MFT Best Times

This is the first year I have plucked up enough courage to enter my cards in to the My Favorite Things 2018 Card Design Superstar. This year I thought 'WHY NOT??'

So here is my entry into the Coloring Virtuoso Category:

II have never used masking tape to mask off images and create one large image before, so this was new to me. (I usually stamp them out separately, color, fussy cut and stack them onto the card). This was a lot more difficult than I thought, and I made a couple of mistakes, but I was happy with the end result!

I used 'Cool Day' (now retired), 'Jingle all the Way', 'Beast Friends' and 'Polar Bear Pals' to stamp the main piece of the theme. I also used the 'Stitched Mountain Range' die-namic (now retired) and 'Stitched Snow Drifts' die-namic to create the background scene with an archival ink black pen.

I used my prismacolor pencils to color the images - using the pencils themselves to blend and add texture. I added some white and black gel pen detailing onto one of the presents and the yeti's scarf.

I stamped the sentiment from the 'Polar Bear Pals' stamp set and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder.

I used MFT's Grout Gray ink with a stippling brush to add the gray ink to the mountains - pouncing it on to add texture. I had hand drawn the snow caps onto masking tape and masked these off before inking. I added wink of stella to the snow caps and the sign.

I finished the card by adding some shadows underneath the images and around the snow hills.

I am adding this to the Coloring Virtuoso category of this years 2018 Card Design Superstar contest.

Fingers crossed.
Thanks for looking & happy crafting x
