thinking of you...MFT July Teasers Day 6 51

Mona Pendleton | Sunday, July 7, 2013 @ 9:00 PM | , , , , ,


Hi there! Welcome to Day 6 of the MFT July teasers! The new products will be available on Tuesday, July 9th at 10 PM Eastern in the MFT Boutique. Be sure to hop over to the MFT Blog for a list of today's participating designers along with the amazing prize info!

***BEWARE ~ BRIGHT  colors to follow ~ you just may need to put your sunglasses on! ;)***

Today I have a set of several cards to share that I created backgrounds for using a variety of INTENSELY bright sprays along with the MPD Concentric Circles stencil. Each card features the bigger Hibiscus blossom from MPD Tropical Sensations

Shown below is a photo of the sprayed backgrounds:
All the cards are similar yet different. Basically, after I created the colorful backgrounds, I stenciled on Gesso, added some paint, stamped the chicken wire image from MPD Distressed Background Blocks, adhered a stamped Hibiscus from MPD Tropical Sensations and a sentiment from MFT Just My Type  to each.

For the first card, I randomly stamped the chicken wire image from MPD Distressed Background Blocks and sponged on gesso while using the MPD Graduated Hexagons stencil. The hibiscus was stamped using the following MFT inks: Orange Fizz, Lemon Drop and Sour Apple.
For the second card, I sponged on gesso while using the MPD Graduated Diamonds stencil. The hibiscus was stamped using the following MFT inks: Razzle BerryLemon Drop and Sour Apple.
For the third card, I sponged on gesso while using the MPD Graduated Dots stencil. The hibiscus was stamped using the following MFT inks: Grape JellyLemon Drop and Sour Apple.
and last but not least for the fourth card, I sponged on gesso while using the MPD Graduated Diamonds stencil. The hibiscus was stamped using the following MFT inks: Lemon Drop and Sour Apple.
Thanks so much for stopping by ~ I hope the bright colors weren't too much!
Be sure to stop by the MFT Blog to see what the rest of the team has created. You'll also read about some HUGE prizes being given away this week during Teaser Time that you won't want to miss! I'll be back tomorrow with more to share for Day 7!
Be Sweet :)
