I am possibly coming out of my ‘break‘..maybe..hopefully..not so sure..
But until I am completely sure, here are a couple of cards I made before my ‘break‘ and today..
I made this card before going on my break for the MFT Sketch and Color Challenges. And ended up not submitting for either. But, I did want to publish it. So here it is..! 🙂
I used all MFT products on this! All the stamping is done using MFT Hybrid black ink and stamps from My Favorite Things Top Dog and Cat-itude. The grass is MFT Fresh Cut Grass. For coloring, I used Mustard Seed, Shabby Shutters and Tumbled Glass distress inks for the scene and Pumice Stone & Frayed Burlap for the cute doggie. Of course, everything (other than the grass) is fussy cut, since I didn’t invest in the dies.
The MFT challenges are long over, but there are a couple others I am submitting this to – Seize the Birthday: Anything Goes, Addicted to Stamps #191: Anything Goes and Timout Challenge #55: Celebrations with optional twist of die cutting/fussy cutting. I did make this card keeping a birthday celebration in mind, just in case it is not clear! 🙂
For my second card – I just made this today. 🙂 I really struggle with CAS cards and critter cards – making a CAS critter card was a ridiculous challenge for me!! But, I am quite happy with the outcome! 🙂
The birds are from Mama Elephant Oh Happy Birds, the flowering branch is Purple Onion Designs Blossoming Perch, and the clouds are from Paper Smooches Spreading Sunshine – all stamped using My Favorite Things Hybrid black ink. I watercolored the birds using Fossilized Amber distress ink, the branch and clouds using Zig Clean Color Real Brush pens. I then fuzzy cut the birds and clouds, cut the panel using Simon Says Stamp Stitched Rectangles, stamped the sentiment from Paper Smooches Sentiment Sampler. I then foam mounted the panel on the card base and adhered the birds and clouds using foam dots. A simple card, but it really tough for me to not add a lot of color in the background…oh, the itching fingers!! 😀
Thanks for stopping by! 🙂
