Today I'm sharing a card inspired by My Favorite Things - MFT 2018 Creative Olympics. I combined two events to make my card. For Event 1 Stamping Slalom we were to use at least 3 stamp sets. I used 5, plus dies from 3 sets! For Event 3 Crafty Biathlon, we were to choose a technique and card type from the list provided. I chose Emboss Resist for technique and Shaker for card type.
To create the emboss resist background, I stamped and heat-embossed several small images in clear and then used an ink smooshing technique with Distress Inks. After I die-cut the shaker windows, I added some additional heat-embossing in silver to fill in some gaps. I coloured the kitties to look like my three kitties!
