you are a blessing * MFT Superstar Contest

Hi there, 
this is card no. 3 for the MFT Card Design Superstar Contest. I knew I would enter the Clean and Simple category and I challenged myself to play along the Innovation Master one as well but I never thought I would enter the Coloring Virtuoso one. 

I'm usually a clean and simple cardmaker because this busy mom here has not so much time for crafting and I feel comfortable with this card style. But two days ago, I got so inspired by this fall stamp set, I wanted to use ALL the images on one card. Most of the time, I'm to lazy or in a hurry for intricate masking but this time... I just went for it and it was SO MUCH fun. But then, the next carmaker problem hit me... I was kinda scared to start coloring and messing up all the time-consuming masking. Again, I just went for it and OMG, I colored for about two and a half hours - let's just say I went to bed way too late. But hey, I had a blast! 😉


I went for a mix of Spectrum Noir alcohol markers and Caran D'Ache Luminance colored pencils. I tried to use harmonious colors and use them evenly over my card to create a balanced look.
