This is my audition card for the My Favorite Things Stamping Idol competition.
All images on this card are from My Favorite Things. I used Marvy Dye black ink to stamp them onto Neenah Solar Crest White cardstock. Lots of masking was needed to complete this scene. I then colored all the images with Copic markers. I did do some stamping of the background vines/leaves/grass with Vivid Olive dye ink, Whispers Green Leaf dye ink, and Whispers Savoy Green dye ink. Lots of cutting with Cutter Bee scissors to pop up some of the leaves, and buttons were used to make coconuts on the trees. I tied the buttons with strands of twine. Various patterned paper and colored cardstock from Hollo's were also used to complete this card.
I'm submitting this card also to MFTGD16 Challenge, which is to use buttons in some way on a card. I learned of this challenge after completing this card for the audition. Don't you love it when challenges can be combined?
Thanks for giving me the opportunity to share my work with you. And, should I go any further in the competition, I promise to only stamp...not sing.
