Tail Wag stamp set.

I created it for the My Favorite Things Color Challenge 126. The beautiful color palette definitely has a fall vibe to it and I could have grabbed any recent MFT product, but I really wanted to use the above mentioned stamp set for the first time.

Being me, I googled “orange hydrant” and they actually exist. Apparently the different colors indicate different types of water, water pressure, etc.

I finally ended up using all four colors, in my funny little city scene… including the Lemmon Chiffon, ahem, ahem. Even though the card looks simple, it took a while to create it with all the masking and fussy cutting. I actually used stamps from three different sets!

  1. Stamping the drops from the SY Piggy Pebbles stamp set.
  2. Placing the puddle stamp from the BB Rain or Shine stamp set.
  3. Masking the hydrant.
  4. Result of the stamping of the puddle.
  5. Three masks + masking tape.
  6. Ink blending with Cement Gray Premium Dye Ink.

I used both Copic markers and Prismacolor pencils to color the scene and applied a little bit of Glossy Accents to the drops and to the nose. I’m not a fan of adding it to create water… it doesn’t usually look great. So I just used colors to create the reflection. HERE’s another card of mine with a reflective surface.

I hope I didn’t take the funny element too far and hurt sensibilities. 😉 Will you join us and create a project for Color Challenge 126 at the MFT Blog? You could win a $50 gift voucher to the MFT Boutique!
