Adorable Adventures * MFT Countdown (5)

Hello and welcome to the first day of our MFT August Release Countdown. Only five more days until the release. Let's start with the newest Birdie Brown stamp sets. This little girl from the Adorable Adventures just stole my heart and there are many more cute images coming ;-)


I started by stamping all the images I wanted to use on this card. I used Versafine Onyx Black ink, as it is waterproof, on watercolor paper. Now, I was able to use my Faber Castell Watercolor Markers without having to worry about smearing ink. This ink is my go-to for watercoloring. I got inspired by the color combo of the Happy Trails Paper Pad but ended up not using any patterned paper on my project. Still, I really like that dark blue and the red with all the nature colors.


After the coloring was done, I cut everything out using the coordinating dies. Then, I did the background. It is a quite simple background to make but I wanted it to be quite simple so the detailed stamped images wouldn't get lost. I did some easy ink blending for the sky and the grass and added a die cut grass border for a little dimension and to have something to tuck the mountains behind.

Now all that was left to do was assemble the card. I love moving around all the pieces until I feel it looks perfect. Yes, sometimes this takes up more time than planned but it still is a fun thing to do for me. I stamped a soft blue greeting on the sky and my card was done.


Feel free to hop over to the MFT Blog to see more new goodies that will be available soon! We have another Birdie Brown set to share, cute paper and fun and versatile clouds for your backgrounds.

Thanks for stopping by!
Have a happy day,
Nicole

  1. I had to look at a few others samples but you were the only one to give her a headband. So fun. I saw that and thought you could draw in the head gear for braces. Thanks for sharing your talent.

  7. A perky little kid, almost feels like she'll run off of the card any minute. What fun. Your pencil coloring is really pretty, love the highlights and shading. No pattern paper needed on this one... although it is really pretty.
