Welcome to day ONE of MFT Teasers!  Today, the gang is featuring a new Who's That Girl set - this is Godspeed.



I did a little paper piecing with this image - I started by stamping the image in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on some cork paper from the Note to Self 6x6 paper pack from Echo Park and that laid out the cork background.  Then I stamped it again on white cardstock and again on some darker paper from the Note to Self pack.  I colored the jacket with Copics to add some shading and to tone the pattern down a little bit.  I added some stars using the new Star STAX Die-namics and stamped the sentiment on one of the Fishtail Flags STAX Die-namics dies.  I ran the Notched Border Die-namics die through my Vagabond to make 2 borders and then I sewed them together (sort of) using some large zigzag stitches.  The layout is Sweet Stop's SSS160.

For the inside of my card, I stamped the bold sentiment on more of the cork paper, the letters in Memento Tuxedo Black and the heart in Memento Lady Bug. 


The tag is one of the soon-to-be-released Traditional Tags STAX Die-namics and then I made the hole at the top by layering the small dies from Circle STAX 1 Die-namics and Circle STAX 2 Die-namics.

Don't forget to stop by the MFT Blog for a complete list of the designers playing along in today's teaser.

Here are the Die-namics I used today:













recipe - 
stamps: wtg godspeed (mft)
