Herd You Had a Birthday–MFTWSC #228


Hi, everyone, I’m back again 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 Challenge & Inspiration Team will be on hand to provide plenty of inspiration to get you started.


I had to really think out of the box a bit for this sketch but I like what I came up with. I started with a Grout Gray card stock base and stamped Cow Print Background on it with Grout Gray dye ink. Next I cut a piece of Sweet Tooth card stock, sponged MPD Concentric Circles for the round dot element, and tied around some baker’s twine. Then I did a watercolor wash with Blueberry dye ink on Ranger watercolor paper, added Rolling Hills Die-namics, cut from Sweet Tooth card stock and Green Room card stock, trimmed it to size, adhered it to the stenciled layer and cut the bottom edge with Stitched Basic Edges Die-namics before popping it up on foam mounting tape. The cow image, from The Whole Herd, was stamped with Black Licorice hybrid ink on the coordinating The Whole Herd Die-namics cut from Neenah Classic Crest Cover, Solar White Smooth, 110lb, colored with Copic markers and also popped it up on foam. The sentiment was stamped on Black Licorice card stock with Versamark, heat embossed with white detail embossing powder, and popped up on foam tape as well.

Another sentiment from The Whole Herd was stamped on the inside.


What a fun sketch it turned out to be! Thanks so much for stopping by! See you soon!
