Diamonds are forever

This is the other card I made again I use My Favorite things sketch for inspiration MFTWSC57. I coloured the image with copic pens and paper pieced the dress with  designer paper and the used more copic pens for shading. Although you can't tell with this photo the designer paper I have used on the background has felt embossed flowers on the cream card, it looks really elegant. This edge is a Martha Stewart border punch and the flower is once again the MFT Prima Donna Petals Die-namics die the edges were sponged with Antique Linen distress ink. 
 I even did the inside of the card as many people seem to be doing these days. I does seem to give something extra to the card.
Stamps: MFT - a'la mode "It must be Love"
Paper: DCWV La creme stack, black and cream card
Other: ms punch, copic pens,sizzix swirls die, nestabilities dies, kindy glitz, gem stones, MFT Die-namics, distress ink.

Perfect Engagement

This week I had to get some inspiration I had 2 engagement cards to make. Of course I knew exactly which stamp I wanted to use so I looked through past Wednesday sketch challenges and chose MFTWSC55 and made it into a easel card, I just love the way it stands to display your work.
The image was coloured with copics and the dress paper pieced with the same designer paper as the background. This is the first time I have used the MFT Flower die that I got for Christmas and I just love it, be prepared to see more often on my cards. The create to oval for the text I just traced the inside of the nestabilities die and cut it out by hand and then rubbed out the pencil marks for the perfect fit.
Stamps: My Favorite Things -  A'la 'Mode It must be Love', sentiment  Gina K- punchy words
Paper: DCWV - designer paper, white and black card stock
