MFT December Release Countdown--Day 1

Today is the final day of My Favorite Things December Release Countdown!
All new products go on sale tomorrow at 10PM EST in the MFT Store.

Today I'm sharing a new background stamp--Watercolor Stripes. Watercoloring
is still a hot trend and I wanted to create a fun, colorful background.

I used three Distress inks--Picked Raspberry, Mustard Seed, and Peacock
Feathers--inked up the stamp, then spritzed the surface with water
and stamped it on watercolor card stock. After it was dried, I cut out a panel
with the rectangle element from Blueprints 24 and adhered it to a top folding
Black Licorice card base.

I stamped the elephant from Sweet Safari onto watercolor card stock with
Black Licorice hybrid ink and colored him with Copics. I stamped and cut out
an extra ear and popped it up with foam tape for a bit of dimension and added
some highlights with a white pigment pen. The sentiment was stamped with
black ink, and I added a few black hearts from my stash of die cuts.

You know the drill, right? Visit today's post at the MFT blog and leave a comment
there for a chance to win a $75 prize, and see what the other participating
designers have to share.

New Product Launch!
