Make a Wish

 

Welcome! Today marks the start of Teasers from My Favorite Things for the amazing May release. There are some unique and fun things coming out this month, you're going to love them!



My card today features a new Pure Innocence image, the latest Blueprints set and a new Die-namic I fell in love with right away!

Be sure to stop by the MFT blog for all the links to sneak peeks, info about our NEW designer, and news on how you can win some amazing PRIZES! The new release will happen on May 7th - mark your calendar!

For this card I started by stamping the dots from Distressed Backgrounds in Berrylicious ink on Berrylicious cardstock.

The little cutie was stamped on watercolour paper and coloured with watercolour pencils using a method I think of as "washed out watercolouring" - if you'd like a video on this simple effect, please let me know! I was going for a very soft focus look so pencils worked better than copics.



The hello is from the new Happy Hellos Die-namics- I LOVE this set! I cut my hello from Blu Raspberry cardstock and covered it with Crystal Stickles.

All the other dies, except for the base layer come from the fab Blueprints 3 set. I can't wait to experiment more with this fantastic die set!


Inside my card I've repeated the background and some of the Blueprints 3 Elements. I also shadow stamped the girl in Pink Lemonade ink.
