Whee! MFTWSC 15

 Isn't this a great saying? I know I don't start each day with a "Whee" but I'm gonna give it a try!
This one of my favorite stamps from My Favorite Things!

And...this is my card using this My Favorite Things Wednesday Stamp Club Sketch Challenge for this week. Here is the sketch:

It was like making a little scene on a card. Lots of fun!  I used a lot of different techniques on this card, so I thought I would break it down into steps for ya!

First I stamped the little girl on Neenah paper with VersaMark ink and then heat embossed her. I then colored her in with my Copic markers. I am in the learning stages of using these Copic markers, so don't look too close! I then stamped her again on some DP and paper pieced her dress.

I then used some of the wonderful MFT Die-Namic dies and cut out the Sun and Butterfly in yellow cardstock. I inked the edges in brown.

I used my Sew Easy and sewed zigzag stitching around all the edges of the panels. This was my first time using these tools. It was a little time consuming...and alot of trial & error!

 I did not have a die for grass, so I had to make my own. I did this by cutting zigzags in 2 strips of paper and then gluing them behind each other. I then curled the leaves down in various spots. I think it turned out cute!

 I then decided that I needed some texture for the tree. So I used another Die-Namic die and cut out lots of tree leaves.  I used a black marker and lined all the edges and then layered them with glue dots.

  Hope you have enjoyed my card! I am always happy to have visitors!

 Thanks for stopping by! And please...let me know you were here and leave a comment!
