MFT Contest 2

IMG_8607 (611x800)

Another entry for the My Favorite Things Super Designer challenge.   Using the MFT Scattered Bars stencil I lightly sponged through the stencil with MFT Grapesickle Premium Dye Ink  and variegated pressure.  Next step i took the LJD Wildflowers stencil and used some silver embossing paste on the one flower.  I did two of the same flowers at varied heights to draw the eye into the center.  After letting that dry I masked off the flower on the left with inkadinkadoo masking paper. Using my MISTI I stamped the two darker flowers three times rearranging the flowers.  Then I stamped the lighter flower with the mask still in place.  I added a leaf to the bottom by putting a smudge of the Grapesickle ink pad onto my craft mat and picking it up with a wet paint brush.  I extended the stem and filled in the blank spots that didn’t get the pressure when i stamped because of the embossed image.  I pulled out my die from Blue Prints five with the rounded corners and cut the grapesickle card stock.  Next I put some contrast to this with a piece of grape jelly cardstock cut to 4.25 x 5.5 inches.  I rounded the corners with a scalloped scissors to match the die shape of the inner panels.  Blue Prints six was pulled out to create the tag that I stamped with a sentiment from the Wildflowers set.  I took the leaves from one of the smaller flowers and pressed it into a Versamark pad to add a little something to the sentiment tag after embossing it with the silver embossing powder.  Using some ribbon from my stash i crsiss crossed and popped the sentiment over it.  It still looked a bit bare and I pulled out some silver pearls to finish it off.  Thanks MFT for the challenging me to design my own special card.
