MFT January Release Countdown--Day 2

It's just two more days until My Favorite Things January Release!
Have you got your wish lists ready?

Today I'll be sharing two cards. The first features Diamond Die-namics, a set
of gemstone dies in three sizes. I chose the largest diamond and die cut vellum
from the solid die, and the outline from gold glitter card stock.

I wet a piece of watercolor card stock with water, then scribbled some
Zig markers over it to create a rainbow background. The panel was cut with
the new Wonky Stitched Rectangle die, and I adhered the diamond and sequins
after it was dried.

The sentiment was white embossed on a black banner stripand adhered to the panel.
The panel was then adhered to a Grout Gray card base.

Next up is a Valentine for that science geek on your list. Undeniable Chemistry
features protons, neutrons, atoms, and assorted molecules that I white embossed
on watercolor card stock, then ink distressed with Distress inks and spattered with H2O.

After the piece was dried, I die cut the panel with the rectangle element from
Blueprints 24. The sentiment was white embossed on a black banner and stapled
to the panel. I finished off the card with a few black hearts.
