You Get a Gold Star–MFTWSC #232


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.


OK, I don’t mind admitting this one whipped me. I was totally hitting the wall on ideas for it, but my BFF Tammy made a couple of suggestions and one gave me a bit of a jump start. Not my most favorite card of all time, but it beats what I had ;-) I started with a Steel Gray card stock base, then, with a piece of Ranger Watercolor paper, I dry embossed one of the stars from LLD Lucky Stars Die-namics and brushed on some Summer Splash dye ink, Tickled Pink dye ink, and Peach Bellini dye ink with a water brush. I stamped the sentiment, from LLD Count the Stars with Steel Gray dye ink, and added a gold mirror paper LLD Lucky Stars Die-namics. I cut 5 copies—one from the gold paper and three from yellow scraps, glued them together for dimension, and adhered them to the card in the fourth element position. I tied around some hemp cord with gold thread, added some gold glitter paper stars and called it done!

Another sentiment from LLD Count the Stars was stamped on the inside.


That’s it for this week’s MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge! Thanks so much for stopping by—see you soon!
