My Favorite Things - December's New Prouduct Tour

It truly has been a fantastic week of stunning previews, beautiful creations and wonderful MFT tips and tricks!!  I hope you have enjoyed all of the teasers as much as I have and once again I'm over the moon honored to have been asked to participate in this amazing release. 

For tonight's New Product Tour I've chosen to ink up, once again, the new Pure Innocence - Good Fortune.  I've paired her with the newly released Oval Open Scallop Doily along with some sweet papers from my stash.  

I stamped her onto my old stash of MFT perfect panels (retired ... sorry!!) and colored her with my Copics.  I did stamp and color an extra set of hands and head to make the depth of my paper piecing seem more realistic.  The green cherry blossom paper (from SU! I *think*) was very thin so I added another piece of plain cardstock behind it for stability.  Because I did this step, my paper pieced dress was thicker than normal so the addition of the hands and head were absolutely necessary.  

I created a few rows of jumbo scallops and I've flip flopped them to add a bit more dimension and interest.  I used some thick grosgrain ribbon from Michael's and a couple of self-adhesive pearls as my accents. 
I kept my interior simple and sweet using my Sweet Stack Die-namics for which to house my sentiment.  A bit of stitching and I called it a day on this one!  I truly hope you've been as inspired this week as I have been!

Thank you, as always, for coming by to visit!  Now, off you go!!  Please be sure to check out the unbelievable new releases from My Favorite Things available right now!  And make sure you go look at all of the gorgeousness that is on display now via the New Product Tour on the MFT Blog!
