May I Have this Dance?


Yay, MFT teasers for December start today! I have a sample using the newest in the WTG series, May I Have This Dance? You'll also see a couple of fab new die-namics!


Isn't that image just darling? I am in love with this new Skyline Border die-namic, isn't it awesome?! I had big plans for this card, I'd pulled out patterned paper and was going to do a bucket load of layers, but when I saw the image and skyline border on the white card base it just screamed to be left as is! I love the dreamy effect of the buildings surrounding the dancers.

I coloured the image with Copics and the dress has a layer of spica glitter pen. My sentiment was stamped on an adorable Mini Tab - love these!


Inside the card I have used the negative space left from cutting the skyline border to sponge a cityscape. I love this effect!

This month the Guest Designer contest is Play Tag - so I wanted to show you a gift topper tag I made recently, I hope you'll play along with the contest, being a MFT designer for the month is awesome!


I've used the Own Your story set, some distress inks and flowers and a pearl swirl from Zva Creative for a vintage look.


Lots of stamping and over stamping on this tag - it was nice to get back to my stampy roots! The seam binding was hand dyed with distress inks.
