Celebrate MFT Day



Do you know that the 20th of each month is "Celebrate MFT Day"? Basically, it's just a day to show your My Favorite Things stamps some love! I hope you'll join us! Use keyword: CelebrateMFT if you upload to SCS.

I stamped the Who's That Girl walking her dogs (from Let's Go for a Walk), then hand-drew the sidewalk and grass. Everything is colored with Copic markers. The cloud images come from the set Hooga Booga. They were a bit of a desperate after-thought, as I had a little catastrophe with my red marker and had some booboos to cover up. Yes, I know she looks like she's holding a cloud in her hand, but trust me, it's way better than a random red blob. LOL! Should I show the before-clouds version (wink)?



Stamps: Let's Go for a Walk (My Favorite Things); Hooga Booga (MFT Presents)
Paper: SU Real Red and Pumpkin Pie, PTI white, DCWV "Citrus" dp
Ink: Versafine Onyx Black
Accessories: Copic markers, clear embossing powder, Spellbinders circle Nestabilities, SU red striped ribbon, foam adhesive, sewing machine

I was going to say how I loved the clouds you added and that was before I read that they were an after thought and a solution. Beautiful card!

Your color blending on those dogs is marvelous. I can never get my pencils or markers to blend like that. I love your card.

Adorable! Your copic coloring is breathtaking, Amy! Love the dimension you've given the clouds, and how they slightly go off of the circle. GREAT job!

Emily said...

Amazingly adorable! I also thought the clouds were a very cute addition and then cracked up when I read they were hiding booboos. You are so talented and creative!
