Tuesday with Toni: MFT Christmas sELFies
Are those of you in the US looking forward to Thanksgiving and for some of you a 4-day weekend? In my case, a 4-day crafting weekend. Be still my heart!
Let's get this crafting mega week started off right with a couple of cute cute cute cards using MFT Christmas sELFies, the MFT Peace, Love and Joy Stencil, and the MFT Polaroid Shaker Frame.
I sponged Distress Oxides through the MFT Peace, Love and Joy Stencil--the first using only Peacock Feathers and the other using Peacock Feathers, Wilted Violet, Picked Raspberry, and Mustard Seed rainbow style.
I stamped all of the images with a Copic-friendly ink and colored them with Copics.
I love how the background of the Santa and reindeer images matches Peacock Feathers so well. Notice how the background image was stamped and masked before sponging the stencil. It's a good way to keep the layers down for mailing.
The snowmen image on the second card used fewer Copics, of course. Snowmen, yeti, polar bears, and penguins are my go-to quick color images for the holidays.
I did add some paper-pieced scarves to the snowmen using Doodlebug Designs Christmas Magic 6x6 Paper. I chose those papers after I stenciled the background. How cool is that matchy matchness?
