MFT May Teasers: Right on Target

Welcome to the final day of MFT May Teasers..we made it!  I sure hope you've enjoyed all of the Teasers both here and from the rest of Team MFT.  Just think, in a few short hours you'll be shopping up a storm in the Brand Spankin' New section of the the MFT Boutique!  Stop by the MFT Blog for another chance to win some MFT cash as well as a complete reveal of today's stamps and dies.

I'm showing off Laina Lamb Design Document It - Right on Target and the coordinating Die-namics Feathers & Arrows. What a combo, folks!

It just happens that Right on Target goes along quite nicely with my favorite rooster from Life's Direction (sorry, I can't stop using him!), and the new Mini Chicken Wire Stencil, which I've used to create a cool background on the Kraft card base. To achieve the look you see above, I simply sponged Kraft ink over the stencil and wah-la - cool background!

I used the trendy chalkboard technic to create my central image, mixing and matching sentiments from Right on Target with the feather from the same set, my beloved rooster from Life's Direction and the chicken wire stamp from Distressed Backgrounds. After stamping and embossing the images, I used a white colored pencil to draw a border and some doodles and then finished the layer off with edge distressing and a bit of wonky sewing.

Here is a closer look at the bottom half with a Fishtail Layer peeking out from beneath it.

The inside of my card features a row of roosters stamped in Kraft ink and another chalkboard sentiment layer, this time using a sentiment from Life's Direction and the Heirloom Label Die-namics. I couldn't leave without noticing those two devilish red feathers, could I?!  After cutting them out with the Feathers & Arrows Die-namics in Electric Red cardstock, I stamped each with background patterns from Distressed Backgrounds (polka dots) and the Mod Borders (chevron) in our new Red Hot ink. Fun feathers, huh?! Finally, I spritzed color here and there with my color spritzer tool and a dark brown marker to further that country-bumpkin look. ;-)

I'll see YOU all later for the MFT New Release Party over at SCS and then back here for the New Product Tour, so don't stand me up, ya hear?!
