We're getting close! The weekend is over (sad face as it was the last weekend of summer for us here - school starts for my oldest munchkins this week!) and all the new September goodies will be available Tuesday night at 10pm EST!
Make sure to check out MFT's blog post for all of today's sneak peek info - which you definitely should b/c they're all coordinating and there is a TON of inspiration from the other DT members!
I actually made 2 cards for today - and again I could have made more had I more time! Though I was making quite the mess and had water and ink splatters everywhere including on myself LOL - totally worth it though:
Laina's new Soda Pop stamp set and Soda Pop bottles Die-namics is pretty much a must-have in my opinion - plus the other dies that coordinate. They're just FUN!
I used MFT's dye inks and had some fun sponging different colors over the new Concentric Circle Grid stencil. I then smushed some of the ink pad onto it's lid and picked it up with a paintbrush loaded with water and splattered it onto the card.
The bottle I die cut from white card stock then sponged the same inks onto it, then splattered just clean water onto it to create the effect you see above. Once it was dry I stamped the citrus image from the set onto it.
I finished off the inside with one of the sentiments from the set and the same citrus image stamped in the 4 dye inks I used on the front of the card.
I was having so much fun I had to make a second card - this time I substituted greens for the oranges, changed the direction and used a different sentiment and symbol.
It's pretty cool how MFT's dye inks react with water like this - and normally I would stamp the sentiment with their Hybrid inks b/c it's crisper plus it won't react with water but I just made sure the card front was fully dry before stamping the sentiment with the same dye ink.
I finished the inside with another sentiment from the set and stamped the star and that was it!
