MFT August Release Countdown--Day 1



It's the last day of the countdown to the August release at My Favorite Things.
Got your wish lists ready? All products will go on sale tomorrow at 10pm EST!

Halloween is right around the corner, and today I'm sharing a card
that came together quickly, thanks to the new Die-namics Spooky House dies.


I started off by white embossing the sentiment on watercolor card stock, then ink
distressed with a mix of Distress and dye inks, and spattered water over the surface.
The hill was cut with the Die-namics Double Stitched Oval STAX and adhered to the
panel, together with the house and flying bats.


The panel was cut with the stitched rectangle from Blueprints 24, and mounted
on a black card base. The final touch was to add the glowing eyes on the bat
with a white pigment ink pen.

You know the drill, right? Visit today's countdown post at MFT for links to participating
designers and leave a comment there for your chance to win a $75 prize to shop
at the MFT Boutique! See you tomorrow for the New Product Launch!
