More samples...

Hi! Here are some more samples from the exciting new line of stamps MFT is doing. The line is called My Favorite Things Presents and these stamps are from Annie LaPointe. I absolutely adore these fabulous floral images. Isn't this tub the cutest!

For the details...I stamped the tub onto shimmery copper paper from The Paper Co. (I get it at Mike's or Jo's) with VersaMark and embossed it with copper ep. I added Platinum Stickles to the shower head, rim and claw feet. I stamped the hydrandreas several times on watercolor paper with Brown Staz-on and colored them with several shades of ink pads (burgandy, ruby red, old olive, and close to cocoa) and a blender pen. For the background of the image, I stamped the SU! Sanded background on Saffron paper and then stamped En Francais over that with Close to Cocoa. I used a fancy stitch on my sewing maching for the inside border and added the chocolate bow and a curvy corner element. Would you like a little tutorial on that, or is it self explanatory?


This is for today's sketch challenge with an image called Chamomile. I just stamped this in Brown Staz-on and colored it with watercolor pencils and a blender pen. I used the En Francais background stamp again on this with some paper I had in my stash. I stamp it with Versamark and highlighted some areas with pastel chalks using a small sponge applicator.

Here are the details again for the release party tonight...
My Favorite Things (http://www.mftstamps.com/) is having a New Release Cocktail Party on Wednesday, June 4 from 9-11 p.m. Eastern time. LOTS of fun (and a surprise release) 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.

Thanks for stamping by!
