MFT & Friends * August Release

Hello and welcome to this months MFT & Friends event and August Release Day! We have a bunch of inspiration to share with you.


I love creating fun backgrounds using smaller stamps like on this project. I started by stamping the images  and made sure, they were evenly spread. This may take a while, but I feel like it's worth the extra minute(s). I often start at the bottom and work my way up to the top. In this case, I started with the two pumpkins and the twig. I made sure the images have about the same distance between them. Because I wanted to use watercolor markers, I used watercolor paper and a waterproof ink.


After all the stamping was done, I did my coloring with Faber Castell Watercolor Markers. I just love this part so much, coloring is very realxing to me. Then, I added some Distress Ink to the edges of my panel. It gives the card kind of a warm autumn glow. I cut the panel to size and glued it to a slightly larger piece of white card stock. 

Next, I stamped my sentiment on a scrap piece of white card stock and die cut it with a stitched circle die. I also die cut a slightly larger circle from vellum. Before I adhered the sentiment to the card, I added some twine and tied it to a bow. I adhered the vellum to the card (under the twine) using foam tape and then added the white sentiment circle on top of the twine, using foam tape again. All what was left to do is adding my panel to the card base using foam tape (because of the twine, it would not lye flat using liquid glue). 


We have so much more for you to see. Check out the MFT Blog for loads of inspiration by the Design Team and our friends.

Thanks for stopping by!
Have a wonderful day,
Nicole
