MFT February 2017 Release Countdown | Day 4

Hello and welcome to day 4 of the My Favorite Things February release countdown. For the next 5 days, we're counting down to the February 2017 release, sharing cards and ideas using the new products.

For today's card, I used the awesome new Space Explorer stamp set (and coordinating dies) to create a cute little space scene.

I started off by diecutting a circle from a piece of masking paper and then I adhered the negative piece of the masking paper onto a piece of white cardstock. I used an ink blending tool and various colours of Distress Inks and added colour to the inside area of the circle.

I started with my lighter colours first and then slowly built up the darker colours on top until I had it nice and dark with different shades of colour. Before I removed the mask, I watered down some white acrylic paint and then I splattered it on top to give the look of stars.

I stamped, coloured and diecut one of the adorable little astronauts from the stamp set and adhered him over the inked circle with foam adhesive for some added dimension. I stamped the sentiment below him with black ink and then I matted the panel onto a piece of Lavender Fields cardstock before adding it to a Stone Gray card base.

Thanks so much for joining me for day 4 of the February release countdown. All of the new products that we're sharing all week will officially be available in the MFT online store at 9pm EST on February 7, 2017.
