MFT Pure Innocence
I have to admit, I fell in love when I first saw these adorable little girls, and since I finally bought them, I haven't been able to play with them NEARLY us much as I want to!!! However, when I saw the challenge for last month's Favorite Guest Designer contest I quickly designed a plan!My friend Michelle had recently received a luminary in a cool swap she does with one of our online stamping friends. I thought that would be a fun thing to make...so I stamped my little girl onto some vellum and colored her with my copics. the luminary itself was easy to make (this one used 2 pieces of cs, 3.75" by 5.25 inches. The luminary is 3.5 inches by about 5 inches tall (I punched off the top using a new edge punch!!)I colored in the white bits of the image using my white gel pen, and then used my nesties to cut the whole, and to create a border for the opening. Next, I added a little polar white flowersoft around her feet and on top of her hat for snow. Lastly, I added the "Jo-Bow" that Joanne Basille has been inspiring us all to make!Next I created the matching card. It came together much the say the luminary did, except this time I paper pieced the little girls jacket and hat. I wish I had layered the designer paper on some red cardstock, and there were a few other things I could have done to "step it up" but I was getting close to the deadline so I just needed to finish.I have to say, I love how this set turned out!! I hope you've enjoyed seeing it.
