Write Your Own Fairy Tale -MFT 2018 Card Design Superstar: Clean & Simple Genius

Hello Everyone,

I made this card to enter My Favorite Things 2018 Card Design Superstar Contest: Clean & Simple. I am a person who cannot stop adding elements onto my cards. This is definitely a big challenge for me to try pure simple style.  A quote says, ” Accept challenges so you can feel the exhilaration of victory”. So here I am and good luck to myself!


To begin with, I die cut a rectangle frame using My Favorite Things Inside & Out Stitched Rectangle STAX from a piece of watercolor paper. I selected Tim Holtz Distress ink in Picked Raspberry, Squeezed Lemonade, Twisted Cirtron, Abandoned Coral and Salty Ocean and applied them using watercolor brush onto the watercolor panel to achieve rainbow colored background. Then I splattered inks to make it a little “Fancier”.

I stamped selected images from My Favorite Things Magical Unicorns Stamp set onto a piece Brustol smooth paper using Versafine Onyx Black ink and hand fussy cut them with my scissors. I attached all images using glue and foam tape and I stamped sentiment underneath. I added 3 Sequins as embellishments.

To color my images, I used Zig Clean Color brush in 036 Light Blue, 052 Bright Yellow, 091 Light Gray, 023 Scarlet Red, and 082 Purple.

Thanks for stopping by. Good luck to you if you are participating this challenge as well. Have a great day!
