MFT May 2019 Release Countdown Day 4

It's Day 4 of MFT's May Release Countdown! This month's Birdie Brown is
You Bring Out the Sunshine. I decided to give my Copics a break and colored 
her with Prismacolor pencils on kraft card stock.

I stamped her with brown ink on Desert Storm card stock then colored her with
colored pencils. When the coloring was complete, and the stamp was still on the
door of the Misti, I inked it up and stamped her once again to darken the outline.
Grass was drawn on the bottom to ground her.

I prepared a card base by stamping the All Lined Up background stamp on Desert
Storm card stock with Kraft dye ink. The little girl was cut with the scallop rectangle
die then popped up on the base. I borrowed a butterfly from Adorable Elephants and
adhered it on the edge of the panel, then finished off with the stamped sentiment.

Be sure to check out what participating team members are sharing from the
May Release and leave a comment on today's post at the MFT blog. You could be
the random winner of a $75 prize. Hope to see you tomorrow!

  6. Such a sweet the background you've used. tfs

  7. Love every little detail! You really captured her sweetness!

  8. This is so sweet, Donna! The great choice of the color card base (and the panel) for the color pencils. (a little lighter than Kraft, right?) Double-stamping of the outline is effective for the clean and clear look.
    Your pretty pencil coloring, the added butterfly, the scallop rectangle panel, and the background stamping all enhance the cuteness!
