Van Gogh meets MFT

by - November 06, 2022


Hi folks, 

I always look forward to MFT's Cardmaking Superstar competition each year. It pushes me to find creative ways to use stamps that I already own and get inspired from things around me! For this year's entry into the Coloring Virtuoso category, I was inspired by the distinctive style of Van Gogh. Just like his bright color palette, gorgeous landscapes and expressive portraits, I love dabbling with unique color schemes and creative life-life critter scenes! 

When I saw MFT's Sunflower Sweetheart, I was immediately reminded of Van Gogh's Sunflowers, and I knew it was the perfect opportunity to combine two of his celebrated art works - The Starry Night and Sunflowers. 

I first started off by masking and stamping the sunflowers using MFT's Milk Chocolate ink. I felt like stamping in brown ink added a layer of 'vintage' to this card. 

Then, I painted the Starry Night using acrylic paint. 

For the land, I hand drew a curved hill and ink blended the edges using green distress oxide ink. 
The sentiment was heat embossed from Unicorns and Glitter stamp set. I felt that the sentiment was fitting for the card as I was trying to recreate (a bad attempt for sure) some of the most previous paintings known to humankind. 

Later, I stamped the girl and some critters and colored them using alcohol markers and colored pencils. As always, I added some white gel pen details to finish my card!

That's it folks! I hope you liked this card :) I definitely enjoyed making it!
