June Birthday project! – MFT

Hello everyone!

Today we have a new Birthday project and this month the theme is “PARTY”

Despite different backgrounds, beliefs, and traditions, one thing we share that unites us and is worth celebrating is the birthday of friends and family. Recognizing the special day of someone you love with a handcrafted card straight from the heart is always a good idea and if stocking your stash with unique birthday designs is on the agenda, have we got the perfect challenge for you!

It’s just not a birthday unless there’s a party involved – even if it’s of the paper variety! This month, our talented team is sharing projects that feature a party scene — grab a single set, or mix and mingle characters from a variety of collections to create a festive atmosphere perfect for celebrating the lucky birthday boy or girl.

And here we go with my card for this challenge…when i think of a party i think about baloons…so, why not a LOT of Birthday baloons in raibow colors?

The little mouses are from the stamps set “It’s a mice time to celebrate” and the baloons are all hand drawn!

As always i’ve stamped and white embossed the sentiment on a black cardstock!

I hope you liked my card and i can’t wait to see what you’ll make with this month’s theme!

Have a creative day,

Alberto

Hello everyone!

Today is my birthday and is there a better way to celebrate than a new preview of the upcoming MFT release ?

for today’s coloring i’ve decided to play with the brand new Pure innocence stamp!

When i saw this cute little girl i’ve imagined her at the beach so i’ve decided to draw a little background behind her.

So i’ve stamped my image, and then with the use of one of the MFT stencils i’ve drawn the oval behind her. After doing this, i’ve started coloring the sunset, the beach and the sea.CountdownDay2-Alberto

As always all the coloring is made with my beloved copic markers, i’ve also added some touches with a white gel pen and with a black multiliner (for the birds!)

Hope you liked my coloring for today and as always, don’t forget to come back tomorrow for a new preview day to the new release!
