Flopsey Celebrates MFT Day



The 20th of the month brings Celebrate MFT Day, so come on and join the MFT fans in getting your My Favorite Things stamps inky today! I'm working with one of the new April sets, Flopsey's Flowers. He is so adorable holding this bouquet of flowers, and his expression looks just sheepish enough that he could be trying to beg forgiveness. I colored with Copics and Prismacolors on MFT's new Perfect Paper Panels, and can I just say, what I've been hearing about this paper is true - it is exceptional! It's super smooth, super thick, and the copics and Prismacolors blend like a dream! The dps are all from the Penny Lane Tiny Dancer collection by My Mind's Eye. For the corner treatments, I just wrapped a short length of SU's Certainly Celery twill (from the recent Sale-A-Bration) around the corner, then used a piece of burlap string to secure a Chocolate Chip button to the celery ribbon.

And the inside looks like this:



Thanks for stopping by! Hope you'll give your MFT stamps a little love today, too!

When I see a bunny stamp, I immediately think Easter. I need lessons on thinking outside the box (hate that term, though). This one's a beaut. I hope it wasn't specifically for someone.
