{MFT Teasers- Day2} Jolinne

Hey MFT fans! First of all, thanks for all of your lovely comments yesterday on my Fred Bear card! I really enjoyed reading them and appreciate each and every one of them!
Today we are previewing 3 more sets:
  • Clearly Sentimental about Friendship (previous Triple Scoop Set)
  • Jolinne - I Love You This Much
  • Pretty Pocket
I used Jolinne on my card, and as promised, I am showing you something really far from my usual style! And, GASP, I didn't use copics to colour, instead I watercoloured!! I know- shocking!!
So here it is! I tried to take inspiration from some of the masters, in my opinion, of the shabby-chic, femine, vintage kind of look, Betsy Veldman and Melissa Sauls.


I used an old bingo card, scuffing up the edges and spraying it with glimmer mist. I then added a heart punched in pink and then vellum and added a pink button ties with linen thread (in place of the 'O' in ADORE), a bit of crochet ribbon peaks out from behind.


I watercoloured Jolinne using an aquapainter and various inks on watercolour paper and distressed the edges as well. You can see a Dainty Doily Dienamic spritzed with glimmer mist behind the jolinne panel and bingo card. I die cut 3 butterflies (2 from vellum and 1 from pink CS- all misted) and layered them, adding heart stickpins and a linen thread bow and vintage looking button. As you can see, there is a few 'runs' with the glimmer mist and that's why I don't usually use it, but I figured it's supposed to look homemade, so what the hey;)
A bit of crochet ribbon and a pink, satin bubbly bow finish it off!



On the inside, I used another misted doily die, more threaded vintage buttons and distressed paper. I stamped the die with one of the sentiments that comes with Jolinne in memento rich cocoa ink (I find it has a softer look than black ink).


I wish the pics showed the shimmer more, it is really pretty IRL! Plus, my aquapainter had some shimmer paint left on it from a previous project, so the watercolouring took on a really irridescent look! Twinkling H2O's without the cost;)
