MFT May Release Countdown Day 5



Are  you ready to meet My Favorite Things May Release?

Day 5 begins with some new, original shaker elements--a Martini and a Margarita--
with a fun set of Spirited Sentiments to match.



I began by "smooshing" yellow and green Distress inks on watercolor card stock,
then cut it out with a stitched rectangle die. The martini shape was cut through,
and the outer glass shape was cut from Stone Gray card stock.


I filled the pouch with some ice cube elements and clear jewels, then adhered
the panel to a Limelight card base. I stamped the sentiment and added the
"Cheers" that was cut from glittery green card stock.


The second martini card was done the same as the margarita card. I ink smooshed
pink and orange Distress inks on watercolor card stock, and cut the martini shape
and filled the pouch with clear jewels. After stamping the sentiment, I added the
"Cheers" that was cut from glittery silver card stock.

release and don't forget to leave a comment there for a chance to win a $75 prize!
