It's Artistic Expression time again over on the MFT Blog

What shall we do with the drunken sailor.........or indeed a pesky chicken?  Whilst I ponder on that I thought I'd share a little teaser with you all - this is from my latest Artistic Expression feature for My Favorite Things.


If you'd like to see the whole process and what the finished card looked like please click HERE to take you to the MFT Blog.

MFT Colour Challenge


Another fun challenge that we hold every two weeks over on the MFT Blog and if you use our products you could be the lucky recipient of $20 store voucher!

So I guess, you'd like to see the colours you need to use this time:


I chose a very simple design, but did squeeze in a little bit of Copic colouring.



The background paper, Calm and Cozy Chevron was cut out with a Wonky Stitched Rectangle die.  Then I used the Big Thanks die to cut out the letters in both Blueberry and Blue Yonder, mounting them together.  The little parrot is from the Party Like a Pirate stamp set, which I coloured with Copics and then cut out with the co-ordinating die and mounted with foam squares.

Good luck to everyone who enters.

MFT Sketch Challenge

Now this was great fun and a little different from my usual Copic colouring style.  Have you had a go with a Sketch Challenge before, if not, why not enter this week, I'd love to see your interpretations of the sketch.


I used You Float my Boat from this months release, opting for a dark blue and teal colour scheme.


I look forward to seeing your entries and don't forget you have the chance of winning a $50 gift voucher to spend in store!

It's MFT Launch Day - oh yes!


Yes, you can click that mouse and fill your shopping baskets, the June release is now available at the MFT store.

To celebrate, I am sharing another Party Like a Pirate project - a simple colour palette for the card and oh boy a lot of Copics (I got a little carried away)



I thought I would change my colour scheme from the traditional Pirate colours and opted for shades of blue and teal.  To that end I first chose my backing paper, in this instance I used True Blue Houndstooth and mounted it with both Blu Raspberry and Summer Splash card.  

Here is the Copic colour list, brace yourself there are quite a few colours:

Have fun shopping and I look forward to seeing the wonderful projects you make with this new release.

Anyone for s'mores? MFT Countdown Day 2

Oh this one is cute.......seriously cute! It is called Beary Big Adventure.



Confession time, I actually used an old Sketch Challenge for this one.........if you're stuck for a card design idea it is a really good source of inspiration.  Anyway, I used Kraft Collection Solid Stripes at the base with a band of Cherry Crisp card, which reminds me.....  Have you seen the new additions to the Printable Resources section - you can now get colour matches for all the paper packs - have I mentioned how much I love the guys at MFT!!  Oops, nearly forgot the Kraft card frame I cut using a Stitched Circle Scallop Frame die.  
As to the colouring......you know the routine by now, I stamp the image on Copic card using Hybrid ink in Cement Grey and then colour like a woman possessed with my trusty markers.  For those who like to play along here is the Copic list.

Thank you for dropping by today, I will be back on launch day.........not long to wait now!!

Ahoy matey! MFT Countdown Day 4

As promised, I am back today with another teaser and oh boy you are going to love this one, it is called Party Like a Pirate!!!




I kept this one really simple as I knew I wanted to concentrate on the colouring - you know me - I'm happiest with a Copic marker, pencil or paint brush in my hand!
So I just used a combination of Traditional and Stitched Tags, mounting my Copic card on MFT Gravel Grey card.


Well that is it for now, I will be back in a couple of days with another project.  Oh and don't forget that some of the links for the new products below will not go live until launch day.
