Goin' on a Joy Ride!

Happy Sunday, everyone! Today I have my first MFTeaser for you! This set is called Joy Ride, and it's illustrated by Amanda Baird. I used my new October Afternoon Hometown paper -- love it!! I colored with a combination of Copics and Spica pens. I used the Spica pens on her helmet, gloves, shoes, and also on the headlight, but the photo didn't pick it up very well. I cut her scarf "out of the box" to give it a little movement.

I finished the inside of the card and paper pieced one of the luggage images from the set.

Tip: use a marker or pencils to give your paper pieced images depth and dimension.

Stop by Kim's Blog after 11 am for a list of the designers who have MFTeasers today! All of the new stamps will be available Wednesday, March 3 at 10:00 pm at My Favorite Things!

That's all for today! Thanks so much for the visit! :)

Have a great day!
Christina
