"The theme for the first week is "Celebrate!" We want you to create a card or project that lets us know just how happy you are to be one of the TOP TEN!!!!"
I decided to express my happiness by spreading a little MFT love throughout my house. I made a framed piece to hang on my wall, which makes me celebrate every time I see it! The theme celebrate also reminded me of Celebrate MFT day which is on the 20th of every month. For Celebrate MFT day we are encouraged to use MFT colours - pink, black, and white; so I decided to stick to those guidelines as well.
The final stamped piece measures 12x12 (I mounted all my squares on a 12x12 piece of cardstock) and then mounted it into a 15x15 RIBBA frame that I got at IKEA (love that place!).
I used my favourite images and each one was stamped, coloured, and paper pieced (every one! I've been working on this for days!). I used PTI's raspberry fizz cardstock and patterned paper and intermixed the stamped squares with some old Basic Grey patterned paper (I think the line is Fresh and Funky/Aged and Confused). All the squares are matted on black cardstock and I finished it with a felt flower from SU's flower fusion and a button. I tried to embellish more, but each time I added something it took away from the stamping - and I really wanted the stamping to be the focus.
