MFT Color Challenge 122 – Prehistoric Fun

Here is my card for the current MFT color challenge and the inspiration for it:


I used the MFT Cloud stencil to create the background with Distress Oxide inks. Then I stamped images from the MFT Prehistoric Fun stamp set. I watercolored the images with Tombow markers in coordinating colors. I intended to use the coordinating dies, but I made a mess of the outlines as I still have issues controlling the amount of water in my brush. I ended up fussy cutting them to get a clean image. I outlined all the images with a black marker and positioned some flat to the card front and others with foam tape for dimension. The hills were cut with Simon Says Stamp Stitched Slopes and Hills dies. I used Wink of Stella to sparkle up the clouds and dinosaur spots, which were also given a glossy coating with Nuvo Glaze, as did the lava on my volcanoes.

Considering I was initially stumped by this color combo, I have yet another card using it, so stay tuned for take 2!

ETA: 9/9/19 This card was selected as a Top 3 by Cut It Up Challenges!!! It was also picked as an Honorable Mention by 2 Crafty Critter Crazies!!!

  4. Love this prehistoric card…it reminds me of the Grand Canyon dinosaur display at Disneyland. Thanks for joining us at Double Trouble.


    • It’s funny you say that because I was totally thinking of the ride The Land at Epcot in Florida!!! They made the sky look similar and you go through a room with volcanoes. In retrospect, I should have added steam coming off the volcanoes! On that ride, a dinosaur similar to this one spits water at you 🙂


  5. I love the hot colors and the sky is fabulous as well as those cute dinosaurs. What a fun card. So glad you joined us at Die Cut Divas for our “hot” challenge.
