MFT April VIP Hop and Shop

Hi, there, everyone! You've arrived at my stop on MFT's April VIP Hop and Shop! If you got here from the very sweet and talented Sherrie's blog, you're right on track. If you just happened upon this post, you really need to head on over to the MFT blog 'cause that's the start of all this fabulousness!

Copic Ciao Set E (set of 36 newest Ciao markers)

Some rockin' new stuff, right? 

OK, so on with my card! I stamped fiesta girl on a Perfect Paper Panel with Memento Rich Cocoa ink and colored her with Copic markers along with some serious paper piecing. It occurred to me that a rosette sorta looked like a fully-open fan so I added a double rosette made with the 1/4" Rosette Die-namics die as the sentiment base. Finally, I thought she needed some bling and some sheer ribbon to finish it off.

Actually, here's what really finishes it off: in the main WTG image, she's not holding the glass, but I added the Margarita, stamped her fingers again, and added them on top like they're wrapped around the glass stem. I also added some Clear Copic Spica pen to the stem and some Prisma glitter to the rim of the glass. I love how this looks in real life! Other MFT products I used are Whip Cream and Red Hot card stock.

Here's a close up of the glass.

And here's the inside, where there's a party going on :) The "Ole'" is from the WTG set, but the front and main inside sentiments are from the exclusive mini set.

And here are the Copic markers I used.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Now you need to hop on over to the ever-so-talented Melody's blog to see what she has for you. I have it on good authority that it'll be worth the trip :)
