MFT Previews, Day 2 – Bless Your Nest

Welcome back!  We’re on to Day 2 of March previews with My Favorite Things!

Teaser prizes continue so be sure to leave comments as you look! You can find direct links to all participating DT HERE.  Each day, two prize vouchers are held by two members of our design team.  You’ll have all week to comment on each of the posts and all winners will be posted on Kim’s blog on Tuesday, March 6th around 7:30pm.

Today we’re previewing Inspired by Birds, Inspired by Butterflies and Flopsey Goes Camping.

Today I’ve used Inspired by Birds along with our new Mini Monarch Border Die-namics.

After coloring with Copics, I sponged all the edges with Ranger’s Brushed Corduroy Distress ink and then distressed the edges just a bit.

I kept the inside simple, stamping the image and sponging the edges using the distress ink.

Here are the details about the upcoming release:

  • You can attend the New Release Party on March 6th from 8-10 PM EST here in the MFT forum where you can enjoy fun, games and PRIZES!
