|Being Cute Is What I Do - MFT|
I am super-excited about today's posting. I have decided to take the plunge and enter MFT's March Guest Design Team contest! I have toyed around with trying out for a design team for a while and think a one month guest role would be fun. MFT is a great company and their stamps are perfect for honing my coloring skills.
For this sweet little girl, I used a combination of paper piecing and Copic coloring. Her face uses E000, 00, 11 & R20. Her hair - E50, 51, 53, & 57.
If you look closely, you can see the flower on her shirt has a center that's a French knot. Her legs and feet use the "outside the box" technique and extend beyond the circle die. I found that old felt scraps are the perfect barrier to slip under the edge of the die so it doesn't cut through the image.
The white card base uses a dotted swiss embossing folder, and all of the patterned pieces are layered on white paper.
I've been coloring MFT images like crazy lately. You can see a different version of this same girl colored in the post below this one. There's an adorable boy snowboarding two posts down!

I don't know where this will lead, but it has been fun to push myself to take a risk and try! Cross you fingers and send good wishes my way. The contest closes next week. I'll keep you posted!
P.S. I'm going out of town for a few days to the Big Apple! (Mostly work and a little fun.) I'll post a card when I come back on Sunday.
