Dream BIG...April MFT Creative Challenge 43

Hi there! Welcome to the September MFT Design Team Creative Challenge! Just in case you are not familiar, the MFT Design Team Creative Challenge is a monthly feature, where we are challenged to explore our creative side using a specific theme, product, or technique. This month, we were challenged to build a scene using MFT Stamps and Die-namics.
I had so much fun with this month's theme! I created a fun spring scene on a 8 1/2" x 10" canvas board featuring the sweet girl from the MFT Doodle Garden Springtime Wishes stamp set along with a variety of Die-namics dies. I started by covering the canvas board using tissue paper and coloring with gelatos.
I stamped the little sweetie on a piece of Blending Card as well as a piece of patterned paper. I colored the image and paper pieced her dress. She is standing in front of a white fence made using Die-namics Lattice Fence. The grass was made using Die-namics Grassy Edges.
She is flying a kite that was die cut using Die-namics Jumbo Kite:
Nothing like a sunshiny spring day to fly a kite ;) I combined a few dies to create the sun: Die-namics Award Seal, Die-namics Fishtail Flags Layers STAX and Die-namics Fishtail Flags STAX:
I stamped a sentiment from MFT Big Greetings and created puffy clouds using Die-namics Jumbo Cloud STAX
I wanted to add texture so I die cut a doily using a Die-namics Dizzy Doily Duo die and used as a stencil as I applied a mixture of texture paste and white acrylic paint over the die cut. The white random dots all over the canvas were stamped using white acrylic paint along with a stamp from MFT LJD Darling Dots and the random text was stamped using a stamp from MFT DC First Class Friend.
Thanks so much for visiting! I hope you enjoyed my canvas as much as I enjoyed creating it! Remember to check out the MFT Blog for a list of all participating designers who have put their MFT stamps and Die-namics dies to work to create a scene for you to enjoy.
Be Sweet :)
