MFT 2016 Card Design Superstar - Card 1

Wednesday, September 21, 2016
Hello friends! Thanks for coming back to my blog. Today I wanted to share this card I will be entering to the My Favorite Things 2016 Card Design Superstar contest. When I first heard about this contest I knew I wanted to enter so I went through all my MFT stamps and start creating. I didn't realize how many stamp sets I have but I decided to use last year's Birdie Brown Adorable Elephants. Can't go wrong with these cuties right?

I knew I wanted to make a shaker card and incorporate a rainbow because I love colors if you don't know me by now. Hahaha! The elephant standing up was the perfect setting for this card then I built the scene around it. I thought it would be fun for him to squirt a rainbow instead of water or perhaps a water rainbow?? LOL!
First I cut two card panels using a stitched rectangle die. On the first panel I die cut the rainbow and on the second panel I used it for the clouds. Then I went all out with lots of distress inks. I colored all the stamp images with my copic markers. For the shaker part I glued the rainbow directly onto my card base. I used a clear acetate and using my fuse tool I melted the acetate following the shape of the rainbow. Before completely closing the acetate shut I poured 3mm clear sequins from Pretty Pink Posh. I just love these tiny sequins, they add so much sparkle! Next I adhered double sided foam tape on the back of the stamps for dimension. When I was building this card I got so caught up in the scene that I forgot to think about where to put the sentiment. I'm glad there was enough space for it. I heat embossed it with silver embossing powder.
Thanks for stopping by till next time...wish me luck!! :) Have a wonderful day!
