A Double Challenge and New MFT!


Hello! It's been a busy day! I spent most of it in my garden -- planting, weeding, and mulching. I finally sat down to make a card this afternoon, and I decided to play catch-up and combine this week's Color Challenge and Sketch Challenge at SCS. I didn't have to think too much about what image to use, since I got my order from My Favorite Things today! I really love the new My Favorite Things Presents! line. The florals are beautiful yet still have the whimsy that MFT is famous for.

To create the image panel, I stamped the image in Basic Black ink and watercolored with my Aquapainter and inks. I stamped Tres Chic on the cardbase in Regal Rose ink, stamping off once before stamping on the cardstock. For the other two layers I used different patterns of So Saffron Prints, from the 6x6 Prints Sampler. All the edges were sponged with Regal Rose ink. I added some brads and ribbon, and that's it!

Tomorrow is Friday already! I can't believe another week has flown by! I need to get my Father's Day projects finished (started, really), plus my anniversary is coming up Monday. Lots to do! I hope you'll stop back -- thanks so much for visiting today! :)

Stamps: Chamomile (MFT), Tres Chic (SU!) Ink: Basic Black, So Saffron, Regal Rose, Real Red, Old Olive (SU!) Cardstock: So Saffron, Regal Rose, Real Red, watercolor paper (SU!) Paper: 6x6 Prints Sampler Other: Aquapainter, Real Red brads, Regal Rose 5/8" grosgrain (SU!); Red dotted organdy (May Arts); sponge, dimensionals

Hi Christina!
I'm a "little" behind on my blog reading. I just saw your big announcement about MFT Ambassador...Congratulations to you!!!

The white around your Chamomile really pops it off the card...I like it a lot :)
