MFT January Release Countdown Day 4!


WOW!! what a heat wave we are getting here on the Eastern side of Australia, I hope you are all hunkered down and staying cool, watching the weather reports and staying safe..

Whilst sitting here under the AC, thought it was time to sit and type up my post for today to make sure it is scheduled seeing as yesterday went a little pair shaped…thank you to everyone that expressed concern over Darryl, he is doing okay, although we still have a few more tests ahead of us next week, so my fingers are crossed tightly that everything will be okay..

Today at MFT we are counting down and we are now at day 4 of the January Release…

I chose to use the latest and cutest Birdie Brown image and this time she created a sweet Viking, I don’t normally gravitate to Vikings but this one was super fun to colour, once again, I chose to colour with my new set of Polychromos..

I worked on the background of the card next, taking a piece of white card stock and the Full of Heart Stencil, applying Biscotti Ink in various places to the left hand side of the panel..

Once I was happy with the stencil, I then took my Mini Misti and the card stock, stamping a sentiment from the !00% Loveable stamp set, stamping a couple of times to get a crisp image..

Sticking with sentiments I took a sentiment from the From the Heart and stamped onto some Safety Orange card stock, embossing with White Embossing Powder..

I added this Safety Orange and Cement Gray strips of card stock to the bottom of the card stock, adding my viking just above the strips and my card was complete..

Be sure to swing over to the MFT Blog today and check out what the rest of the team are sharing..

I will be back tomorrow for more to share..
