MFT Teasers, Day 6

It’s almost time for the My Favorite Things October release!  Tomorrow night at 10 p.m. EST all the fun new sets and Die-namics will be available!  Only one more day!  :)

Teaser prizes continue so be sure to leave comments on each and every post to increase your chances of winning!  (You can find a list of participating DT here.)

Today we’re sharing samples of the five new Pure Innocence images.  They are all SO cute, I had a hard time deciding which to post today.

I chose Pumpkin Patch Girl. I used Cloud Trio Die-namics for the sentiment, lining each cloud with a chocolate die-cut.  To add dimension, I placed foam boosters beneath the outermost (sentiment) cloud.  Beneath the houndstooth print, I placed a Little Open Scallop Strip.

After piecing her outfit, I added shading with a gray marker.  (Cutting out the pants from that pattern drove me a bit nuts.  I was starting to see it in 3-d.  Do you remember those prints?  The ones you’d stare at for minutes at a time and finally see mountains or a dolphin?  Or a geometric figure?  I wasn’t expecting  anything to pop out of her pants (lol) but the pattern was getting to me.  Maybe I was just tired.)   :)

From a scrap of green cardstock, I cut out tiny leaf-ish shapes, then wrapped wire around a pin and inserted in the pumpkin stem through a small poked hole.  I used tape on the back to secure the wire ends.

On the inside I used a sentiment from another PI set, Li’l Pumpkin.
