MFT Preview 2 — What’s Up?

It’s Day 2 of previews of My Favorite Things July 3 release! Today we’re sharing samples using Inspired by the Sea and You Lift Me Up Flopsey.

I separated my Flopsey image, masking off the balloons and then filling in the bits of missing lines from Flopsey using a Copic multiliner.

The sentiment was stamped onto a Fishtail Flag with a wee bit of yellow dotted paper adhered along the bottom.

I stamped the balloons, doing the same thing–filling in the missing lines with a marker.  Flopsey is raised on foam boosters and the stamped balloon strings were replaced with real white ones.  To ground Flopsey, I nestled him between two layers of Fresh Cut Grass.

I kept the inside super simple, using scraps of the patterned paper and stamping a second sentiment from the set.

Here are the details about the upcoming release:
