A New Challenge at Mark's Finest Papers

Happy Thursday Everyone!!!  I have some exciting news.  The Mark's Finest Papers Scrapbook Challenge has been changed to a Color Challenge that is open to all types of papercrafts, not just scrapbook pages. So those of you that don't scrapbook will now be able to participate in our Thursday challenge.

Each week we will have a color or colors that you have to incorporate in your project. and you must use stamp(s) on the project.  This week's colors are Red, Black and White.

The guidelines for the color challenge are simple:
1. Use the challenge colors as your main colors.  You can use any shades or hues of the challenge colors.
2. You can add any neutral colors (browns, grays, white, cream, kraft etc.) that you wish.
3. You can use an accent color in addition to the challenge colors, but it must be an accent only and not one of the main colors.
4. You must use stamps on your project.

You can use any type of stamps you wish, but if you use Mark's Finest Papers, a Heinrich Co stamps, you will be entered twice for a chance to win our weekly stamp prize.   We start our weekly challenge every Thursday, and there's a new stamp prize each week so be sure to stop back by.

This week, one blessed winner will receive our Lighthouse on the Cliffs stamp...

For my layout I used a photo of my Dad on a little horse, taken in 1930, when he was one year old.  The photo I used on my page is a scanned copy.  My dad has the original photo in a scrapbook that I did for his 80th birthday several years ago. I used stamps from the MFP Cowgirl's Rule set.

I can't wait to see what you create for this week's challenge! To be eligible to win be sure to link your page to MFPSpeedyTV Color Challenge #1  and mention the MFPSpeedyTV Color Challenge in your blog post. If you use MFP stamps on your page, be sure to mention that in your post as well. You have until 9:00 pm on Wednesday December 18th to submit your layouts.

I am also sharing this at Word Art Wednesday Challenge # 110 - Anything Goes
