YOU are Absolutely Fabulous!

Thanks for tuning in for my third and final card for the 2016 Card Design Superstar Contest by My Favorite Things!

When I thought about entering this contest last week – I had only planned on making ONE card.  I can’t believe I’ve made 3 cards in 2 days!!!  That’s a lot for me these days!  I’ve had to work on them in 10 min increments and late into the night but they’re all done and I can’t be happier that I’ve done 3 cards – each unique and different to show MFT who I am as a card designer.

I honestly had no idea where I was going with this card. I went through all my MFT products and knew I wanted to use the new Geometric Greenery stamp set – so I decided I’d want to use the Homespun dies as an accent.  I also decided I wanted to use the Absolutely Fabulous dies because I had never used them before so I just threw it all together and am glad it worked out!  PHEW!

At first, I wanted to in-lay the word fabulous, but it didn’t stand out enough to me – so I applied a heavier coat of distress ink over it and propped it up on some white craft foam. I LOVE IT!

I also LOVE distress ink. SERIOUSLY – it turns all my white paper into magical colors!

And how about those pretty leaves?! I colored them using Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers. The top panel is Canson XL watercolor paper by the way – and it took the ink blending particularly well! I was worried about it when I first started!

You are ABSOLUTELY FABULOUS for following along – thank you for all your support!  Again – WISH ME LUCK! I WANNE BE A SUPERSTAR! 😀

XOXO,
