Mark's Finest Papers Color Challenge 4

Happy New Year!!!  It's time for this week's MFP SpeedyTV Color Challenge.  This challenge  is open to all types of papercrafts, including scrapbook pages. Each week we 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 challenge colors are Grey and Yellow.

For my layout I used a photo of my niece on her way to her Senior Prom.  Isn't she gorgeous!  I love the colors in her dress.  I used grey and yellow cardstock for this challenge and misted it with Heidi Swapp Chartreuse Color Shine.  I inked the edges of the yellow cardstock with green yellow Inka Gold Metallic Rub to coordinate with the green in her dress.  My  page accent is a sneak peek from the MFP Paper Doll stamp sets that will be available on January 7.  I accented my doll's dress with a ribbon skirt and rhinestone trim.  To see more of the Paper Doll sets, check out Paper Doll Madness over at MFPSpeedyTV...18 days of projects featuring the Paper Doll Stamp sets.

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 Adirondack Chair stamp...

I can't wait to see what you create for this week's challenge.  To be eligible to win, be sure to link your project to MFP SpeedyTV Color Challenge 4 and mention the MFPSpeedyTV Color Challenge  in your blog post. If you use MFP stamps on your project please note that in your post as well. You have until 9:00 pm on Wednesday January 8th to link up your project.
