Stylish Friends...teaser time!

Pin It
Time to get "oh so groovy" today! Release time is ALMOST here at MFT and I am really excited to share my projects with you today.

This is "Stylish Friends" and they are just that!
These girls are so fun to color up! I stamped her and colored her with my copic markers and went with the groovy vibe she was giving me.....I used the Concentric Circles Stencil and my copic airbrush system to make the fun design in the background.  I was aiming for a lavender/caramel/chocolate/grey color combo....which I think turned out quite pretty.

The sentiment I stamped in two colors to highlight "best friends". It was stamped in the combination of grape jelly ink and hot fudge ink. Yummmm

The first girls' skin tones are more in the "olive" family so I used the copic color E81 for the base for that green look and then layered over top more of the yellow browns such as E31/34....compared to the more pasty white (like me) girl below. Her skin was colored with E000/01/11 and a little E13 to give more of a pinky white look. 
For this "Stylish Friend" I decided to mount her on a couple of the new Pierced Rectangle STAX Die-namics.  Do you see a new background stamp? Yes, this is another look at the bonus "Large Scale Backgrounds" set that you will receive with a $60 purchase....Love these dots stamped in Whipped Cream Pigment ink.

Getting ready for the release? I am just on my way home from California and will be ready to party at the release! Be sure to check out all the inspiration at the MFT blog!

Here are the supplies available after the release (Sept 3rd 7pm PST):
