LOVE...MFT January Creative Challenge 31

Hi there! Welcome to the MFT DT January 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 create custom sentiments or add personalization to our card, home-decor, 3-D gift or scrapbook page using any of our alphabet dies or stamps.
I created a mixed media canvas featuring a banner that was stamped using Max Alphabet:
I'll start by sharing how I created the banner: I die cut Primitive White cardstock using a Die-namics Jumbo Fishtail Banner STAX die, stamped the letters L-O-V-E using the Max Alphabet along with PERMANENT black ink, misted each piece, punched holes in the corners, strung together using hemp then anchored it down using Steel Grey buttons:
To create the canvas, I first added lots of texture to the background using the Graduated Dots Stencil, allowed to dry then misted with a variety of sprays and inks:
Once the background was dry, I randomly stamped the checkerboard image from Distressed Background Blocks:
I die cut the photo of Jerry and April using a Die-namics Heart STAX die and surrounded it with a variety of die cut flowers that were made using the following dies: Die-namics Large Hybrid Rose, Die-namics Mini Royal Roses and Die-namics Royal Rose:
Thanks so much for visiting! Please be sure to check out theMFT Blog for a list of all the designers who will be joining along.
Be Sweet ;)
