MFT Birthday Challenge – Feeling Sentimental

This month’s birthday challenge at MFT is text based only, no images! Initially I thought that was a tough challenge but then the mojo started flowing and the ideas kept coming! This is my first attempt, using MFT Birthday Speech Bubbles in a rainbow of colors. I added strips of diagonal  striped paper from MFT’s […]

Batty Without You

Not *exactly* a Halloween card, though the timing is fitting! This vampire cutie is from a Close to My Heart set called Creepy Creatures, which was easy to color up with Prismacolor pencils as most of the image stamped black. I used 2 sizes of Inverted Scalloped Circle dies from Spellbinders to cut a black […]

MFT Summer Camp Day 1 & MFT Color Challenge 121

Take 2 on Day 1 of MFT’s Summer Camp! This is another fully watercolored card, painted with the 36 color set of Gansai Tambi’s. I need to use these more often cause I just saw they now offer a 48 pan set but I refuse to buy it (yet) with so much paint left in […]
