Oh Fudge!

OK, so my "Herd it's your Birthday" card didn't get picked to be in the running for the next Stamping Idol being hosted by MFT. So, they said that us "losers" can still play along with the challenges each week and post to a special thread and you never know when maybe they'll pick a "wildcard" and give things a twist. So, while the top 10 are celebrating their victories with the challenge being a "celebration card of making it to the top 10", we losers are "celebrating not making it". Here's my take on it. It's my "Oh Fudge, I didn't make the top 10 to be the next Stamping Idol"...LOLOLOL I had a blast making this one. I used my MFT Here's the Scoop set and stamped the sundae and colored it with my Copics. I then used Glossy Accents for the Fudge and sprinkled red seed beads to resemble sprinkles. I inked the edges, did some Paper Pleating, and added some ribbon and some Primas. TFL

MFT Stamping Idol Audition

MFT is holding auditions for the next Stamping Idol over on SCS. I have several sets of MFT's but just haven't had time to use but one set. So, this was a great opportunity to ink them up and see what I could do. I used the Punny Farm set. I started off by stamping my girl and then hand-drew my fence and even added the wood grain. I then masked off my fence and stamped the cow. I stamped an extra girl and cow and cut out the hat, buckets, and cow's face so that I could put those on pop-dots to add dimension. I colored the entire image with my Copics. I soaked a paper towel with my Copics and blotted it on for the sky and even added a little to the grassy area.
