Birthday Tweetings–MFTWSC #273


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 got out MFT’s March Release Tweet Friends, Tweet Friends Die-namics, and Cheerful Cages Die-namics for this card. I started with a Sweet Tooth card stock base. Then I cut more Sweet Tooth card stock with Blueprints 24 Die-namics and spread molding paste through Bold Paisley Stencil for the bottom element. Then I cut a piece of Ranger Watercolor paper, did a watercolor wash with Peerless Watercolors, stamped the sentiment from Tweet Friends with Black Licorice hybrid ink, and popped that up on foam mounting tape. Next I added a couple of strips of paper: Sweet Tooth card stock stamped with Plaid Background Builder and Wild Cherry dye ink, Blue Yonder dye ink, Pineapple dye ink, Blu Raspberry dye ink, cut it out with Blueprints 27 Die-namics, and added it, along with some Dots & Stripes Neutral Paper Pack, following the sketch.


Next I added some Puffy Clouds Die-namics, cut from Sweet Tooth card stock and Cheerful Cages Die-namics, cut from Silver Shine card stock. I cut three Tweet Friends Die-namics birds from X-Press It Blending Card, stamped them with coordinating images from Tweet Friends and Black Licorice hybrid ink, colored them with Copic markers, and popped them up on the cage with foam. I added some twine and enamel dots to finish it off.

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