MFT So You Think You Can Stamp?!

Remember MFT Idol?? Well MFT is running another contest - this time titled "So you think you can Stamp?". Obviously it's based on the tv program So you think you can Dance. The first week entries are due tonight by midnight so I've been working hard on my entry.

This week's theme was "West Coast Swing – All the cool kids are doing it, and so can YOU! This is a dance filled with FUN! Think lift, flip and spin! MFT Stamps must be the prominent images used on your project." I went through a couple different ideas before I settled on doing a moving/magic circle card. I used a couple different tutorials - but mainly this one by Jackie Topa. Basically you rotate the circle using the tab and the first image is hidden and the second is revealed. Here are a couple of pics showing the transition:

Starting position:
1/4 turn:
1/2 turn:
3/4 turn:
End Position:
I'm pretty pleased with how this turned out. I don't make a lot of technique cards so it took a couple of tries before I got it right. The green and blue panels are sewn on and the paper is from a K & Co. Carolyn Gavin stack.

Hope you had a wonderful weekend! Later taters!
