MFT October Release Countdown--Day 2

It's two days until My Favorite Things October Release! All new products will
go on sale Tuesday, October 3rd at 9PM EST in the MFT Store!

Today I'm sharing two projects, the first using the gorgeous Handwritten Holiday
sentiment set.

The font on this sentiment set is just gorgeous, and you really don't need anything
 else to let the sentiments shine. I ink distressed a watercolor panel with several
colors of Distress inks then went over with the Drifts & Hills Stencil to give the
background some dimension.

I spattered water over the surface, then cut out the panel with the Mod Rectangle 
STAX when it was dried. The sentiment was silver embossed, together with a few
snowflakes. The panel was then adhered to a Stone Gray card base.

My second card features Nice List from Pure Innocence.

The largest Mod Rectangle STAX was covered with patterned paper and hinged
with another piece to form the card base. A smaller Mod Rectangle piece was
adhered to the card, then topped with a Merry Christmas Circle.

The Pure Innocence list maker was stamped and colored with Copics, except
for her dress which was paper pieced. She was grounded with an oval shadow 
and I added two bears from my stash. A sentiment was stamped inside.

Visit today's countdown post at My Favorite Things for more peeks and inspiration
