MFTeaser - Let's Get Together

Welcome to day five of seven fabulous days of MFT teasers!

It's à la modes day and I used the new à la modes Martinis on Me. Gosh, you'd think I'm a party animal or something with my alcohol themed posts the past two days, but it is the weekend after all! LOL!


I love working with purple on a card, and with the bright colours and colour blocking I'm seeing in the fashion world lately, I decided to go bold and pair purple with orange. The image is stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black and coloured with copics. Can I just say, I adore how her hair turned out!!! I wish copic markers worked on real hair (or maybe it's better that they don't), because I'd be a red head right now if they did!!! The layout is Jen's Deconstructed Sketch #45.

I used my Circle STAX 1 Die-namics to cut out the grape jelly circle before embossing it with the seeing spots embossing folder. Then I used the dizzy doily Die-namics to cut out the mustard patterned paper, which is from the Teresa Collins Fabrications Canvas 8x8 pad. The new Fishtail Flags STAX Die-namics were perfect to cut out the orange fizz card stock card stock and the flower was cut from wisteria felt using the royal rose Die-namics. I used the new Royal Leaves Die-namics to cut out the sour apple felt leaf accents, and I finished the image panel with two coats of clear glaze pen on the martini glass.

On the inside I combined two of the sentiments which work perfectly together and stamped the image again with Memento Lulu Lavender ink.
