MFT | Best Hugs

Hello there and happy MFT release day! The January 2021 release from My Favorite Things is now available in store to purchase and today, I am using the new Hug It Out set. 

I started off my card by creating the background, I took a panel of white cardstock and cut out out using the MFT A2 Stitched Rectangle Stax Die-namics. I then placed the MFT Grassy Edges Stencil on top and blended Distress Ink below. I used Mowed Lawn and Twisted Citron. The stencil was removed and the sky blended with Spun Sugar and Picked Raspberry Distress Inks. 

I took the sentiment from the MFT Hug It Out Stamp Set and stamped it on to the grass portion using MFT Extreme Black Ink. I then covered it over with a bit of memo tape and splattered on Arteza Titanium White Gouache using a paintbrush. The memo tape was removed and the panel left to dry. 

I took the image from the MFT Hug It Out Stamp Set and stamped it on to white cardstock with MFT Extreme Black Ink. It was coloured using Copic Markers (the colours that I use are listed below the supplies area for reference) and cut out with the coordinating die. The background panel was adhered flat to an A2 white card base and the animals added on top with foam tape. To finish off, I added a few white gel pen highlights to the animals.
