MFT December Release Countdown--Day 2

It's just two days until My Favorite Things December Release Countdown!
Have you got your wish lists ready? Are they getting longer?

Today I'm sharing more cuteness with Sweet Safari, a whimsical set of safari
animals. I chose the lion--since I'm a Leo--and colored him with Copics
then die cut him with the matching dies, sold separately. 

For the background, I masked off a rectangle with Post It tape, and ink distressed
with two colors of dye inks, then spattered it with water. I die cut Leafy Greenery
from watercolor card stock, then painted it with Peerless watercolors.

I spattered some watered down green ink over the surface of the card before adhering
the greenery and popping up the lion. The card was finished off with the fun sentiment.

 Don't forget to visit today's post at the MFT blog, for more peeks at the new
release, and leave a comment there for your chance to win a $75 prize!
Thanks for stopping by. See you tomorrow for the final countdown day!
