Oh these release days are just flying by! I've had a CRAZY week (don't ask LOL!) and am still trying to find some time (maybe it's under the couch with the random children clothing, toys and other things I won't mention here that I discovered the other day....) to really PLAY with these soon-to-be-released MFT goodies. The ideas really are starting to come back! I was in the mall today with my kids and saw some cell phone cases and card ideas started popping in my head - y'all will understand how happy that makes me! I have struggled so much with the creative mojo and it's starting to come back!
So on that happy note - go check out MFT's blog post with all the videos (courtesy yours truly) and sneak peeks and links to the fabulous DT member's blog posts.
I am still playing with watercolour - and again if I'd had the time I'd have made at least one more card - but even getting this one done was a struggle LOL. It was just one thing after another and now I'm literally multitasking and trying to get this post typed up *right* before it goes live and *right* before Gavin wakes up and freaks out b/c he's hungry (any second now...!!!):
I used the new Etched Flower Background (I predict this one will sell out FAST - it's a beautiful background and if you've been seeing what the DT has been creating with it you know you want it!) and heat embossed it onto watercolour card stock with detail white embossing powder.
Yeah I'm still playing with watercolour - it's always different so it never feels monotonous. I even used the same ink pads I'd used on yesterday's card (the supplies were still sitting out b/c of course I hadn't had a chance to clean up) - but this time achieved a much more subtle effect.
I applied a clean water wash to the watercolour paper after embossing the background, then smushed the various ink pads onto a plastic pallet and picked up the colors with a wet watercolour brush. I ended up using quite a bit of water and heavily saturating the paper in order to move the colors around.
For the sentiment I used the new Label Maker Sentiments stamp set along with the new Label Tape Die-namics dies.
