Sending You Sunshine

The is my take on this week's My Favorite Challenge in the MFT forum. The challenge was to finish your card inside and out. I used a combination of two MFT stamp sets, On the Pier and By the Seashore. These set are two of my very favorite MFT stamps. Living in California, and growing up at the beach, there is nothing better than a stroll along the ocean!

I colored with copics, pieced the shirt, and cut out and popped up the hat. On the twill ribbon, I stamped shells from By the Seashore in Memento Coffee Bean ink, highlighted them with a copic and heat set the images. I added a zig zag stitch around the edges. Then I added some twine and a seashell charm. All the edges are sponged with distressing ink. I also threaded the button with some of the twine. The twine, the twill ribbon, and the On the Pier stamp are all from this month MFT kit of the month.

On the inside I stamped the water from By the Seashore, masked a small part of the water, and then stamped the bird image.
