Watercolored Safari Friends - MFT July Release Countdown Day 2

July 9, 2018

It's Day 2 of the MFT July Release Countdown. Today I'm sharing a card that features the Safari Friends stamp set & Die-namics, the I Heart Celebrating stamp set, and the Heart Balloons Die-namics

I had so much fun coloring these adorable animals (especially LOVE the lion!) from the Safari Friends stamp set with watercolors!! I stamped them on watercolor paper with Kraft Hybrid Ink, colored with watercolors, and cut out with the matching dies

I painted random watercolor washes with orange, pink, and yellow paints on another piece of watercolor paper, let it dry, then cut the heart balloons out of it with the Heart Balloons Die-namics.

I stamped the lower one-third part of a Primitive White card base with the Make Your Mark Background using Limelight Premium Dye Ink and rounded the bottom corners with a corner chomper. After I stamped a sentiment from the I Heart Celebrating stamp set with Milk Chocolate Premium Dye Ink, I assembled and adhered the animals and balloons drawing the strings with a brown gel pen.

Only two days until the release day! All the new products will be available for purchase on July 10 at 9:00 pm EDT.
