Are you ready for another MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge? Here’s this week’s sketch. You can find the sketch on the MFT blog and also in the MFT forum on SCS, as well as in the weekly newsletter. The Design Team will be on hand to provide plenty of inspiration to get you started.

I love this sketch and I decided to go all vintage with it. I’m using Inspired by Butterflies for my sentiment and Die-namics Butterflies for my focal panel. Some bling and some distressing—with a tool and ink—finish it off.


Here’s a close-up of the butterflies. I put some bling on their bodies too by coloring up some clear jewels with Copic markers to match the patterned paper.

Here’s the sentiment, stamped on patterned paper and matted with Fossil, and cut with a Die-namics First Place Award Ribbon fishtail die.

And here’s the inside—a big butterfly from the set and another sentiment.
