I am taking the His & Her online class and as always it has been fabulous! I have taken a lot of online classes and Kristina and Jennifer still show me new things. Day 1 Kristina used Tim Holtz distress markers- confession, I have the entire set and I think I have used them once- so bad! My favorite thing Kristina taught me was the use of the Tumbled glass distress marker around the edge of the image. I LOVE IT! The thing I learned on my own, there is a major difference in watercolor paper. Buy the good stuff from the art department. It holds up better, blends way easier, warps less. I used this
Supplies: Sweet & Sassy Poppy Bkg, Tim Holtz Distress Markers, Ali Edwards-Incredible, Stazon Black, Willow Copic to color the rhinestones, vellum, SU Cajun Craze CS.

I used the Die-namics Plentiful Petals Die as my focal image. The flower has a lot of layers and I added ink to the edges of the petals to give them a little more dimension and texture. The Leaf-Filled Flourish is fresh out of the package for me and I love it! The die embosses veins on the petals, such a sweet little touch. The sentiment is from Thanks A Bunch stamp set and is stamped on the edge of the Textile Rectangle Frame Die (my favorite way to use that frame). And last I want to point out the Scallop Ribbon Border die that peaks out along the bottoms strip of green pattern paper (all PP from Crate Paper-On Trend).
If you can't tell I LOVE dies and I especially love MFT dies because they cut so clean and all the extra paper pops out so nicely. I get frustrated with dies that don't cut all the way though or I have to work to get the paper out of the dies, but that doesn't happen with my MFT dies. I love them! Oh, and if you have been following the sneak peaks, you know my wallet is in big trouble Monday night (and if you haven't get over there! The link is above). I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE all the new Poppy dies and stamp set, the Triple Scoop, and the new border dies. So excited for release night! Not very often that I say, "I can't wait for Monday!" ;-)
Hope you like my card and Have a GREAT weekend!
All Dies from MFT, Other Supplies not listed above- Dizzy Doily Die, Pearls unknown, CS from SU.
