MFT Have a Blast!

Hello crafty friends!  I am always attempting to use my Copics more.  Coloring and blending and trying and trying more.  Not always having success but I am determined.  My sweet friend Lori, was a lot of help to me this weekend and I was able to learn some more things and in turn, created this little card....


So after coloring him 3 times.  Yes.  The first one was bleeding all over itself.  The 2nd one?  I splattered navy ink all over it...agh!!!  So this is the 3rd try and he was a keeper.

To create this background, I took some MFT Premium Dye ink and coated an acrylic block.  I sprayed the block down with water and applied it to the watercolor paper, wiggling it a little, till the color was down.  I popped the watercolored card front on to the card base with fun foam.  Then I added the little astronaut and a heat embossed sentiment to the front to finish it off.  


This new set is so much fun!  Lots of cute images and sentiments included.  Head on over to the MFT store to see the new February Release.

Thanks so much for stopping in today!
