TMS Meets MFT

This week the theme for Tuesday Morning Sketches is Crayon Resist. This is a technique I never tried, but I gave it a whirl anyway. I didn't have any glossy cardstock so I used plain smooth finish cardstock and it seemed to work pretty well. To make my background paper, I used Close to my Heart's Rustic Flowers set and colored the flowers with a white crayon stolen from my son's crayon box, but left the centers uncolored. I sponged over the flowers with Buttercup ink from CTMH. I then sponged over flower centers with Key Lime ink, then wiped all of the flowers with a paper towel to remove the excess ink.

I chose to use this week's MFT Wednesday Stamp Club sketch for this card too. For my main image, I chose the new Who's That Girl from MFT called "Girls Rule." The sidewalk and grass where added with markers. With all the daisies on the card so far I chose to accent the bottom with a Die-namics Rolled Daisy. The center of the daisy is a pearl stick pin that came with last months MFT VIP Kit. The scalloped border along the bottom is a Die-namics die too.
