MFT Customer Blog Hoppin' with Flopsey

Welcome to the MFT customer blog hop!!! I was thrilled when Joanne Basile emailed to ask if I'd like to participate in the hop this month. I {heart} my MFT stamps!!! You'll want to start hopping at Joanne's blog so you don't miss any eye candy.
I decided to go hopping with Flopsey today. Flopsey's Flowers was sitting in my drawer waiting for ink so I pulled him out for today's card. I used this week's MFT Splitcoast sketch challenge, MFTSC99, for the layout.

I started by stamping Flopsey with Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto a Perfect Paper Panel then I coloured him with copics. I stamped him a second time so I could cut out the flowers and pop them for dimension. Then I cut out Flopsey and popped him onto the floral paper from My Mind's Eye. I layered the patterned paper onto chocolate then stitched around the edges.

I pulled my solid cardstock colours from the patterned papers. I couldn't get the teal colour to show up properly and it looks more blue on the computer, but it's actually a good match for the patterned paper. I added a ghost flower embellishment (which I picked up a while ago at MFT) and layered it onto a circle of orange before adhering the white brad. Two chocolate brads beside the sentiment finish the card nicely.

Now you're off to the talented Dawn Easton. Happy Hopping!!!

Thanks for stopping by!
Karen
