MFT May Blog Hop
My Favorite Things is blog hopping today, so if you haven't come here by way of Frances and you'd like to start at the beginning, the place to go is Kim's blog. If you've already been through the hop so far, what do you think of the peeks?
I've put together a little something with Stephanie Fizer's Owls and Blueberries set, which is just too cute for words! I did my coloring with Copics and Prismacolor pencils and stamped a few extra bluebell sprigs to pop up on foam adhesive. The image circle was cut with Nestabilities and layered onto a green shape cut with Labels 3 Nestabilities. I added some punched borders, some ribbon and hardware, and some paper piercing and called it done.
Next is an out-of-the-box creation using the manicure girl from Girls Day In:
I fancified her robe into a dress, drew in a sparkling new diamond and turned her into Girls Day "In"gaged :D Can't you see her sitting there as her friends line up to check out her big ol' rock? I pulled the sentiment from Essential Sentiments (which, incidentally, happens to be in the Bubble Bin this week). "Dreams Come True," another sentiment in that set, would work well, too. The dress is paper pieced, and the rest is colored with a mixture of Copic markers and Prismacolor pencils. Her diamond sparkles thanks to some Stardust Stickles. I had a lot of fun with this one!
Ready for some MFT scoop? Here's what you need to know for the rest of the week:
