MFT JANUARY PRODUCT LAUNCH

It's time for one last card before you rush off and fill your baskets with all the new products that are available today.


This project started out with a top folding A2 card base, made from MFT Smooth White card.
A piece of Bristol paper was then inked with Distress ink using a blending tool to create the basic background.  This was then cut with the largest from the A2 Stitched Rectangle Stax 1.  The Eiffel Tower, from the new In Paris stamp set was stamped on to the coloured piece with Premium Gravel Gray ink.  At this point, I referred to images of the real Eiffel Tower to assist in creating an authentic scene.  I opted for Caran D'Ache Neocolor II, water-soluble wax pastels to add dimension to the tower and create the parkland background.  The clouds were created with an Adirondak Acrylic Paint dabber. Using the new Mini Well-Connected Alphabet, I stamped Bonjour, with the new Hybrid Extreme Black ink.

The young girl from Mon Cheri was stamped with Hybrid Cement Grey ink on Copic suitable card and coloured with Copic (available HERE) and Caran D'Ache Pablo pencils.

COPIC COLOURS:
Skin: E0000, E0000, E40, E41, E42, BV20, BV23
Eyes: B21, B23, W8
Hair: E13, E21, E23, E25, E27, W8
Scarf: YG61, YG63, YG67, C6
Dress: B21, B23, B26, B95, B97, C6, C7
Bag/Shoes: B12, B14, B16, B95

Once coloured, I cut her out by hand and adhered her to the card with foam pads for added dimension.  A small amount of pencil was used to ground her and the sentiment.

Now for the words you have been waiting for:
