This week has gone much faster than I ever anticipated. Of course, I have slept the better part of 3 days away! I guess I needed it, and I am feeling a little better today than the last few. I have Stamp Club tomorrow and I need to get ready for that – these girls are actually wanting a project tomorrow – can you imagine that? In addition, Mallory is coming in for the weekend tomorrow. I’m looking forward to her coming home, dirty laundry and all! But that probably means major interruption during Stamp Club – oh well, my baby is coming home!

I’m sure most of you have already seen samples of the new releases coming out by My Favorite Things. Kim had a sneak peek on her blog a few days ago. Well, I finally got around to decorating my paint tin. I’ve seen so many with MFT designs, and I wanted to show you one not using any stamps at all.

I used the BasicGrey Romani collection and cut my paper to fit inside the tin. Finished decorating the background layer as I wanted, added some ribbon, and then inserted the DP into the can. The prima is mounted on the outside of the tin and a variation of May Arts and SU ribbons are tied on the handle.

I was just going to post the can, but then Jeanne suggested I put a card with it. So I did.

MFT Shower Time

I colored the image with Prismacolor Pencils, blending with Turpenoid, to match the colors in the tin. Why I didn’t use the BasicGrey paper for this as well, I can’t even begin to tell you. I was so stuck on matching the umbrella up with the paper that I had the card half done before it even occurred to me that I should have used the BasicGrey. Anyhoo, I stamped the hearts in pink and then outlined them and drew some rain with a Sakura Glitter Pen. The sewing machine was sitting there too, so I just couldn’t help myself and had to do some sewing. For me, that is sometimes faster than taping and gluing all the panels together. The polka dots on her dress are made with a Signo White Gel Pen.
