MFT Shop Hop!

After the five fabulous days of teasers we had, it's finally time for you to fill your cart over in the Brand Spankin' New section of the MFT Boutique. But before you go the designers have one more round of projects to inspire you.

Be sure to start at Kim's blog so you don't miss a thing.

I used the gorgeous Inspired by Flowers 2 set. I stamped the rose with Memento Tuxedo Black and coloured it with copics. You have no idea how easy it was to get the shading just right because it's all done for you right on the stamped image! Just add the darker colours where there's more black on the image...it seriously couldn't be any easier!

I used the open bracket border die-namic on the top and bottom of the center strip then added a few tiny pearl accents.

For the sentiment on the inside I used one of the quotes from Clearly Sentimental About Friendship which works so well with the rose image.

There's blog candy hidden somewhere along the hop so be sure to leave some love as you hop around. Now you're off to see what the super talented Eva has created!!!

Thanks for stopping by!
Karen
