Oh boy, you are going to love this kit that is being released tonight!!

I even managed to include a little bit of Copic colouring in mine.

You should know me by now, I do like to add a little extra something to my cards, whether it be colouring............or in this case.....some texture.

I cut the trees out twice, and feathered one set to give the trees a more realistic look, and although it does not show in the photograph I cut the snowman out of velvet adhesive paper, so he is fluffy close up!

The Sno Cone cardstock was coloured with, yes, you guessed it Distress Ink........thank you to Karolyn Loncon for introducing me to inking at the MFT Retreat.....you really started something missy!

A splattering of perfect pearls within the Snow Globe and Adhesive backed White Birch finished it off.

Oh, before I forget, the kit includes shaker pouches, but I opted not to use one for my card as I feared the shaker beads/sequins would get caught up in the textures trees or stick to the fuzzy snowman!

Happy Colouring

Ink: Distress Ink - Tumbled Glass, Scattered Straw, Broken China, Stormy Sky, Versamark

My goodness is it Wednesday again already!

Time is definitely flying, but our little batty friend seems quite happy to hang around!

I had a play with Distress ink again, the water spodges or whatever they're called were a little more successful this time - and then I got messy with some Picket Fence Distress ink that I flicked onto the card afterwards (and yes I flicked it on me too)

Both the bat and toad were stamped with MFT Hybrid Gravel Grey ink and coloured with Copics.

I added some Nuvo Glitter Drops - White Blizzard to add a little bit of sparkle - ooh I really like that stuff! Not sure it works, but I was trying to create the brain waves of the bat mesmerising the toad........

Now as always MFT have taken the hard work out of card design by coming up with a sketch to inspire you:

It's Wednesday so that means time for another Sketch Challenge with My Favorite Things.........have you been playing along?

This week I decided to use the cute little bat from Witch Way is the Candy, the adorable Halloween set that has recently been re-released.

As I've said before I love these challenges - the sketch takes out the hardwork of deciding on your card layout so you can focus on the fun part......colouring!!

Here's a tip, if you find like me that the stitched element of a die is lost when using patterned paper you need not despair.  I added a little Copic colouring in a shade slightly darker than the paper and suddenly the frame has depth and dimension.

So why not enter this weeks challenge, you could be the lucky winner of $50 Gift Certificate to mftstamps.com

Inks: MFT Hybrid Cement Gray, Premium Dye Lavender Fields
