MFTeaser: Jolinne in My Garden



Today, My Favorite Things is previewing two new Jolinne sets. I've used Jolinne in My Garden for today's card. The images are stamped on Watercolor Wonder Cardstock and colored with Tombow watercolor markers and a water brush. I did a tiny bit of masking to create the flowerpot trio. The background paper is an older pattern from My Mind's Eye's Abbey Road line. You can't see them well here, but the clouds in the sky were inspired by a children's picture book my daughter was reading yesterday. She's learned that when I start staring intently at the illustrations (especially sky and grass), I'm "studying" the pros. Sometimes I have to nick her books for a day or two and take them down into my craft room. They're perfect for coloring inspiration!

Speaking of inspiration, be sure to visit Kim at the MFT blog anytime after 11 am today for links to all the designers who are posting teasers today. And don't forget, our release party is tomorrow (June 2) from 8-10 pm EST in the MFT Forum at Splitcoast. Hope to see you there!



As always, thanks so much for visiting!

Such gorgeous coloring Amy! Love your pro-inspired sky - though I think now people are going to be studying YOU and copying your pro-work!

Neat to see the difference in the natural light photo and the lit photo too. Beautiful all around.

I always thought argyle is a pure "male" pattern, but now I see it makes a perfect backround for cute girly cards too :-) You always surprise, Amy!

Your coloring techniques are always so varied but always with professional results. I don't think I could get my Tombow marker coloring to look like yours!
