MFT & Friends December Release


Hi there!  I am so excited to share that I am part of the MFT & Friends December 2018 Release with My Favorite Things!

My card features the new Forever and Owlways stamp set and the coordinating Forever and Owlways Die-namics along with the new Essential Slanted Sentiment Strips Die-namics.

To create my card I started off with a panel of dark blue cardstock measuring 4" x 5.25".  I used the Cloud Stencil along with some Black Soot Distress Oxide ink to create a cloudy  night sky.  Then I splattered on some metallic gold watercolor.  I stamped and colored the larger branch and the cute owl pair from the Forever and Owlways stamp set and diecut them with the coordinating Forever and Owlways Die-namics.  Then, I stamped a sentiment from the set onto dark blue cardstock and heat embossed it with gold embossing powder before diecutting it with the Essential Slanted Sentiment Strips Die-namics.  I popped everything up with foam tape, and added a few finishing touches to my card including googly eyes to the owls, white pen accents, and a scattering of tiny wooden stars from my stash.


So Happy Together
