MFT AUGUST RELEASE COUNTDOWN DAY 5

Hello and welcome to the MFT August Release Countdown kickoff! All of the amazing new products will be available Tuesday, August 7th at 9PM EDT. Make sure to stop by the MFT Blog every day for the next five days to see the full reveal.

My card today features the new Painted Poppies stamp set. The size of the flower stamps makes it so fun to watercolor!


To begin, I stamped the flowers you see on the card on masking paper and cut them out. After, I stamped the flowers using the masking technique (so that I can overlap two of the flowers) with Cement Gray Hybrid Ink for no-line coloring on A2 size watercolor paper. 


I colored the images using Daniel Smith Extra Fine Watercolor. Once they dried, I covered the flowers with the masks again and ink blended the background with Fossilized Amber Distress Oxide. 


To finish, I added splatters of red watercolor and stamped the sentiment from 'From Me to You' with Extreme Black Hybrid Ink. 


Thank you for visiting me today. I hope I'll see you again tomorrow for Countdown Day 4!
