I Pick You!

I have two cards that I made today, the first is for the My Favorite Things Card Design Superstar challenge, I'm bringing my fifth and final card, the challenge has been so much fun, I'm already feeling the let down that I can't make more cards for it!  Both cards are made with the new MFT Birdie Brown Harvest Mouse set.

I have seen some beautiful water color techniques lately and  decided to give it a try, for this one I used 3 MFT ink pads: Sno Cone, Tangy Orange, and Jellybean Green and wiped them on wax paper in a row then spritzed with water and put my water color paper on top.  The problem I found with the wax paper, is that the ink eventually came through, so next time I will use a better surface, but I was very happy with the results and it goes perfectly with my MFT Chocolate and Tangy Orange cardstock.  I cute out the background with my old standby, the stitched square from the MFT Die-namics Blueprints 8 and stamped with the MFT Gingham BG.  

All this sweetness and cuteness was colored with Copic markers, cute out with the BB Harvest Mouse Die-namics and raised with foam tape.

The tag was made with the medium die in the Die-namics Stitched Fishtail Frames set, the inside piece was cut in water color paper, and I added a couple leaves from the Die-namics Falling Leaves set, tied with a MFT twine bow.

Here's the inside of the card, I used the largest die from the new Fishtail Frames set.

Stamps: My Favorite Things - Birdie Brown Harvest Mouse set, Gingham BG.
Other supplies: MFT twine, foam tape, Copic markers.
Ink:  MFT (Tangy Orange, Sno Cone, Jellybean Green, Hybrid Black Licorice).
Paper: MFT Tangy Orange and Chocolate, Recollections Black, water color paper.

For the second card, I participated in the Featured Stamper challenge on Splitcoaststampers, our FS is Ann who has a wonderful gallery who is so creative, I chose this card of hers to CAS, it reminded me of the MFT Die-namics Stitched Cover-Up Companion Vertical, which I hadn't had a chance to use yet.

I chose MFT Jellybean Green and Persimmon cardstock for this one and stamped the bg with the MFT Garden Flourish BG, the Stitched Cover-Up was stamped with the MFT Fine Check BG, and of course, there's a water color background made with the same technique as above, adding some MFT Lavender Fields dye ink for the sky.

Once again all of the critters were colored with Copic markers.
