August MFTeasers, Day 3

Welcome to Day 3 of August previews with My Favorite Things!   Today the team is sharing samples of the five new Pure Innocence images — Caramel Apple, Karate Boy, Karate Girl, Sunflower Girl and Poppy.


I used my favorite of the new PI’s, Karate Boy.  It’s my favorite mostly because I *love* this sentiment!  🙂

He was so quick to color.  Skin, black belts and trim, a little gray for shadow and the lightest blue for background.  (Now that I look at this again, I should have left the trim white.  Oops.)

On the inside, I pieced the sentiment, using “What’s” from the Popping By set and “Kickin’” from the Karate Boy set.

Here are the details about the upcoming release:

  • The release will take place at 10 p.m. EST on August 2nd.  You can attend the release party from 8 – 10 p.m. EST here in the forum for fun, games and prizes.

    • Hi. I’m sorry, I no longer have this stamp or the football boy. Have you checked Ebay or the sell/trade forum in Splitcoast stampers? There may also be other ideas there as to where to look. I hope you find them!
