MFT - July Release Countdown Day 4!

Hello friends!  I'm back with some more MFT goodies today!  I get to share with you a card that I made using the newest Birdie Brown Stamp Set!  Woo Hoo!

It's called "Saddle Up & Celebrate" and it's just so cute!  For my card today, I just used the little boy and put him in front of a western sunset.  I first stamped my images onto smooth white card stock with Copic friendly black ink and then colored him with my Copic Sketch Markers.  I then used the coordinating dies to cut my image out.

I then worked on the background of the card.  To create my silhouettes, I used THIS technique shown by Jennifer McGuire sometime last year.  I absolutely love this technique!  I highly recommend that you watch her video tutorial if you've never seen it before.

I first lightly outlined some Ranger White Watercolor paper with one of the Oval Die-namics.  I then stamped some cacti from the Llama Love Stamp Set.  I then drew in some hills.

Next, I colored everything in with a Black Copic Marker.  Once it was dry, I then went over everything in black with a clear Versamark Ink Marker and then heat embossed it with Clear Embossing Powder.  You could use black embossing powder but it can get a little bit messy when trying to stay in the lines.

I then used some watercolors and loosely painted what I thought looked like a sunset.

For the base of my card, I stamped a 4.25"x5.5" piece of Kraft Card Stock with some Chocolate Brown Premium Dye Ink.  I then diecut my oval into this piece using the Oval Die-namics.  I heat embossed my sentiment with Super Fine Detail White Embossing Powder and used foam tape to adhere it to the base of my card.  Lastly, I added my cowboy with some 3D Foam Squares and also added some plants from the Llama Love Stamp Set for some added interest.

There are only 4 more days until this new release and all of the new product links become available!  Make sure to head on over to the MFT Blog and leave a comment there for a chance to win an MFT Gift Voucher!  Also, don't forget to check out all of the amazing creations designed by the rest of the participating team members!
