Thinking of You * MFT Countdown (3)

Hello and welcome to day three of our MFT May Release Countdown. We're half way to the big day and we have more fun new products to share with you.

My first card features these wonderful hummingbirds. I thought it would be fun to color them with rainbow colors :-)


I stamped the birds on alcohol marker friendly ink and colored them in with Spectrum Noir markers. As I often do, I added details with colored pencils. If you really sharpen them, you can add fun texture to your images like I did with the orange on the yellow bird. 

I added a soft blue background with a cloud stencil and some Distress Ink. I did not have to mask off the birds, because the stencil would automatically cover them but I was careful when applying the ink, I used a very light hand. 

Next, I die cut my panel with a stitched rectangle die and stamped my sentiment with black ink. Originally, I had planned to make this a one-layer card but I felt something was missing, so I added some stitched clouds at the bottom. 


And now for my second card. This is super simple to recreate because the stamps add a delicate and beautiful look to your card without much additions needed. I did plan this layout, so that my sentiment and the butterflies would end up in the right spot.

I went for a pastel color palette and started by stamping the butterflies with the lighter shades of my palette. I then stamped the delicate details on top with a darker shade. I felt like they were super easy to align. Next, I added the small bodies with an even darker shade. 

I stamped the sentiment and stamped some light gray greenery. This way, I could give the card a bit more interest but without loosing the soft and light look. For a finishing touch, I added some glitter dots and stripes to the butterflies bodies and wings. You can see some of them in the picture but sadly not how sparkly they are.



I hope you got inspired. We have more inspiration waiting for you at the MFT Blog!

Thanks for stopping by!
Have a beautiful day,
Nicole
