I started out with stamping the image from My Favorite Things Something Fishy in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a piece of Neenah Solar White cardstock, cut and embossed with the largest Large Label Die from Spellbinders.
The fish, shirt and boots were paper pieced with paper from Cosmo Cricket Togetherness Paper pack. The rest of the image as well as the paper pieced pieces were colored with Copic Markers (Skin: E00, E01, E11, Hair: YR21, YR24, Boots: R24, R27, R39, Pants: N3, N5, N7, Shirt: N1, N3, Pole: E33, E35, E39, Ground: W1, W3, W4, W5). The background was airbrushed with Copic Marker BG32.
Three sides (all but the ground) were paper pierced before it was adhered to a 3 1/8″ x 4 1/4″ piece of red cardstock. A 3 1/8″ long strip of the same red cardstock was cut with MFT’s Dainty Lace Die-namics Border die and adhered right under the red rectangle.
The sentiment is from the same set. It was stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a piece of Solar White cardstock, cut and embossed with a Spellbinders tag die. 1/2″ wide olive Silk Ribbon was taped around the bottom of the edge of the red layer. A little loop was tied off the right hand side with embroidery thread and topped with a Cosmo Cricket Button. The tag was tied around the ribbon along with the button.
The card base is a 4 1/4″ x 11″ piece of Kraft cardstock folded in half. A 3 3/4″ x 5″ piece of Togetherness paper was stitched to a 3/16″ piece of Basic Black cardstock before those layers were adhered to the card base. The image layers were adhered on top of that with dimensionals.
Now to the Fresh and Fun Freebies. I haven’t given away blog candy in quite a while. Last time I ordered from My Favorite Things, I goofed and ordered an extra Something Fishy as well as an extra Dainty Lace Die by mistake. I am adding a few older MFT sets (5 big sets, 3 small ones) to the blog candy.
