Celebrate In Color–MFT April Release Replay


Hello, everyone! Today our team is taking a fresh look at our most recent release with inspiring ideas and innovative takes on the complete collection. We love the opportunity to look at our products with fresh eyes, envisioning entirely new ways to showcase the possibilities they present. We can’t wait to share our ideas with you!

I didn’t get a change to play with Cascading Scallop Stencil during the release so I brought it out for this post. I started with a Stone Gray card stock base. Next I used the stencil on some Ranger Watercolor paper along with a small waterbrush and my Peerless Watercolors to apply color in a rainbow pattern all over the paper. I wanted the bottom finished off so I carefull trimmed the scallop with some small curved scissors and popped it up on the base with foam mounting tape.


The sentiment is from Rainbow of Happiness and was stamped with Versamark on Black Licorice card stock, heat embossed with white detail embossing powder, and also popped up on foam. An easy peasy design that could be mass produced—any number of different sentiments could be used.

And that’s it from me! Thanks so much for stopping by today—see you soon!
