{My Favorite Things} MFT & Friends | June 2018 Release

Hi, friends! I'm so happy to be joining My Favorite Things and their MFT & Friends feature for the June 2018 Release. The MFT design team is joined by several guest designers to inspire you with the new products!

A very good friend of mine is celebrating a birthday next week and she's a cat-lover so Meow Mix was the perfect set to use. We both own pretty much every cat set that MFT has ever produced and I know she's going to add this one to her wish list, too. ;)

To set the scene for the kitties and flowers, I stamped the Radiating Halftone Background and blended six distress inks across it to create a sunset. I used the same yellows and oranges for the hills, which were die cut with retired Scenic Safari border dies but Snow Drifts is an excellent alternative.

I used Copic markers to colour the images from Meow Mix and I used as much purple as possible, making all the flowers and butterflies purple, since that is my friend's favourite colour.

I used warm earthy colours to colour the cats so they would complement the bright colours in the background. I adhered three of the images flat on the card base and the other three were popped up with foam tape for balance and visual interest. To finish, I used a clear Wink of Stella marker to add some shimmer to the butterflies.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Be sure to visit the MFT blog to see what the other guests and design team are sharing. :)
