MFT May Release Countdown Day 3!


Hope you are all enjoying your weekend, sadly I am working, but hoping after work I might pop into the craft room to enjoy a little bit of crafting..

Speaking of crafting, I trust you are really enjoying seeing everyone’s creations from the May Release Countdown from MFT, be sure to head over HERE to view even more today, with the halfway of the countdown..

I chose to use the Pure Innocence set called Love you a Bunch…

Of course we all know I love to paper piece these sweet gals, so I firstly coloured in her hair, skin and shoes, then paper pieced her dress with pattern paper from the Sweet Celebration paper pad, finishing off by colouring the flowers she was holding..

I then worked on the background, by trimming a piece of white card stock and adding blending to one section so that each colour would overlap to bring in another colour, Lemon Drop, Berrylicious and Ripe Raspberry were the colours of inks chosen..

I stamped a sentiment off to one side and added my little girl, along with a strip of black and white paper from the Black and White Stripes paper pad along the base of the card stock..

I realised that the card needed just a little addition, so taking Ripe Raspberry card stock and Stitched Heart Grid, I added some hearts in a row, under the sentiment to complete the card..

Enjoy the rest of your day!

See you all again tomorrow..

    I love that you paper pieced the dress. It’s a technique I use often because I don’t like to color. The soft colors you used on the background make this card very pleasing to the eye. Great job!ReplyCancel

    This is certainly an adorable card. MFT gave the perfect name to these characters. I have the stamp, die, and the b&w paper pack on order, so can’t wait to work with everything when it arrives. I noticed that you said you colored the skin, flowers, hair and shoes with Copic markers. I for one would love to know the marker numbers you used for the skin tones. Thank you so much.ReplyCancel
