Hi, everyone, I’m back with this week’s MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge! Are you ready? Here’s this week’s sketch. All of the details about the sketch challenge are available on the MFT Challenge & Inspiration blog as well as in the weekly newsletter. The MFT Design Team will be on hand to provide plenty of inspiration to get you started.
I decided to try for a masculine birthday card today—butterflies are masculine, right? Of course, this could be for anyone, but I think it has a bit of a masculine vibe going on. I started with a Whip Cream card stock base, then on more Whip Cream card stock I adhered some Trail Mix Paper Pack cut at an angle with Stitched Basic Edges 2 Die-namics and then popped the panel up on the base with foam mounting tape. Next I added another piece of patterned paper cut with Inside & Out Stitched Rounded Rectangle STAX Die-namics, reinforced with card stock, and popped up on foam.
Then I added the focal elements using Single Stitch Line Rounded Rectangle Frames Die-namics cut from Cherry Wood Adhesive-Backed Sheet, a watercolor washed background using Watercolor Paper Pad and Peerless Watercolors, Bold Greenery Die-namics, cut from Jellybean Green card stock, and Flutter of Butterflies – Lace Die-namics and Flutter of Butterflies – Solid Die-namics, cut from Milk Chocolate card stock and Tangy Orange card stock respectively. The sentiment was stamped with Versamark on Milk Chocolate card stock and heat embossed with white detail embossing powder then adhered to the frame.
And there you have it! Remember, you can get all the details by visiting the MFT Challenge Blog. You have the chance to win a $20 in MFT voucher. One winner is chosen at random each week!
