Are you pumped to see all the brand new goodies that My Favorite Things has to offer in their release?? You should be cuz it's a gooder! And I was lucky enough to be chosen as this month's Guest DT member- just by playing along..do it! You never know when it might be your lucky month! Today the DT and myself are previewing a few new sets, Fred Bear- Well Done and First Place Award Ribbon.
I am working with Freddy (we are tight, so I can call him that;)....this is going to be my DH's Father's Day card. Craig loves BBQ'ing and is really good at it! I, on the other hand tend to
Everything is pretty straightforward. Coloured with copics, brads added here and there. Some cute little fishtail banner dies with the sentiment on one, and some stacking stars dienamics layered in various colours as the main embellishment. I tied a brown button with SU's linen thread and attached a cool metal flipper charm to the twine. It's fastened down with a mini glue dot to keep the charm from flopping around. Fred Bear's apron pocket and hat are paper-pieced and he is standing atop double layers of fresh cut grass (cut with another dienamic)...one positive and the other the negative side.
You can see from this picture that I applied some glaze to his nose and eyes, and spica clear glitter pen to the BBQ tools, BBQ, and burger edges. You can also see a close up of the sparkly steel BBQ and little metal flipper- isn't it sweet!
I left the inside blank so that the kids have room to sign their names (you know how they like to make 'em big!!). A few brads and some more stacking stars tie in the design from the front.
Now head on over to Kim's blog to see a list of all the designers previewing one, or both of the teaser sets today!
Stop by again tomorrow for another preview! I went a little out of my bold and bright comfort zone into the world of shabby-chic...stop by and tell me if I should stick to what I know;)
