Hits and Highlights!

Hello everyone! It’s time for another Hits and Hightlights over MFT blog!

Launch your cards into a whole new world with the super fun Blast Off Die-namics. Experiment with color and texture, and have some fun with your background while you’re at it — the sky is the limit!

and here is what i’ve made  using this adorable die-namic! I’ve cut out a piece of copic friendly paper and colored each little piece of this rocket.

After doing this, i’ve glued everything together and added some fun details with a white gel pen.

Coloring dies is a thing that i don’t do that often but every time i do that, i have a lot of fun!

August Vault Release Day2 – MFT

Hello everyone!

Are you ready for a new vault release? Well, i am…and i’m in love with the products that are back to the MFT family!

Vault_Blog

Today i’m showing you one of the newest stamps and i must admit this one is on my “favorite-ever” list, and it is called “Polynesian Paradise”.

I’ve also made a quick step by step tutorial for the skin color…i hope you’ll enjoy! Don’t forget to share this tutorial on your social medias if you’d like!

On the photo you can actually see all the color i’ve used on each step. I started with E09 (but you can use also E08 if you have ciao markers).

Then i used my E99 and E97 to blend the first color. After doing this i’ve used E02 and YR000 (you can also use E00 or E000 instead of the YR000).

If you think this color combo is too light for you and you want to add more contrast just do all over again a couple of times !

And here is the finished coloring!

I hope you’ll like today’s coloring and don’t forget to come back tomorrow for a new countdown day to the new Vault release!

Have a creative day,

Alberto
