Hurrah--I finished MFT Summer School & I'm getting my cards posted before the deadline this time!
Day 4 is Ombre.
I used one of my first MFT stamp sets called Thankful Leaves. To begin, I inked an acrylic block with Distress Inks abandoned coral, spiced marmalade & carved pumpkin, spritzed with water & "stamped" onto a white card front. I used a wet brush to blend the inks & then "stamped" again with the inked acrylic block & less water for more texture. I added some water drops, but could have done without that step.
Next I used the same inks to stamp the leaves & Delicata Golden Glitz for the veins. The sentiment from the same set was stamped in DI gathered twigs & the gold ink. Finished off with gold sequins.
Day 5 is Rainbow.
Oh boy did I have fun with one of my newest MFT dies called Block Happy Birthday! So fun & easy to make a rainbow with Copic markers. After die cutting the words I mounted the panel to a super sparkly glitter paper & used foam tape to mount it to a small black card. Couldn't get a picture to show the sparkle, but it honestly doesn't need any embellishments.
Now for the plus in my post title--MFT Birthday Project, CAS Birthday.
Had to use the rainbow letters before they got lost--haha! I stacked them 3 high & added Stickles to the colored letters. I just wasn't happy with quite so much white space, but I didn't want to add any embellishments. Thankfully, the letters were spaced far enough from the bottom for me to add 3 scored lines above & below. Really amazing the difference those lines make. Surprisingly, I actually captured the sparkle from the Stickles in this close up.
