MFT & FMS

I am certainly not a super star designer, but I did have a CAS design in mind for my MFT Layered Leaves die set.  Figured I may as well enter this year's MFT Card Design Super Star Clean & Simple Genius category.
I began by scribbling Deep, May & Light Green Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers on a small rectangle acrylic block.  I spritzed lightly & "stamped" onto a panel of Bristol cardstock.  I repeated the process a couple times to get the look I wanted.  I die cut the smallest detail leaf in the set from cork paper & laid them in place to see where I wanted the sentiment.  Then I removed the leaves & stamped the sentiment from MFT Thankful Leaves in Versafine Clair Acorn.  The leaves were glued in place & it was done.  It's going to my cousin & his wife, so I decided against any embellishments.  The leaf dies are still available, but the stamp set is retired.  I'm also entering Allsorts & SSS Monday.

I really like the current challenge at FMS.  It made me want to open the IO Berry Branches die set I got in my last order.
I had fun picking out the PTI paper & some green ribbon to go with the branches die cut from a red scrap.  I splattered the card front with watered down Graphite Tattered Angels mist & added Christmas Red Stickles to the berries.  The sentiment from W&W Snowy Holiday was stamped in Versafine Clair Morning Mist.  I'm also entering ABC Christmas & WAW.
