MFT Blog Hop and Shop!

Welcome to the My Favorite Things blog hop and shop event! I have had a lot of fun this past week showing you all the upcoming goodies for the release tonight.

I have quite a special card to show you tonight....Do you ever find it really hard to make sympathy cards when you need them? I really do, so it is nice to have a stash going and the "Clearly Sentimental about Sympathy" set has REALLY GREAT sentiments! I paired it up with another release this month "Inspired by The Beach". I really let my copic airbrush system do the work on this card. It is one layer with a brown card stock frame popped up over top.

I just used a post it note to mask off a horizon line and a little circle punch to mask off a sun, then I sprayed the sunset portion using Y21,YR14, YR18.
I flipped my mask around and sprayed the water portion while loosely covering the sand and chairs with post it notes. I used B00,B02,B34,B37. The water gets gradually darker towards the horizon line. I airbrushed the sand with the E40's and colored the adirondack chairs with the E30's.
The stamped shell and sentiment are on the inside of this card.....like I said.....beautiful sentiments in this sympathy set.

Now I will send you on your way to Karen's Blog!  I just LOOOVE her style and I'm sure she has something neat to see! Enjoy the hop!
