MFT May Release Countdown: 3!

Hi there! Welcome back to the May Release Countdown from My Favorite Things! We've got some super fun things to introduce today, so make sure you head on over to the MFT Blog for all of today's set reveals and details and to find out how you can win BIG just for commenting!

I went mixed media for my card today! I started by cutting a piece of mixed-media paper with the largest die in Blueprints 10 and proceeded to paint the paper with a layer of liquid gesso, then kraft colored acrylic paint. Once both layers dried, I stamped the entire piece of paper with the new Grid Background and Kraft Hybrid Ink. I then covered most of the stamped background with some modeling paste and the Small Brick Wall Stencil ;) I LOVE how this looks! So cool. I then finished with a large Gerbera Daisy snd Leaf-Filled Flourish that were both painted with a bit of liquid gesso to give them some texture.

Here is my card:

Only Three More Days Until the May Release!
