My Favorite Things - June Release Countdown Day 4

We're inching closer to the June 8th release at My Favorite Things and this is Countdown Day 4.    Today I'm sharing a card made using the set called Crafty Companions illustrated by Rachelle Anne Miller.

My card is a mini slim with the card base measuring 6 inches x 3 1/2 inches although I created a panel slightly smaller than that and used the Micro Cloud Edges Stencil and the Slimline Grassy Edges Stencil to 'ink blend' the background.  Inks used are Distress Oxides in Speckled Egg and Mowed Lawn.   This panel was backed with white craft foam and adhered to the card base and then I set it to one side.

On Copic friendly cardstock I stamped my images from Crafty Companions and used Copic markers to colour them.  I die cut the images using the coordinating die-namics and a few points were highlighted with a white gel pen then they were backed with foam tape and applied.

All that was left to do now was to create the sentiment.    I always have sentiment strips pre die-cut  and for this project I chose from the Skinny Strips Die-namics.  I stamped with Versamark Ink and heat embossed in gold.   I trimmed the strip to the right size then backed it with foam tape and applied.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today and I encourage you to visit the MFT Blog now to see more of the release and further inspiration and leave a comment for a chance to win a $75 gift voucher .... that would come in handy right?

Happy crafting friends!
