MFTeasers-Day One!


It's day one of MFT teasers and today I'm sharing the newest Flapper Doodle - S.S. Flapper set.

How cute are they in their little motor boat!! I went for the old school look of a wooden boat and paper pieced practically the entire image, layer upon layer. Those skinny little arms were a challenge to cut out and I was afraid I'd amputate one by mistake, but patience and sharp scissors paid off! 

The patterned papers are from my October Afternoon Seaside paper pad and whatever wasn't paper pieced was coloured with copics. I just love how quick the Flappers are to colour. I added  a little metallic sparkle to the motor with my clear Spica glitter pen and layered some patterned waves with my catch a wave die-namic.

I used the smallest flower from the pretty posies die-namics for the accent on the sentiment and added a felt flat bottom cloud for dimension. The open scallop doily die-namic kind of acts like the sun in the background and see that new scalloped ribbon die-namic along the bottom...isn't it delish!!!

On the inside I stamped the sentiment "we're in the same boat" directly onto the scalloped ribbon die-namic and kept the rest quite simple.
