Shopping With Friends

This is my attempt at combining two challenges in one;
  1. The SFYTT by Jen del Muro at I (heart) to Stamp.
  2. The 2nd week judges challenge for My Favorite Things "MFT Idol".

The layout was fun and worked well with the image I chose for the MFT challenge. The MFT challenge was to incorporate masking into your card. For that I combined two MFT sets; Lets Go For a Walk and Say Charge. To create the image I first stamped the girl and the dogs. Then I stamped a duplicate image on a scratch piece of paper, cut it out and layed it on top of my main image and stamped the purse so it looked like the Great Dane was carrying it in his mouth. Next, I stamped a shopping bag in the girls hand. Finally, I stamped and cut out a scratch shopping bag, layed that over the stamped image and stamped a second shopping bag to look like she was holding two!

For the inside of the card I stamped the shopping bag repeatedly with masking in different areas to give a random look to the bags. They did LOTS of shopping :0) I tried paper piecing for the 1st time by stamping the shopping bag on the same DP used on the front of the card, cutting it out and adhereing it to one of the stamped images on the inside of the card.
