Welcome to day FOUR of MFT Teasers!  Today, the gang is featuring both of the new á la modes.  I've made a card with Firecracker.




I did a lot of paper piecing on this image - I stamped it in Memento Tuxedo Black on both Choice Snow White cardstock and some scraps of Summer Fresh 6x6 papers from Simple Stories.  Before gluing the pieces on the main image, I colored it with Copic markers.  The white trim is the Mini Monarch Border Die-namics and I wrapped it with some Denim Twine.  I added a monochromatic sentiment tag with the First Place Award Ribbon Die-namics on Kraft Cardstock.  


On the inside of the card I used the Sunshine Die-namics to create little blast accent underneath the sentiment.  

Don't forget to hop on over to the MFT Blog for a complete list of designers playing along in today's Teaser.

Here are the Die-namics I used today:

ink: memento tuxedo black
accessories: copic markers, circle stax 1&2/mini monarch border/first place award ribbon/sunshine die-namics (mft), denim twine (mft), sewing machine, thread, foam tape
