MFT Blog Hop!

Welcome to Februarys' official blog hop and shop event for My Favorite Things!
If you have traveled here from Melody's blog you are traveling the right blog hop path. If you are a regular visitor of mine you will want to start at the beginning of the hop....which is KIM! Make sure you comment along the way as there are blog goodies being doled out somewhere on the hop!
When I received February's releases this was the very first image I just HAD to stamp and then I saved it all the way till today to show it to you. I just LOVE all the wide open spaces to color on these "Jolinne" images from MFT! To have the room to show pretty shading and blending just makes my heart sing! I paired this sweet fairy up with Melissa Frances products (paper, ribbon and pearl). Rounded the corners and sewed my finished image on.
Here is a close shot so that you can see the detail. I will be showing a video upcoming sometime this month on how to color skin with copics....I had a lot of people stop and ask me about that at CHA.
Fun little detail shot of her wings. I stamped the image twice. Once on card stock that I colored and then again on vellum. I cut out the vellum wings and attached them to my image. I went over them with a mint spica pen and created a swirl design as well.
I love that when you look at her wings the color from underneath is softened....



I also wanted to let you know about the "Cherry on Top" promotion!

Cherry on Top Reward: This reward is for our most loyal MFT fans!
*When you purchase 7 full-sized stamp sets ($15.95 or $17.95 price point), on top of earning the Triple Scoop set of the month, you'll also choose ANY set on the site for FREE.

Simply add the "Cherry on Top" product to your cart and specify the set of your choice in the comments section of your order.
(Two $9 sets count as one full-sized set, so you can mix and match sets of different price points to reach your desired reward level.)
*If your Cherry on Top reward set is out of stock at the time your order is filled, you will be sent a gift voucher for the amount of the set you chose.


Well, you are nearly at the end of the hop....inspired?! I know I am!
Now you need to go and visit a girl that I would consider the "cherry on top" for MFT!
Go and see what awesome creation MEL has come up with!
