MFT Teasers - Inspired by Flowers #3

Welcome back for Day 2 of MFT Teasers for the September release.  Today we're showing you the new Inspired By set.  This month brings the third installation in a year of Inspired by Flowers. I chose to use the Poppy from this beautiful set.  As a child in Elementary school, we memorized the poem "In Flanders Fields" for Remembrance Day (Veterans Day in the States) and it sticks with me to this day.  I stamped the poppy on some MME patterned paper and coloured it with copics.  I kept the colours simple and the layout is a past Sweet Sunday sketch.  I used only the Simply Scallops die and the flag from the First Place Award Ribbon die and stamp set.  I wanted to keep everything simple and understated.




Here are the details about the upcoming release on September 6 at 10 PM EST:
  • The MFT release is on September 6 at 10 PM EST. You can attend the release party from 8-10 PM EST here in the forum for fun, games, and prizes! All the new sets and dies will be available September 6 at 10 PM EST.
