So I made it halfway through the month doing the 30 Day Coloring Challenge but my schedule got the best of me and I couldn't keep it up! Next, I am going to try and attend MFT's Summer School.
Our first challenge is white space. Lately, I have been enjoying CAS cards so this was a fun one for me! Laurie is teaching day one and shared the magic of thirds. I chose the center of my card as my focal point.
I dabbed just a bit of watery Broken China Distress Oxide ink on the base then created a scene within the Stitched Rectangle Frame. I colored and die cut the vines from the Doodle Blossoms set and adhered the vines to the back of the frame. The bird and cute ladybug are from the Sending a Smile stamp and die sets. The sentiment is from the Springtime Blooms set. I have a little trick to cutting the perfect little sentiment strips. I used to make myself crazy trying to get sentiment strips even until I purchased the Bold Stripe Cover-up! I love the cover up to use as a background but it has an added bonus of creating perfect cardstock strips. I run the Cover-up and cardstock through my die machine and then I leave the strips in the frame. I place the entire Cover-up in my MISTI and align a sentiment easily on one of the strips! Easy Peasy and straight every time!
Thanks for stopping by and I hope to see you at school, MFT's summer school that is!
