Goin' Places



As promised here is a peek at my favorite set from the new release at My Favorite Things going on tonight. Here are the deets...


My Favorite Things (http://www.mftstamps.com/) is having a New Release Cocktail Party on Wednesday, May 7 from 9-11 p.m. Eastern time. Lots of fun is planned including finding out how YOU can be the next MFT Guest Designer. Head over to the MFT forum on http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/ to find out all the details and we hope to see you there on Wednesday night.
The image is from Goin' Places. This set is so stinkin' cute, I can't stand it. It has a cityscape, luggage and a banner that can be added behind the little prop plane. The card is standard size 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 . That super cute houndstooth paper is from a MFT digital paper pack. You choose the paper you like place your order and you get a file ready for immediate printing on your computer. I was a little hesitant to use this product, to be honest with you. Was it going to be the quality that I like, would the printing look good? Can I tell you now that I am completely hooked, I mean getting to print the paper you want at anytime. How can you beat that. I printed the pattern on white cardstock. But I was thinking later it would have been wonderful on cream stock too! For the girl I stamped the image 2 times on watercolor paper and once on decorative paper for her dress. The map was colored with ink pads and a blender pen and my one of my 5 Copic markers for the flesh color. My friend Carrie asked from the last post which color, it is YR000 Silk Sketch marker. The buckles were done with 3/8" brown grograin ribbon and eyelets set with a crop a dile. I then added some stiching to give it a little more texture. Well I think that's it. I am a little excited about the release tonight, so if I missed anything, let me know.
Thanks for stamping by!
