MFT Little Lady

Psssst....Guess what? Guess who gets to be the June Fab Friend over at the MFT Blog? You guessed it - me! :) I have been sitting on this info since December and now that it's here I'm choosing to debut it with this sweet Pure Innocence Ladybug set - which incidentally was chosen for my stamp collection and was completely inspired by this little lady...

This sweet little love bug is my daughter, Ashlynn when she was 3 years old at Halloween ;)

Anyhoo, back to the card shall we? The clouds were made using die cuts from the cloud trio die-namic and then sponged around and I used the Fresh Cut Grass Die-namic to sponge in the grass to complete my scene. This little lady was water coloured with tombow markers and then I added some chalk shadows for extra depth.

It's kind of hard to tell, but at the top of the card on the red polka dot paper, I die cut some scallops and used the Jumbo Scallop Die-namic and then carried on with the red in the buttons.

Thanks for joining me today and I will be back next week with another set from My Favorite Things to share with you :)

I have never seen anyone design cards like you. The designs/layouts are just so stunning. I can never layer someting like that with much success the first time around. Love all the layering and embossing. Your colouring is to die for and I so want to be able to do the same. If you lived near and did classes I would be waiting on your step! Lol. Thanks for being here and sharing. Hugs.
