MFT Teaser, Day Two - à la modes in I Treasure Our Friendship


What did you think of our little lady yesterday? Too, too cute, right? And did you see the news? In the past, we've released our à la modes images in cling rubber, however, this month, we're releasing both of our à la modes in clear photopolymer, just like the rest of our stamps.  This means that we can bring them to you a slightly lower price point than usual - $9.00 each!  How fabulous is that?!  Since our clear stamps are made in the USA, they are of the highest quality, so you'll have the same great image quality that you're accustomed to with any of our other clear stamps!  Sweet deal right?

Today we have à la modes in I Treasure Our Friendship. As always, be sure to check out the MFT Blog to see what the rest of the Design Team have for you today with this little sweetie. I decided to go all Pirates of the Caribbean with her Winking smile

I stamped her on a Perfect Paper Panel (out of stock) with Memento Rich Cocoa ink and colored her with Copic markers before cutting her out. I used
MFTWSC #2 for my layout.


I decided to distress some of the elements to add that “aged” look and used some sailor’s knots for the long vertical element. I scrunched up the sentiment flag but you really can’t see all the wrinkles in this picture. A Dizzy Doily Die-namics die cut frames the map element.

Here’s the inside with another sentiment from the set and a Dizzy Border Die-namics die cut.


Here are the Copic markers I used.
