MFT & Friends * January Release

Yay! It's release day at My Favorite Things and I'm curious what your favorite thing from this release is.

One new goodie I like a lot is the Kissing Booth stamp and die set. Aren't these critters just adorable?!


I was in the mood for some watercoloring, so I stamped all the images in water resistant ink on watercolor paper. I used a watercolor palette called vintage pastels and that's exactly what my color scheme is. Sadly, the sky turned out a bit dull but it's ok.

First, I colored in everything loosely and added depth and shadows as I went. I added a bit of textured look to the bears head to make it look like fur. I couldn't reach the little nooks of the images with my paint brush that well, so I let everything dry and added the darkest shades with colored pencils. After the coloring was done, I die cut all the pieces and started to arrange them on my super simple background. It's just a piece of watercolor paper with some blue in the upper two thirds and some green for the ground. I adhered the kissing booth with glue and added the other images with foam tape. I finished up my card by stamping a happy little greeting on the grass.


I hope you're joining us on the MFT Blog for a happy and fun celebration. We have some wonderful and talented friends over and so much inspiration you don't want to miss!


Thank you so much for stopping by!
Have a colorful day,
Nicole
