My Favorite Things

May 2019 MFT & Friends

The My Favorite Things May 2019 Release is here! I have one card to share with you before you make any decisions and this card showcases the adorable Purr-fect kitties!

These cats are nice and large, and I immediately saw them as great candidates to do some watercoloring. I had recently started to gain familiarity in using my Arteza Brush Pens and I’m still learning! But the watercolor look definitely made these kitties even cuter. Once the images were dried, I used the coordinating Die-namics to die cut the imageso ut.

I felt a watercolor background was fitting behind these kitties, so I heat embossed the BG Roses All Over Background in white onto watercolor paper and created a simple wash in a light blue.

For the sentiment, I used the Simply Thanks Die-namics twice on white card stock and once on gold sparkle card stock. The secondary sentiment was from Greetings & Salutations, heat embossed in gold onto Lemon Chiffon card stock and die cut out using the Skinny Strips Die-namics.

All images and the sentiment strip was added to the card with foam tape, and mounted onto a white A2 base card.

Well this is it, for now. Drop by the MFT Blog for more inspiration from the team and friends. Thanks for joining me in the release countdown and see you next time!
