Scene Building with Die-namics - Video!

Hello! It's time for another fun Creative Challenge with the MFT design team!

This month, we are focusing on creating scenes with our MFT goodies. I have two cards for you today, using two of the newest Pure Innocence girls. I also have a video to share!

My first card uses I Wheelie Like You.

I coloured the image with copics before cutting her out and placing her in her own little scene.

I have a video for you today on how I like to design my scenes when using Die-namics.

Watch full size on You Tube here.

You'll notice that I added some extra colour to the tree, using a Hot Fudge ink pad. You can find my previous video on that simple technique here.

I really wanted to use Grape Jelly as the colour for the small pennant, but didn't have any cardstock in that colour, so I simply cut it in white and pressed it into my inkpad.

I just love that picket fence!

Inside my card I stamped the image again in Grape Jelly, adding a sentiment and a strip of leftover grass. I like to keep the insides of my scene cards quite flat as the front has lots of dimension.

My second card features the new PI - Little Gardener.

I've used lots of wonderful background stamps on this card to add interest and whimsy to my design.

I think my favourite thing about this card is the tree stamped with hearts from Hearts and Stitches! For this card I used the Woodgrain Fence and Teardrop Tree, along with the Grassy Edges. I've used the wonky scallop at the base of my card as a "dirt" layer.

I have very lightly shadow stamped the PI image inside the card, adding more fence and grass to finish it all off.

Please head over to the MFT Blog to see all the amazing creations the designers have come up with today!
