Holy Mackerel!–MFT May Release Countdown, Day Four


Hi, all, and welcome to Day Four of MFT’s May Release Countdown! Today we’re previewing Fishbowl Die-namics, DC You're Fintastic, and Grid Background. Remember, release is May 13th at 10pm, and don’t forget to stop by the MFT Blog today for all the details.


My card started with a Nightshift Blue card stock base, to which I added a Fishnet Cover-Up Die-namics layer cut from Primitive White card stock. I cut out the fishbowl twice, once with Grout Gray card stock and once with clear acetate card stock and adhered them together. Next I cut the “water” element from Berrylicious card stock and then built my “scene”: Kraft card stock for the sand, Sour Apple card stock and Gumball Green card stock for the seaweed, and Tangy Orange card stock/Orange Fizz card stock for the fish on the left and Nightshift Blue card stock and Lemon Drop card stock for the one on the right. The sentiment was stamped on Primitive White card stock with Black Licorice Hybrid ink and popped up on foam.

The inside has another sentiment from DC You’re Fintastic.


Thanks so much for stopping by! See you back tomorrow for Day Three of the Release Countdown!
