U Light Up the World

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

It's à la modes day and I have a fun card to share using à la modes Lightbulb Moment.


I stamped the image with Memento Tuxedo Black then coloured her with copic markers. The layout is Splitcoast sketch challenge SC379. Colouring the lightbulb was the trickiest part, for me anyway. I wanted the center to be more yellow than the edges so I used the colorless blender to fade out the edges a little. I'm sure there's a better way to achieve that effect though. Then after colouring it I added a coat of clear glaze pen to for a more realistic look. I used the new Mini Royal Roses Die-namics to cut out the puff cloud white felt for the flower accent paired with the royal leaves Die-namics for the leaves.

For the sentiment I cut out three banners using the first place award ribbon Die-namics then inked parts of the sentiment and stamped them on each banner. Then I used the by the letters uppercase Die-namics to cut out the letter "u" from both black licorice and berrylicious card stocks. The patterned papers are from the My Mind's Eye Dolled Up 6x6 pad.
