MFT May 2018 Guest Design |MFT Safari Party Stamp Set

10:00:00 PM

Hi, crafty friends!

I'm sharing my 2nd projects for MFT as their May 2018 guest designer. (First post is HERE.) Today, I made two cards with bokeh technique using stencil. Here are what I came up with.


For my first card, I started by stamping the images from MFT Safari Party Stamp Set onto watercolor paper. I watercolored them and cut with MFT Die-namics Safari Party. I white heat embossed the sentiment from same stamp set onto black card stock and cut it with MFT Blueprints 27 and scissors.


I then created my own watercolor background. I pulled out A2 sized cold pressed watercolor paper and spritzed clean water using mister over the whole panel. I applied wet watercolor paints to the wet watercolor paper from light to dark colors. Once my first layer was finished, I spritzed clean water again and repeated previous process 2 times.


After dried it completely, I gave bokeh effect to my background. I sponged various size of circles from MFT Stencil Basic Shapes-Circles with white pigment ink using mini blending tool.


Since stenciled circles became little blurry after it dried, I applied White Gel Pen to few small circles. You can see the result around critters in the next picture.


I foam mounted critters and sentiment bar where I wanted them. I embellished some crystals using Mini Multi Medium Matte Glue and finished off this card.


For my second card, I watercolored animals from MFT Safari Party Stamp Set and die cut them with MFT Die-namics Safari Party.

I then die cut my cover panel from MFT Tranquil Textures Paper Pack (retired) using MFT Die-namics Stitched Dome. I die cut grassy border from MFT Calm & Cozy Chevron Paper Pack using MFT Die-namics Grassy Hills as well.

For background, I pulled out bristol paper and ink blended it with Fossilized Amber, Spiced Marmalade and Seedless Preserves Distress Oxide Inks. I then stenciled some circles from MFT Stencil Basic Shapes-Circles with white pigment ink.


I white heat embossed the sentiment from MFT Safari Party Stamp Set onto a piece of Neenah Desert Storm and cut it using craft knife.

To finish, I stacked up each layers using foam adhesive and glue tape on A2 sized kraft card base as shown in the picture. Here are more close up pics.



I hope you enjoyed today's cards and got some inspiration. Thank you for stopping by and happy crafting!
