Hi everyone! All of us here at My Favorite Things wish you a Happy World Card Making Day! Maybe your personal style includes coloring with markers, or possibly you enjoy some fresh and clean stamping. Maybe you simply like creating custom elements with our Die-namics dies. Whatever it is that you like to do, we only hope that you get a chance to create something special today!
Sketches are always a great starting point for a little card making, and we have 92 weeks of sketches available as part of our ongoing Wednesday Stamp Club sketch challenge. The first year of sketches is available here: MFT Sketches 1-52 and year two (to date) is here MFT Sketches 53-92. The inspiration for my layout today started with Sketch 23. And then I strayed.
I adore this Pure Innocence Paper Dolls image. Maybe it’s because I liked paper dolls as a child. Or maybe because it’s just cute. :)
After coloring my image with Copics, I added the white dots onto her dress with Copic Opaque White and a toothpick. (I finally bought a fine brush so I can try something other than dots.) The ovals were die-cut using MFT’s Oval STAX Die-namics 1 & 2.
On the inside, I stamped my sentiment and added a strip of Paper Doll Border Die-namics.
Thanks for stopping by today! Now let’s get crafty! :)
