Be Happy–MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge #229


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.


What a fun sketch!! I immediately saw balloons so decided why fight it, LOL! I started with a Sweet Tooth card stock base, then applied some Pure Plum dye ink, Orange Zest dye ink, Summer Splash dye ink, and Black Licorice dye ink with a medium water brush through Scattered Bars Stencil on a strip of Ranger watercolor paper. I popped that up on foam mounting tape, cut out three Party Balloons Die-namics, also from Ranger watercolor paper, did a water color wash, added twine, and popped them up on foam. I cut 4 copies of the medium size Happy Trio Die-namics, adhered them together for dimension with my Quickie Glue Pen, and adhered it to the base. I stamped one word from a sentiment from Totally Happy on Black Licorice card stock with Versamark, heat embossed with white detail embossing powder, and added it to the top balloon to finish the sentiment. I finished off with some enamel dots.

Another sentiment from Totally Happy was stamped on the inside.


And that’s it from me! Thanks so much for stopping by today—see you soon!”"
