MFT Release Countdown - Day 4

Welcome to Day 4 of the Release Countdown with My Favorite Things. We're counting down the days until all of these hot new products can be placed in your MFT shopping cart on Tuesday, April 8th at 10pm EST. You'll find complete details at the MFT Blog along with information on how to win an MFT voucher to put toward your cart contents!
  
Today's card features the Layered Umbrella and Cloud Cover-Up Die-namics along with sentiments from Blue Skies Ahead:

 
I created a watercolor-like background by pressing my Steel Grey and Steel Blue ink pads onto a craft sheet, spritzing it with water and then pressing a piece of watercolor paper into the ink. To create a cloudy, mottled look, I blotted randomly with a paper towel.

I love the pops of Lemon Drop and Red Hot in the Layered Umbrella and Fishtail Flag sentiment strip against the dreary watercolor background. The little black rain cloud is a leftover from the Cloud Cover-Up Die-namics, and the Steel Blue raindrops are actually the leaves dies from Blueprints 14.

Inside is another of the sentiments from Blue Skies Ahead, stamped in Steel Grey ink with plenty of 'white space' for a personal message.

I hope you're enjoying all of the Release Countdown products as much as I am this month, although I think I say that every month! Full product reveals are available each day at the MFT Blog as well as links to all designers and our guest designer, which you don't want to skip. Ü
