MFT January Release Countdown--Day 1

It's the last day of My Favorite Things January Release Countdown!

Have you got your wish lists ready? Get ready to purchase the new release
tomorrow, January 9th at 9PM EST in the MFT Store!

Today I'm sharing a project using a new stencil, an awesome sentiment,
and this month's "free with $60" die.

  After ink distressing watercolor card stock with Distress inks, I wet the 
Full of Heart stencil and placed it on the inked surface and left it on for
about a minute. The result is a reverse stenciled image made with water.

The sentiment was white embossed and the panel was cut with the wonky 
stitched rectangle die. The stitched heart was cut into the sentiment. Three
more hearts were cut and layered and topped with the colored heart.

The panel was adhered to a pink card base and the stacked hearts were
placed in the negative space, matching up the sentiment. The card was
finished off with some clear sequins.

Visit today's Countdown post at My Favorite Things for more peeks at the
new release and don't forget to leave a comment there for a chance to win a
$75 prize. Hope to see you tomorrow for Release Day!
