MFT Superstar Coloring Virtuoso

This is my entry for MFT Superstar 2017 in the Coloring Virtuoso Category. I don't know if I would consider myself a virtuoso, but I surely do enjoy it. I love the many different stamps that I have to choose from to add my personal touch in the way I color it. I have really come to love watercoloring and using my Copics. Since I could only choose one, I chose watercolors. 

MFT Superstar Clean and simple

This is my entry for the 2017 MFT Superstar Contest in the Clean and Simple category. I think that most of my cards could qualify in this category as I love the simple look. I have loved pulling out dies and stamps for this contest and realizing how my card making has evolved along with the MFT company. I have many dies and stamps from a long time ago which I still love to use.

MFT 2017 Card Design Superstar: Innovation Master

This is a design I have been thinking about for a long time. The first photo shows it closed and the second one shows how it opens. The circle serves as the second fold on a gate fold card. The bold Blooms just fit, don't you think? A small bloom on the inside corner shows through to the front for an added touch.

We are back home after spending a week away avoiding hurricane Irma. I'm happy to report that all is well here, nothing out of place and just as we left it.

This was a much needed time to sit and do some coloring and designing. This stamp is from Technique Tuesday. I stamped it in Versamark and heat embossed it with detail gold embossing powder. I colored it with copic markers and a water brush. I stamped the sentiment with matching blue to finish the card.

We are getting the car packed today for our trip south. We are leaving in the morning. I am so grateful to all who have prayed for us, texted and emailed us wishing comfort. These things are so important in uncertain times. I had a package from MFT's new release shipped to Cincinnati because I didn't know how long I would be here. The tree is from that package.  CAS is difficult for me but I am happy with the way this one turned out.

This is how I feel today. We left FL to escape Irma. We live in the Tampa Bay area and our adult children insisted that we leave. We came to Cincinnati to stay with our son and today found our that our home suffered no damage. I am truly blessed.

I had colored this little with Copics a few weeks ago when I was just coloring images. I knew that the panel would work for this sketch. I chose traditional colors for the card.
