About Me

Hi, my name is Terri. I started crafting at an early age when my grandmothers taught me how to crochet and embroider on dish towels. Over the years I've tried many other crafting mediums, and have found my favorite in rubber stamping. My wonderful guy (Craig) supports me in everything I do........I'm very blessed!! I love learning new things and hopefully will inspire others to step out of their comfort zone and try a few new things. Thanks so much for stopping by....have a wonderful day!

MFP Tutorial Challenge 36

MFP Tutorial Challenge 36 - Citrus Bag Background

I'd seen this technique before but had never tried it, so this was a new one for me.  I taped the mesh piece down over top of my white cardstock and used a sponge to ink up the white cardstock.  Then I mounted this on a pink base and used a stamp from Mark's Finest Papers "Mothers Magnolia" stamp set for my focal point.  I colored it with Copic markers before mounting it on a decorative circle cut out of the same pink as the base card.  I popped this circle up with pop dots.  I stamped a sentiment, also from the "Mother's Magnolia" stamp set underneath that and tied a ribbon around the white piece.  I added a small bow to finish it off.  Thank you for stopping by and have a wonderful day.  Why not try this technique and join in the fun at Mark's Finest Papers challenge

Thank you to Mark's Finest Papers for choosing this entry as the winner of the Tutorial Challenge. I earned the stamp set "Broom Rides".
