4 October 2018


Hello there!
No, you are not hallucinating, I'm crafting again.

Being married to a farmer means the summer months are very busy for me and when combined with extremely painful orthodontics I decided to take a little break from Design Team work. 

Anyway, let's take a peek at what I've been working on for the October Release at My Favourite Things:

The cool thing about this little guy is that he's the "freebie" stamp for October at MFT - cute isn't he!
I stamped him on to a piece of Copic suitable card that had been pre-cut with a Stitched Square die and as always used Cement Gray Hybrid ink for my usual no-lines look!

Please note, the background was drawn and coloured by hand, it's not available as part of the stamp.

Everything was coloured with Copic markers:

Sky: B000
Snow: BG0000, BG000, C00, C0, C1, V0000, V20
Trees: N2, N3, N4, N6, YG63, YG67, YG91
Reindeer: E40, E41, E42, E43, E44, N2, N4, N6, YG91

The additional snowy touches were created using a white gel pen.  Just remember, as with coloured pencils, please ensure you have completed all of your Copic colouring before adding the gel pen.  That way you will avoid damaging your nibs.

I used Neenah 110lb white card for the top folding notecard, with a mount cut from Cement Gray card using a Square Stax Die-Namics.

Well, did you enjoy that?
Why not hop on over to the MFT blog where you will find links to my fellow Design Team members who are also showcasing various products that will be available in a few days time.

I will be back in a couple of days with another project from the upcoming October release.
