I’ll Stand By You {MFT Card Design Superstar Contest}

Hi all!  I’m back again today (shocked, I know!) with an entry for MFT’s Card Design Superstar contest.  I was actually able to pull out two cards today and just in case I find another stuck somewhere back in my mind, I wanted to have enough time to post them by Friday’s entry deadline!

I love how this turned out!  I started by coloring with Gelatos on some watercolor paper.  I wanted to mimic sunset colors, but on the softer side, so I stuck with some oranges, blush and pinks.  After drying my paper, I cut it with Blueprints 13 to have it line up perfectly with my white panel cut with the Mini Chicken Wire Cover Up.  Before gluing my panel down, I spritzed it with Sheer Shimmer for a touch of sparkle.  Then, to give it even dimension, I used fun foam to pop up the entire panel on my Pink Lemonade card base.

I then pulled out two Pink Lemonade flamingos — they were extra from a previous card and I don’t get rid of my extras.  I save them and just recently started storing them in baseball/trading card sleeves.  Anywho……..I glued my flamingos down on a Zig Zag Stitched Oval, making them appear like one was giving the other a hug.  Their feathers are popped up with dimensionals.  The sentiment is from Tickled Pink and I stamped that onto a Pierced Fishtail Flags STAX.  The sentiment and the oval panel are all popped up on dimensionals.
