MFT Previews, Day 6 – You’re Smokin’!

It’s Pure Innocence preview day with My Favorite Things!  We have five adorable new sets to share…Firefighter Girl, Firefighter Boy, Purrfect, Blowing Bubbles and Violin Girl.

I chose to use this sweet Firefighter Girl.  I created longer banners using Mix & Match Banners Die-namics and Joanne’s tutorial found in THIS post.  The flourishes (flames) on the sentiment tab are from our new Finishing Flourishes set.  Along the bottom I used two strips of our new Monarch Border Die-namics.  I love the look of this border layered.

After coloring with Copics, I used a clear glaze pen to add a reflective shine to the coat stripes and emblem on the helmet.  The string tied around the sentiment tab was dyed to match using a Copic.

On the inside, I stamped the word “smokin” a second time, just for emphasis, highlighted it with an E02 Copic and stamped the partial silhouette along with more “flames” from Finishing Flourishes.

Here are the details about the upcoming release:
