MFPTT Ch 37 Concertina Card

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAThis week our new challenge starts on Tutorial Time on SpeedyTV Kathy Bradley brings us a tutorial on making a Concertina Card.


For my little leprecan I stamped (Lots of Luck by Mark’s Finest Papers a Heinrich Co.)Lots of Luck MFP on striped paper for his pants & socks and stamped on solid green for coat & hat and on white for his face & hands and fussy cut everything & then paper pieced him together.  For his BACKSIDE I stamped on the wrong side of the papers and then used my Versamark pen to outline where the stamp should go on the side that will show for his backside for socks, shoes, hatband, sleeves, etc. and then heat embossed with black EP.  Then glued his BACKSIDE on back of card to cover the parts of him that peek over the edge.  OH yes & of course I used Copics to color his hair & beard RED!TT ch 37 Fabulous Dogs  (I did the same procedure to achieve the reverse shamrock also)

Now it’ s your turn, go on over to Tutorial Time on SpeedyTV and follow the tutorial & enter your card before Friday and you will be in the random drawing for this stamp set from MFP seen to the right.
