MCT May Release Sneak Peek #4


It's the last day of sneak peeks for the May My Creative Time Release!  Is your shopping list growing?  There are three more new sets being showcased today, and I used one of them on my card: the Pretty Butterflies & Dragonfly Dies!  You are going to love these!

To make my card I used a technique that I learned in Online Card Classes' Watercolor for Card Makers, in which I made score lines on watercolor paper with my Scor-Pal and then used distress inks and water to get the cool background.


I made this dragonfly with one of the new dies.  Isn't it beautiful with the little dot embossing?  I inked it up with some distress inks to match it to my background.  The doilies were cut from tissues paper with the MCT Stitched Doily Die.


I used Stazon Ink to stamp my sentiment, from MCT's Many Greetings Stamp Set, on a hand-cut vellum banner.  A few scattered Melissa Frances pearls finished off the card!

***Sneak Peek Giveaway!***
We will be giving away the sets we are showcasing each day to ONE lucky winner!  For example, for the set we showcase on Wednesday, Emma will announce the winner in her video on Thursday, and for the set we showcase on Thursday, she will announce on Friday, and so on...
