MFT February 2017 Release Countdown | Day 1

Hello and welcome to day 1 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.

Today's card used the new Birdhouses Die-namics (this months free with $60) along with the new Denim stamp to create a textured background.
To create the background, I added ink to a white cardstock panel and then I spritzed the entire stamp with water. The more water you add, the more saturated your cardstock will become and it my blur the detail from the stamp. Because Distress ink reacts with water, the stamp design (covered with water) lifts the colour off the cardstock and leaves you with the detail of the stamp.

Once I had the background done, I diecut the little birdhouses 3 times each from white cardstock and layered them on top of one another. I then diecut them from wood paper and added that as the top layer to make them look more realistic.

This is the card I created for this week's episode of MFTv so if you want to see how I created it, you can check it out on the MFT YouTube channel. ;)

Thanks so much for joining me for day 1 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 tonight!
