It's the last Wednesday of the month, and guess what that means? It's VIP day at My Favorite Things! For one day only - today - you'll have a chance to purchase one of June's new sets, Let's Picnic, a whole week early. It comes as part of the MFT VIP Package, which includes a bunch of other fun products, as well as PERKS, like an extra free set and being able to post pre-release teasers during next week's release party. Want to be a VIP?? Of course!! Hurry, quantities are limited. Last month's VIP package sold out quickly (like within a few hours).
In other MFT news, Candice has put together this week's How'd They Do That tutorial. She's the Copic queen, and she'll be sharing tips on identifying your light source and adding realistic shading, using your Copics (or any other coloring method). Also, we're down to the final two MFT Idol contestants!! You can see their awesome creations HERE, and then cast your vote before 10 pm today. (Be sure to read the voting instructions!) Congratulations to all of the MFT Idol contestants, and best of luck to 20something and Mrs. Mac!
I've stamped my image from Let's Picnic on MFT's Perfect Paper Panels and then colored with both Copics and Prismacolors. The blanket is paper pieced. I layered the image onto a combination of papers from K&Co's Wild Raspberry die-cut mat pad. These papers are die-cut with various decorative edges, such as the oversize Top Note-style die on the background panel. I wanted to keep that shape intact, so I made my card extra large at 5" x 7". Love this size! The cheese board and wine bottle are some of the wonderful little extras in this set.
Thanks for stopping by!
