batty about you {MFT guest designing}

Welcome to another day of MFT's august release countdown!  Only a few more days until the brand new goodies are available in their store at 10pm on August 12th.

I mixed a slew of new product together to create this one card: batty about you stamp set and matching die-namics, the small checkerboard stencil, the trick or treat die-namics, and the tag talk die-namics.

First off, I covered the background with the batty about you sentiment, keeping it a little random looking. More spooky that way, no?  Then, I used their new checkerboard stencil on an oval die-cut.  I stenciled in some orange ink, then moved the stencil over and sponged on more ink in a slightly darker orange. I'm in love with this stencil!

Does the bat-girl look a bit different to you?  I couldn't resist doodling some extra hair, although she looks super cute without bangs too. I love how we can customize stamps to look a little different!  The star on her shirt is from another new set, geek is chic. I achieved the polka dots on her shirt by way of a colorless copic blender.

The tag was the perfect size to ground our little bat-girl.  I die-cut the boo sentiment into the tag, colored it in the same purple as her star and placed it back into the tag.

I hope you like what I've created! Visit the MFT blog for a list of participating blogs today!

  10. I love your card, but I'm just plain in awe of how you used the stencil and made the background. You made it so dimensional with the darker shading on some of the squares! I'm going to have to add that stencil to my ever-growing list! Thanks for sharing!
