Card with perfect pool water for Day 1

Card with perfect pool water background for Day 1 of the MFT July Release Countdown.

Hello! I’m especially excited to share today’s card with you, since I designed one of the products that I used… the Perfect Pool Water Stencil!

We’re down to the last Countdown Day, which means that the complete July Release will be available in the MFT Boutique tomorrow!

To create my background, I did some ink blending on a 6″ x 6″ piece of Sno Cone Card Stock with the Berrylicious Premium Dye Ink and Perfect Pool Water Stencil. You can see a short video of the process below:

As I state in the video clip, the effect is a mixture of the reflection of the sun light on the surface of the water and the distorted image of the turquoise tiles, on the bottom of the pool…

To create today’s card, I combined the new stencil with last year’s hilarious BB Sunshine & Friendship stamp set and dies. They are the perfect match!

I stamped the sentiment, from the same set, directly onto my panel, diecut with the largest die from the A2 Stitched Rectangle STAX Set 1 Die-namics, with Extreme Black Hybrid Ink. It’s the same ink that I used for the critters, so that I could color them with my Copic markers.

To finish the card, I added some Glossy Acccents to the tiger’s nose and to the toucan’s eye. I hope you enjoyed today’s project. I can’t wait to visit the MFT Blog to see what the rest of the DT created. I’ll be back tomorrow for the July Release launch, yay!
