MCV - MFT - 'Tis the Season



Greetings!

A couple of fun challenges ...

Muse: ChristmasVisions (MCV) 83 and MFT - Camp Create - Inlaid Made Easy

For MCV 83 Cornelia provided four cards for our inspirations.  Her card with the penguins inspired my rendition that is suited for the southwest Arizona, USA, environment.  (For those unfamiliar with Yuma, Arizona, it is a winter destination for visitors from the cold climates and very hot in the summer.) Part of the design includes inlaid circle and date palm tree that is our assignment for MFT Day 1 Camp Create.

MCV - Celebrate the Season

Greetings!

Today, I'm presenting my second card for the current Muse: ChristmasVisions 83 challenge. Cornelia provided four cards for our inspirations ... come play ... there are prizes!!

My card is mostly black and white themed with hints of colors on the ornaments, a colored gemstone on the nose of the reindeer and a thin red strip abutting the striped panel strip. Clear WOS painted on the ornaments adds shimmer.

Hope you're having a wonderful day.

Hi All!

A fun challenge at Muse: ChristmasVisions 83 where Cornelia provided four cards for our inspirations ... and, there are prizes!!

My first card's design is similar to the layout of the cookies on the cookie sheet ... I used small Christmas images, colored in festive holiday colors with Prismacolor pencils, and added a couple paintings of clear WOS on each image.

MFT - WSC - Make a Wish or Two

Greetings!

Hope you're having a pleasant day.

The MFT - Wednesday Sketch Challenge 344 was inspiration to play cards. I stamped, die cut and Copic colored Doodle Blooms and mounted them on the Pretty Pocket die cut (retired). The sentiment was stamped following the curve of stamped dashed lines. For shimmer the flowers were painted with a couple coats of clear WOS. Sparkle was added with clear sequins. For interest a couple of small flowers peak from the top of the pocket. All stamps, dies and ink are MFT.
